So, you need a new mini excavator but don’t want to break the bank. No worries. We’re here to help. Now more than ever it’s important to spend wisely, and it starts with identifying what kind of mini excavator you need for your current and potential workload.


“A buyer can save money on the purchase of a new mini excavator by doing research and their homework before making the purchase,” says Tim Boulds, construction equipment product operations manager at Kubota. “The buyer should be able to provide what applications the excavator will be used in and what the excavator will be used for, what size excavator is needed to efficiently complete the job as well as what future work lies ahead if possible. By knowing what the current work requires and what future work may require, the buyer can determine exactly what size excavator is needed. Knowing this information will help the buyer not buy too big or too small of an excavator, adding costs to the bottom line. Taking the time to do a little research, the buyer will be more prepared to buy the correct mini excavator for the job resulting in more financial success in the long run.”



Important mini excavator specs to consider include operating weight, digging depth, bucket breakout force and maximum reach.


“Matching a machine’s capabilities to application requirements is paramount in ensuring a smart investment is made,” says Erik Coyle, product specialist at Yanmar. “Buying a machine that is larger and stronger than the user’s most demanding application is not cost efficient.”

Potential buyers should also consider zero-, near- and short-radius units and the truck/trailer requirements to transport the excavator to and from the jobsite safely. Lighter excavators typically don’t need larger, Special trailers or CDLs to transport. Canopy units versus ones with enclosed cabs offer an economical choice.


DIG-DOG excavators are competitively priced, and a wide range of our machines are available in canopy configurations that would provide customers with a more price conscious choice.
