Mini Excavator

Mini excavators are the best when it comes to excavating, trenching and other utility work. Mini excavators are efficient and fast, weighing about 20,000 pounds. Given that mini excavators are lighter in weight, they offer reduced track marks as well as top ground damage. If you have some digging work to do especially on a crowded site then a mini excavator should be the best option, this is because of it is small in size. Likewise, the small size of compact machines makes it easier for transportation to the site.

What Are the Major Parts of an Excavator?

  • Cab: Here is where the operators sit and control the machine. The cab allows for 360-degree rotation.
  • Boom: This is a long-hinged extension that connects the attachments.
  • Engine: This is the part that gives the machine power to move the hydraulic tracks and the boom.
  • Attachments: The part where you fit the rippers, trenching buckets and grading buckets and other parts to the boom.
  • Undercarriage: The rollers, gears, sprocket motor, idlers and the rubber tracks that help move the mini excavator over the ground are in undercarriage.
  • House: Holds the excavator engine and fuel cylinders.
  • Stick: It's a piece that connects the boom to the undercarriage.

Is It Possible to Rent a Mini Excavator?

Mini excavators could be expensive to purchase especially if you only have one or two jobs to carry out, it's, therefore, economical to rent one. You can hire mini diggers or a mini backhoe since they're ideal for the DIY projects that involve major excavation.

What Types of Jobs Can a Mini Excavator Handle?

Small excavators can handle a wide range of jobs, including:

  • Light demolition
  • Stump removal
  • Digging holes and trenches
  • Transporting and planting trees
  • Ploughing snow
  • Landscaping

How Can I Make a Mini Excavator Versatile?

A Micro excavator (or micro digger) comes with different buckets that are ideal for handling different jobs. However, you can make your mini excavator more versatile by adding a few attachments. Some of the available attachments are:

  • Hammer
  • Auger
  • Grapple
  • Dozer blade
