A loader is one of the most commonly used heavy machinery in the construction industry. The main purpose of using a loader is to upload sand, debris, dirt and mud into other vehicles, thereby clearing rubble and digging materials in the construction sites. Besides being used in the construction industry, loaders are also used in the farming, mining, civil engineering, urban engineering projects, small earthmoving works and logging industry.

Basic Feature Of Loader
Loader, is a machine usually wheeled, that uses a wide tilting bucket on the end of movable arms to lift and move materials. Often the bucket can be replaced with other devices depending on the nature of the work. This is the basic feature of a loader. The loader assembly can be removed or permanently mounted.
