Title: Multipurpose counterweight housing and counterweight

Abstract: Construction equipment such as an excavator is provided with a counterbalance assembly positioned at the aft end of the construction equipment. The counterbalance assembly includes a pair of enclosures and a counterweight. The pair of enclosures is separated by a back panel and a bottom panel connected to opposed side walls of the enclosures. The back panel, the bottom panel and the opposed side walls form an aperture for receiving the counterweight. The pair of enclosures and the counterweight are separable from each other and from the construction equipment to enable transportation of the construction equipment apart from the pair of enclosures and the counterweight.
