These lightweight models have nothing to envy to larger excavators, they can use almost the same equipment such as buckets or hydraulic rock breakers. Their small size makes them very pleasant to handle in urban areas or confined spaces, but pay attention to the maximum height of the boom as the collision with a high cable is quick to happen. Mini excavators are relatively new TP equipment in general, which is why these machines take advantage of the latest technologies such as an ergonomic dashboard and custom-made manipulators for professionals. Or air conditioning inside the cabin.
For light earthmoving, the mini excavator is very useful. This public works machine can dig trenches.
