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)

To calculate an excavator productivity, divide the total volume of extraction by the time.

## How to Calculate Excavator Productivity?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Excavator Productivity.

- First, determine the total volume of excavation (ft^3).
- Next, determine the total time (min).
- Next, gather the formula from above = EP = V / T * 60.
- Finally, calculate the Excavator Productivity.
- 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** **= ?
