Mini Excavators are extremely versatile. In general use they’re excellent for digging the odd trench here or there, however, many are not aware of more “bespoke” jobs they can be used for. Provided they’re armed with the right attachment, mini excavators are capable of completing a wide range of activities on your jobsite. Ian McCarthy, our Beresfield Hire Branch Manager has outlined some unique jobs illustrating exactly how versatile the Mini Excavator can be: 

yanmar concrete demolition and rock breaking

Attach any hammer, grabs or demolition shears to transform your excavator into the ultimate demolition and concrete breaking machine. Our Yanmar Excavators feature an innovative 3 pump design and dual 2 way flow ensuring smooth operation throughout the breaking process. Have your rocks and concrete broken fast with your Mini Excavator making short work of the tough stuff.

yanmar pool and house excavations

Get precise, fast pool and spa excavation with your Mini Excavator. Unique to Yanmar Mini Excavators is the “angle of boom offset” - this allows you to dig at right angles on both sides making it perfect for pool excavations. They can access spots with 900mm or more clearance getting into those rugged and extremely tight spots. With summer around the corner, this is an absolute must if you’re thinking about renovating the family pool area
