Enter the total volume of excavation (ft^3) and the total time (min) into the Excavator Productivity Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Excavator Productivity. 

Excavator Productivity Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Excavator Productivity.

EP = V / T * 60

Variables:

  • EP is the Excavator Productivity (ft^3/hr)
  • V is the total volume of excavation (ft^3) 
  • T is the total time (min) 

How to Calculate Excavator Productivity?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Excavator Productivity.


  1. First, determine the total volume of excavation (ft^3). 
  2. Next, determine the total time (min). 
  3. Next, gather the formula from above = EP = V / T * 60.
  4. Finally, calculate the Excavator Productivity.
  5. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

Example Problem : 

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

total volume of excavation (ft^3) = 30

total time (min) = 10

EP = V / T * 60 = ?
