This report analyses the market in France for crawler excavators. They are defined as machines which are mounted on steel tracks and are capable of turning through 360 degrees, with service weights ranging from 6.1 to over 600 tonnes. Off-Highway Research classifies machines up to 6.0 tonnes as mini excavators, and they are not included in this report. Hydraulic excavators with a weight classification of between 6.0 and 12.0 tonnes are referred to as ‘midi or ‘compact’ excavators. These machines, which often have a special design to minimise the tail swing and make them useful on confined job sites, are included in the report's definition of the crawler excavator.
The findings presented in this report are based on the existing database of Off-Highway Research and on an interview programme undertaken in France with the leading manufacturers, importers and distributors in October 2019.
