For Construction Pros features a story on the growing number of uses for compact excavators.
Compact excavators can get smaller trenching and digging jobs done in small spaces where larger pieces of equipment would have difficulty maneuvering.
Their small size (some models are under 18,000 lbs) offers an advantage on the job and for easy transport. They can also find their way around obstacles and work with care near foundations and fences.
For Construction Pros offers tips on picking the right size excavator for the tasks that need to be done.
