In 1842 Deere entered a business partnership with Leonard Andrus and purchased land for the construction of a new two-story factory along the Rock River in Illinois. This factory named the "L. Andrus Plough Manufacturer" produced about 100 plows in 1842 and around 400 plows during the next year. Deeres partnership with Andrus ended in 1848 and Deere relocated to Moline Illinois to have access to the railroad and the Mississippi River. There Deere formed a partnership with Robert Tate and John Gould and built a 1440-square-foot (134 m2) factory the same year. Production rose quickly and by 1849 the Deere Tate & Gould Company was producing over 200 plows a month. A two-story addition to the plant was built allowing further production.
Hydraulic excavator capabilities have expanded far beyond excavation tasks with buckets. With the advent of hydraulic-powered attachments such as a breaker a grapple or an auger the excavator is frequently used in many applications other than excavation. Many excavators feature a quick coupler for simplified attachment mounting increasing the machines utilization on the jobsite. Excavators are usually employed together with loaders and bulldozers. Most wheeled compact and some medium-sized (11 to 18-tonne) excavators have a backfill (or dozer) blade. This is a horizontal bulldozer-like blade attached to the undercarriage and is used for levelling and pushing removed material back into a hole.
