Earthmoving can be a challenging industry, with success largely dependent on the quality of the equipment.

Excavator types and specifications

The capacity of our excavators ranges from an operating weight of 1,820 kg to 5,200 kg. Along with capacity, it’s important to select a model based on access restrictions and operational requirements. While all of our excavators are easy to transport and manoeuver on the worksite, tail swing radius and boom swing specifications can differ between models. If you need easy operation in confined spaces, smaller units are generally more suitable. If you need additional weight capacity or extra power, larger units are ideal.

From the overall dimensions of the machine to its lifting capacity and all-terrain capabilities, it’s also important to select professional equipment that meets the demands of the project and the specifications of the job site. Our excavators are designed to ensure maximum productivity in all conditions, with the compact design of each machine ideal for urban construction sites and tight work zones.

If you need a zero tail swing radius for maximum manoeuvrability or an independent boom swing for confined spaces, our excavators are the ideal solution. All of our products feature an advanced hydraulic system and optimal power controls for maximum efficiency and lower fuel consumption.
