1. What size machine?
Perhaps the first consideration when choosing a mini digger is: How large should it be? The generic term 'mini' is applied to an enormous selection of machines, typically ranging in size from the smallest, at about 1 tone, to machines that weigh in at 10 tonnes.
Verify the dimensions of the dig site carefully to be sure the mini digger you are hiring will fit in.
2. How deep will you need to dig?
You need to look at how thick the trenches or holes you Wish to dig need To be and make sure the digger version you hire has a longer range of expansion to execute the job. Too short an arm and you're going to wind up with trenches shallower than you had planned for.
3. How wide do you will need to dig?
The width of your trenches is another important variable you will need to consider, as bucket measurements vary tremendously in size. With the perfect width bucket, you can be certain of digging precise trenches in constant arcs. Too narrow a bucket will lead to a messy attempt to carve out leftovers, although a too-big bucket will leave you scuppered, maybe needing to fill in the trench walls.
4. What height are you dumping at?
This is dependent upon your dumpster or dump truck, but you should be careful to make sure your mini digger can reach high enough to ditch the excavated material. Think about the dig zone carefully and the potential place of the digger relative to the hop. If the latter is on higher ground, you may need to check at a bigger digger.
