LC/DBM HorsePower - June 2011
Click on the image or title below to find to more information about the Product

Don't let their small size fool you; compact excavators (also known as mini excavators) are powerful digging machines that are anything but mini. With advanced hydraulic systems, compact excavators can often outperform larger tractor loader backhoes, which are limited to only 180 degrees of workgroup movement. This equipment uses less fuel and can be hauled with lighter, more fuel-efficient trucks, keeping your hourly costs down. Take a careful look at the special features and choose the one that best fits your needs and budget. For your convenience the compact excavators have been arranged by cost.
