Logged in you can make a note at each device type and save it at the device type.



producer price index

You can change the producer price index by selecting the desired year. By selecting it, the average new values are recalculated in all unit sizes and their derived values. Information about the average new value can be found in the basic information in chapter 5.




Enter the parameter to be interpolated into the first field. The primary characteristic quantity is always the first column after the device size key.

Choose a size between the smallest and the largest characteristic quantity. The interpolated row is displayed in the table.

In the second field a suggestion for a device size key is automatically displayed, if it can be derived from the primary characteristic quantity. If it cannot be derived, enter it individually and confirm your entry again by clicking "calculate".



Specify additional equipment and devices

By marking a device size in the first column of the device size table, you can display the additional equipment and devices valid for this size. The key of the ZA and ZG is automatically adjusted to the selected device size.

Please note that you can only add additional equipment and devices to "My Devices" if you have saved the assigned device size before.

You can click on "Reset selection" to display all additional equipment and devices again.



Time value of construction equipment

On the My Devices page, you can calculate a time value for your saved device types. To do so, enter the technical condition and the year of construction of the device as well as the desired time of calculation of the current value in the form MM.YYYY in the two fields. The values necessary for the calculation will be determined accordingly. Information on the formula can be found in "Chapter 10. Time value of construction equipment" in the Basic Information.

Important: Time value can be calculated back till the year of construction 1971.

Please note that the producer price index set via the select box on the page is not relevant for the calculation of the time value.

Working material

Here you will find additional working material to the list of construction equipment.

Wear parts catalog for BGL 2020

Expenditures for maintaining the operational readiness of light equipment are a significant component of total equipment costs. The assumption of costs for maintenance and equipment care, repairs, damage repair and replacement of wear and tear parts is therefore a frequent point of discussion - especially in joint ventures (ARGEN) - which should definitely be contractually regulated in advance in order to avoid disputes between the parties involved in construction. Based on the data in the BGL 2020, a separately available wear parts catalog for the BGL 2020 was therefore developed for better handling.

Coming soon.

Building equipment in ARGEN

The list of construction equipment plays an important role, especially in construction consortia. If the partners of a consortium provide the consortium with construction equipment (equipment stock) for the execution of the construction contract, this must be regulated by contract. The use of the CONSTRUCTION EQUIPMENT LIST as a basis for settlement in Argen is generally accepted and is even recommended in the current sample contract of the Arbeitsgemeinschaftsvertrag (ARGE-Vertrag) of the Hauptverband der Deutschen Bauindustrie e.V.

Building equipment in ARGEN (Austria)

Also the Austrian sample contract of the ARGE contract as well as the rules of procedure for ARGE contracts of the professional association of the building industry refer directly to the construction equipment list. This list sets - practically significant for ARGEn - the value of construction equipment in a quantifiable relationship to each other, so that construction equipment can be provided by the ARGE partners in proportion to their participation in the ARGE.
