    My son loves construction equipment. Whether it be trucks, or machines. I have a few common pieces of equipment, and parts of the equipment that I would like to have translations for. The context of all the equipment will be simply common names of equipment one sees on a typical construction site. Here is a list of a few (i've filled in ones I think I know, please correct any mistakes):

    Pieces of equipment:
    Backhoe -
    Excavator - Scavatore
    Bulldozer -
    Dumptruck - Autoribaltabile
    Concrete Crusher -
    Front-End Loader -
    Crane - Gru
    Pick-up Truck -

    Parts of the equipment:
    Tracks (of a machine) -
    Bucket (of an digging machine) -
    Hydraulic Cylinder -
    Cab (of a truck) -
    Outriggers (of a crane or backhoe) -

    Common related terms:
    Construction Site -
    Dump (as in unloading a truck or bucket of a machine) -
    Construction Equipment -

    This is a short list, there are so many more, but this is a good start. Please add anything else you may be able to think of.

    Your help is much appreciated!

    Hi Mumawalde,
    I'm sorry but, this being a dictionary forum where each thread must be related to one word or expression, multitopic threads and lists of words are not allowed (Rules)
    Feel free to lookup the individual elements of your list in our Dictionary and create new, individual threads for the ones that haven't already been discussed or don't appear in the Dictionary.
    You are also welcome to contribute to existing threads.

    Thank you for your understanding and cooperation :)
