Excavator Attachments Available From Wheeler Machinery Co.

Attachments make Cat excavators a versatile choice for your fleet. Consider these Wheeler Machinery Co. attachments for excavators:


As the excavator's signature attachment, buckets come in a variety of forms for different applications. Types of excavator bucket attachments include:

  • Digging buckets: Also known as a tooth bucket, a digging bucket comes standard with many excavators. They feature various teeth shapes and widths to penetrate different surfaces.
  • V-bottom buckets: A V-bottom bucket has an angled shape to make it easier to dig into soil. These buckets tend to find use in trench and ditch digging for pipe laying.
  • Skeleton buckets: Skeleton buckets consist of bars separated by gaps that let fine materials pass through. Operators use skeleton buckets in applications that require separating coarser and finer materials.

Utility Attachments

Excavators work with utility attachments that modify the excavator's purpose. These accessories let excavators perform tasks such as:

  • Grabbing: Thumb and grapple attachments enable excavators to pick up materials and move them.
  • Creating impact: Drills, compactors and hammers create different types of impact to achieve specific goals.
  • Cutting: Attachments like rippers and multi-processors cut into materials of various thicknesses.
  • Site clearing: Rakes and similar attachments clear debris to prepare sites for construction and other projects.


A coupler lets an operator quickly switch between attachments. These accessories work well in applications that need multi-purpose solutions.

How to Choose the Right Excavator for Your Fleet

New excavators from Caterpillar® come in a variety of sizes suited for different applications. Consider these key differences when deciding on the right model for your fleet:

Compact Excavators

Also known as mini excavators, compact excavators offer a high level of maneuverability. As a result, they work well in tight spaces for projects that don't need a large amount of power.

Mid-Sized Excavators

A mid-sized excavator provides slightly more power than a compact excavator while offering increased maneuverability. Consider these machines when you need more strength than a mini excavator can offer.

Standard Excavators

Most excavators on the market count as standard excavators, also known as full-sized excavators. Commercial construction professionals consider this type of excavator to be the industry standard.

Large Excavators

In situations that require massive demolition or construction, many fleet owners choose large excavators. These machines provide the highest power levels and capacity of all the excavator types.
