MA Tool Rental Highlight: Mini Excavator  

At Rental Depot, we understand the satisfaction that comes with completing your own project, from start to finish. Our MA tool rental provides you the opportunity to use our inventory of tools without having to hire a professional. Knowledgeable staff members will work with you to ensure you understand how to use the equipment, and which machine is best for your project. To educate our clients, we will continue our biweekly tool highlights. This highlight is dedicated to the mini excavator.

Very, Very Heavy

Operating heavy machinery like this mini excavator may seem intimidating, but as long as you’re safe and understand what you’re doing, it’ll be a breeze! Also deemed “compact” excavators, these machines typically weigh in between 2,500 and 4,000 pounds. This is compact compared to their larger counterparts, who tip the scale anywhere from 26,000 to 55,000 pounds.

Many, Many Uses

Most mini excavators operate using hydraulic power to move the boom, stick, and attachment. These smaller machines are perfect for substantial landscaping and forestry operations, and minor construction and demolition projects. They are ideal if you are trying to level a larger plot of land, if you’re installing a pool, for example. They can also be used to dig holes and remove stumps, as well as to demolish small structures – like an unsightly backyard gazebo.

Mini Excavator, Big Power

When considering a mini excavator for your MA tool rental, it’s important to take the time to understand the height, dig depth, and weight limitations you might encounter. You should also make sure you know how to operate the machine, and of any existing structures, you may damage, such as sewer pipes. Mini excavators are preferred to standard size ones because they work well in compact areas (i.e., your backyard), and are easier to operate. They also have a variety of attachments, meaning they can be used for many different jobs.
