I am translating a web site of a Spanish construction company from Spanish into English, and I am not having any luck finding the names of the following machinery in English:

Camión portacontenidores
Case Poc 988b Giratoria
Giratoria 988b
Giratoria Case 9007
Fiat H 220 Cadenes cullera
Gir. Mini Retro Cullera Pel-job
2 Case 15 Miniexcavator
Martillo Minis
Martillos Retro Mixtos
Martillo Giratorias

Compactadota de Corrons VTD 30
Vibrante duplex Lebrero

Water pump
Maquina de cortar
Moto esbrosadora
Grupo electrógeno pequeño
Grupo electrógeno grande


Part of the problem is that even in their Spanish list, they are using common names for certain machines and technical names for others.
I asked the company for a manual to have an idea of what this machines are (I already translated a few that I found looking at websites of other construction companies), but I have a feeling that I will have to ask for it again.

Any suggestions are welcome.
Happy holidays!

You may already know about this but just in case you don't

Then of course there are the ProZ glossaries and looking in google for the bilingual sites, of which there are quite a few for construction machinery.
Hope something of this is useful
