A mini excavator can be used in a variety of different ways, including digging and moving large objects. Excavators or mini diggers are frequently seen on construction sites and roadwork development projects. Although they are compact, they are powerful and efficient if manufactured by names like Kubota and Hyundai.
The first mini excavator was produced by Yanmar in 1968, followed by versions from Takeuchi in 1971. They have become extremely popular since, being compact and lighter than standard excavators, these machines are ideal for smaller domestic or commercial projects. They use hydraulic systems and are powerful and efficient. They are also designed for operator comfort and ease of use. Models with wheels are ideal for use on the roadside, and those with tracks can be used on rough terrain like gravel, rocks and soil.
Mini diggers are small, yet powerful, and versatile as they can be used with a selection of attachments for a variety of tasks. These include digging trenches, holes and irrigation ditches, flattening ground for landscaping, demolishing small buildings and removing tree stumps. Jobs that are too big for the humble shovel are perfect for a mini digger.
These items of small plant, are manufactured with features which let cabs swivel 360 degrees. This is great when working in restricted spaces yet needing extensive manoeuvrability. Things to take into account when considering hiring one of these machines include:-
Our mini excavators are sourced from market leading manufacturers, so they go the distance. Even so, at Rhinos, we operate a policy of upgrading our plant machinery whenever possible. This ensures that our customers get the benefit of the latest in engineering technology. So what do we do with the existing models? We sell them to customers of course! Our used plant machinery offers amazing bargains, as they are still giving peak performance, at a fraction of the price of new.
Mini diggers make short work of jobs like utility trenching, tree planting, concrete removal, light demolition, home repair and renovation, to name a few. A quick-coupler attachment mechanism means swift fitting of grapples, augers and hydraulic breakers. They can not only dig up dirt, but push the dirt back into the hole after levelling. They are also useful in and around the garden, and can even be transported on the back of a small truck, and taken through the house and out into the garden.
Zero tail swing is generally an aspect of the modern mini digger, allowing the cab to fully rotate without overlapping the track width. This also helps when working in confined spaces, and stops the machine from hitting objects when rotating. Articulated booms, makes it simpler to dig close to walls etc, without having to be realigned.
Uncompromising attention to detail, state of the art technology and impressive security gives these nifty diggers the edge. Hiring our machines is a preferred choice for many, for a number of reasons. They are not particularly cheap to purchase, and you may not need to use your investment often.
