What is a Mini Excavator?
September 5, 2018
A mini excavator, as its name suggests is small and highly manoeuvrable earth moving machine, making it ideal for doing excavations that have tight fit access.
Just like heavy earth moving machinery, a mini excavator works by using hydraulic fluid to activate hydraulic cylinders used to perform all movement and functionality. Our mini excavators drive on rubber tracks and features a backfill blade and independent boom swing.
We have several attachments we can include in your mini excavator hire. Our expert owner/operator, Jared, is happy to discuss your project with you to suggest the best attachments to get the job done.
A mini excavator won’t damage or tear up your lawn. A mini excavator will cause the least amount of disruption to your worksite, which makes it perfect to use while other building works or clean-ups are going on.
When you hire from us, you’re not just getting a mini excavator, you’re getting a licenced and insured operator, with many years experience who will get the job done in the fastest time possible with the least disruption to the surrounding area.
