What is the difference between a hydraulic excavator and a electric rope shovel?
The biggest difference between these 2 machines are their arms. A hydraulic excavator bends its arm to operate the bucket on the end, while the a electric rope shovel uses its two large arms to operate the bucket on the end by stretching the cable wires.
A hydraulic excavator can also be used in a variety of environments, from gardens at home to construction and mining sites due to its variations in size. In contrast, the a electric rope shovel is mostly used in overseas for mining operations due to its size.
