Don’t let their small size fool you; compact excavators (also known as mini excavators) are powerful digging machines that are anything but "mini." compact excavators with advanced hydraulic systems can often outperform larger tractor loader backhoes, which are limited to only 180 degrees of workgroup movement.
The house on a Bobcat compact excavator can continuously rotate 360 degrees. This allows for enhanced spoil placement, superior visibility and reduces repositioning for work in tighter spaces. A tracked undercarriage gives you additional benefits like superior flotation compared to a wheeled machine. Also, compact excavators use less fuel and can be hauled with lighter, more fuel-efficient trucks, keeping your hourly costs down.
