How do I avoid damaging the ground of the worksite I am operating on?rent1If ground damage is a concern, we recommend rubber tracks instead of steel tracks. All of our mini excavators are on rubber tracks, and we have a large variety of compact track loaders. These machines are lightweight enough to minimize ground damage while you complete your landscaping and earthmoving projects. If operated correctly, you should not see much, if any, site damage.
What’s the excavator’s “tipping load”?rent1The tipping load is the point at which the equipment (usually an excavator) begins to tip off the ground when lifting a load. On most excavators, the tipping load is 50% of the operating capacity (or 25% of the operating capacity with the boom at max height). How high the bucket is raised changes how heavy of a load the machine can lift. Make sure you check out the specs section of each equipment rental to find machine lifting capacities.

What size of excavator do I need to complete a demolition project?rent1Demolition projects need high-powered machines. For small demolition projects such as garages or tool sheds, we recommend renting at least a 6-tonne excavator like the John Deere 60G. If you have a large-scale demolition project such a house or apartment, you’ll need a 20-tonne excavator or better, such as the Komatsu PC200 LC-8.
