The demand and use of mini excavators has hugely expanded since they first came onto the scene in the early 1970s. The compact design with its wide range of attachments and multiple bucket sizes, makes it ideal for a range of functions where lighter equipment is needed for smaller earthwork operations.

So what are the main benefits of using these versatile excavators?

Agility: One of the main reasons why many operators prefer the mini excavator is because of its ability to work in confined spaces. They can access many areas that a larger excavator can't and are often a lot more precise.

Ease of use: Most operators can learn to use a mini excavator very quickly. Its responsive and easy-to-use controls make it simple to operate. If you have used a standard excavator before then operating a mini excavator is an even simpler task.

Transportation: Mini excavators are a lot less expensive to transport around than larger excavators. They are easy to transport by trailer which also decreases the logistical cost and hassle.

Damage Limitation: In general, because the mini excavator is lighter, it causes less damage to its working environment. Many are fitted with Rubber tracks to prevent churning up the ground in environments where damage to operating surfaces needs to be prevented as much as possible.

Financial Savings: Operating a mini excavator instead of a larger one can save money in many operations. Its smaller engine consumes less fuel and any spare parts are often less expensive and easier to fit.
