FAQs About Mini Excavators

How much does a mini excavator weigh?

What can a mini excavator do?

A mini excavator can do most of what other earthmoving equipment can do. It has a boom, stick, and bucket for trenching, loading, and dumping soils. It is different from other loading equipment, like a backhoe, because it has tracks instead of wheels, making it more productive in wet conditions. We also offer attachments such as breakers or hammers, augers and different sizes of buckets. Learn more about what an excavator can do at Project Uptime.

How wide is a mini excavator?

The width depends on the model of the mini excavator. Smaller compact excavators start at three feet wide, and larger models can be about seven feet wide. This does not include the articulating arm as it is swinging. Measure your jobsite and ensure you will have enough space for a mini excavator to move around comfortably and safely.

Can a mini excavator remove tree stumps?

Operators have used mini excavators for all sorts of landscaping and clearing jobs, including stump removal. Before you choose a mini excavator, you'll have to consider how large and tough the tree is and how deep the roots go. You want to choose a compact excavator that has the power and lift to remove the stump without damaging the equipment. United Rentals also offers thumb attachments for our mini excavators that can assist in stump removal.
