Mini excavator have become very popular because they can be lifted, dug, trenched, loaded and backfilled. They have all kinds of attachments. They do all this work in small spaces and can be transported from one workplace to another in a small truck.

How can these capable machines be improved Find a way to get them to do more, to do better. The overall design of the zero tail was all the rage a few years ago; it enhanced the mini excavator’s ability to work in the typical tight spaces of these machines. But zero tail swing has advantages and disadvantages, especially reducing the load-carrying capacity.

As a result, the tail-swing reduction has spread to the market. There is now a range of machine designs to suit all applications in which mini excavators work. Eder, brand marketing manager for case construction equipment “Our CSERIES mini excavator offer zero-tail pendulums, short RADII or conventional configurations,”Says Ed Brenton, director of operations at mini excavator. “There is also a long-arm option, including a counterweight, which allows operators to do more work without having to relocate the machine, Brunton says.

Adjustable boom allows for offset excavation to facilitate work around buildings or other obstacles. Case C series models all have adjustable booms. The phone’s smallest model, the CX17C, also has another popular feature, a variable-width landing gear (3ft 3in retraction; 4ft 3in extension) and adjustable blades. This allows the machine to fit through a standard 48-inch door while providing maximum stability once in place. Landscape architects and others who work in development environments prioritize this feature.
