What Size Mini Excavator Do I Need?

When choosing a mini excavator rental, know the correct size. Typically, the size of your mini excavator will depend on the following aspects:

  • The kind of work you want from your excavator
  • The shape and size of the location you are working at
  • The nature of tools and attachment that will go with your excavator
  • Mode of transportation for your excavator

You will need an excavator under six tons for most mini excavator jobs. But, remember, having a big machine isn’t always necessary for a better job.

Can I Use Standard Excavator Attachments for Mini Excavators?

Excavator attachments vary in terms of job type, size, and application. So, there are various excavator attachments to choose from, depending on the site and job type. These excavator attachments include Tree Slayer, Brush Eliminator Cutter, Disc Mulcher, Auger, Thumb attachments, etc.

In terms of attachment sizes, it’s important to consider the excavator size to determine the right attachment. Otherwise, attachment compatibility can be a problem. To ensure you’re using the right size, you will need to measure the following parameters:

  • Pin diameter
  • Dipper Gap
  • Pin Centers

So, typically, a standard excavator attachment doesn’t always fit a mini excavator.
