What are the mini diggers and why you need them?

Micro, midi mini and standard excavators are different types of the same machine. So, what is the need for different classes of excavators? 

The variation between different categories is directly related to their size and weight. We will discuss these categories in this series to make differences between these machines to help you to choose which one will be perfect for you.

What are the functions and features of a mini digger?

In the construction industry, the mini or compact diggers become very popular due to working capabilities, versatility and easy manoeuvre in the small places or tight rooms where larger diggers can’t work. The AEM or association of equipment manufacturers categorised the mini digger as a machine weighs more than metric tons.

Mini diggers are the first choice of contractors from various backgrounds due to their superb versatility and ease of operation. The list of their use is endless, however, some of the use of mini diggers are utility trenching, light demolition, home repair and renovation, tree planting, and concrete removal, etc.

The Machines:

Mini diggers contain wheeled or tracked chassis or undercarriage, boom extension, bucket attachment, and cab. The latest model of mini digger also comes with the retractable carriage. This allows the mini digger to fit in tighter places and expansion of the track is also possible.

Weight of mini digger:

The size of the mini excavator is a great advantage. It can be anything up to 6 tons. Its lesser weight allows mini diggers to be used as a versatile machine. 

These machines are very lighter in comparison to the larger counterparts, that is why they can do many types of works on terrains that are sensitive. It causes lesser damage to the ground in comparison to larger counterparts. 

The lighter machine is more adaptable to the soft and wet ground where heavier machines cannot work. It is also operative advantages that these machines can be transported to different places easily.
