Excavators are heavy construction equipment consisting of a boom, stick, bucket and cab on a rotating platform known as the "house". The house sits atop an undercarriage with tracks or wheels. A cable-operated excavator uses winches and steel ropes to accomplish the movements. They are a natural progression from the steam shovels and often called power shovels. All movement and functions of a hydraulic excavator are accomplished through the use of hydraulic fluid, with hydraulic cylinders andhydraulic motors. Due to the linear actuation of hydraulic cylinders, their mode of operation is fundamentally different from cable-operated excavators.
Mini excavators, also called compact excavators, have been gaining popularity because of their ability to work and maneuver in tight spaces that larger excavators can’t reach. In terms of size, mini excavators are classified as having an operating weight of 9,999 pounds (4,535 kg) and under. The machine movement and function is also controlled through the transfer of hydraulic fluid. With its versatility and ease to operate and transport, the mini excavator is used by contractors from all different backgrounds and is capable of performing a wide range of tasks that include utility trenching, concrete removal, tree harvesting, repair digs, small scale excavation operations, tree transport and planting, grave digging, light demolition, home repair, renovation, and roadside applications.
