The advantage of using used mini diggers instead of their larger cousins is primarily due to the ease of use in tight spaces.
Used mini diggers are usually cheaper to buy than their larger counterparts as well as being cheaper to transport which is why they are often favoured by contractors working on smaller sites. This is largely down to their ability to fit in tight spaces amongst other things. If you’re deciding which machine to buy for your next project, Fenton Plant Machinery have used mini diggers ranging from 0.8T up to 8T for sale and ready to pick up.
From experienced machine drivers, to first time users, mini diggers can be of benefit to almost anyone. They are easy to operate with simple to understand controls means that almost anyone can use the diggers within minutes. With their compact dimensions, mini excavators are able to operate in spaces a larger excavator wouldn’t be able to operate in. Many models actually have the ability to fit through a standard doorway.
When operating in built up areas, a quieter machine can be extremely beneficial, especially with the neighbours. With less weight and often a smaller engine, the noise produced by mini diggers is significantly lower than when compared to larger diggers. This makes them particularly popular with contractors in residential areas. When thinking about which used digger to buy, transportation is always a big issue, but with mini diggers being so small and light, they can easily be transported with just a car and trailer.
As mini excavators are significantly lighter than the bigger machines, the damage they cause to the working areas is much less. As well as being lighter, the rubber tracks (rather than steel tracks often fitted to larger machines) are much kinder to the ground they are operating on and there is less need to clear large spaces for the machine to operate in.
