When maneuverability, space and ability to get into tight places is important in your excavation or construction business, a mini excavator is a piece of equipment to add to your inventory. The term “mini” is generally used to describe anything smaller than a standard excavator, and these smaller versions usually have an operating weight of just under a ton to up to 8.5 tonnes.
The mini or compact excavator can operate with wheels or tracks, with the tracks the most popular option in most industries. Versatile and flexible, these mini excavators can do a lot of work in a day.
With these compact excavators, however, there is still the issue of time spent in changing the mini excavator attachments for digging and compacting or for specific types of custom attachments. In considering which system to use, there are a few important factors to consider.
Single Tool for Digging, Placing and Compacting
One of the biggest considerations for any type of excavation work is efficiency. The less time wasted on the job in changing attachments, the happier the customer and the fewer people required on the job.
There is the option to consider mini excavator attachments that do more than one operation. In the United States, there is at least one company offering attachments that include a bucket and vibratory or roller compaction function. This allows the equipment operator to use one tool to dig the hole, move the soil or material and then compact it all in one smooth and seamless operation.
Customized Sizes and Options
With the various needs for excavation, lifting and compacting, having the ability to work with a company to create custom mini excavator attachments is another consideration. These attachments can be designed to complete the specific tasks you need, making work easier and boosting efficiency on any job.
