How Useful Are Excavators In Construction Projects?

What Are The Capabilities Of A Mini Excavator?

These machines are extremely durable and are complete workhorses. They are great for working in small or hard to reach areas for tasks such as landscape gardening or installing driveways.

Moving Dirt & Rubble

To understand how much rubble these excavators can move is determined by the type of ground and its conditions. However, these diggers will work to move masses of dirt far quicker than just manpower alone. Roots, rocks or other larger bits of debris may slow them down slightly but they’ll work through them no problem too.

The speed in which rubble is dug and moved also depends on whether you require accurately measured spaces made. Typically, a mini excavator with a skilled driver can move roughly 30 cubic meters of earth an hour which means simple landscaping projects can be completed with ease in a matter of hours with one of these machines.

Lifting & Moving With A Mini Excavator

The mini diggers we have for hire are more than capable of lifting and moving rubble from close to the machine. Usually, the depth in which you can dig is restricted due to underground obstacles, especially in residential projects however, the excavator has the capabilities.

Our diggers are optimised to collect and distribute earth close to the machine in order to make them ideal for smaller locations. As a sturdy and stable excavator, it uses its long arm to extend its reach whilst maintaining a very good lifting capacity. This small but mighty machine is extremely versatile and powerful, suitable for various small construction projects.
