Tight and Narrow Access Excavation Projects: Mini Diggers is the Most Useful Equipment

26 March 2021

Excavation projects are normally conducted in areas that have tight and narrow spaces. The accessibility of these projects can be small enough that huge excavators and other similar equipment cannot easily enter. Fortunately, mini diggers have a form factor that makes them perfect for these types of projects.

Mini diggers are generally comprised of three assemblies: house, workgroup, and undercarriage. The house structure of these mini diggers is comprised of the operator’s compartment, engine compartment, hydraulic pump, and distribution components. This specific assembly, alongside the workgroup, can effectively rotate or slew upon the undercarriage without any limitations. The workgroup, on the other hand, has a boom, dipper or arm, and attachment for the excavation process. Ultimately, the undercarriage is intended to support the assemblies of the house and workgroup.

Access to Tight and Narrow Spaces

When it comes to accessing and working on tight and narrow spaces, mini diggers are simply the best option out there due to their accompanying features. The overall composition of mini diggers is so light and compact that they can enter the pathway leading to the project site without any difficulties. From their house to workgroup assemblies, all components are manufactured to be small so they can operate at any given site or space. What makes these components even more special is that they can still perform and function like a heavy-duty digger or excavator despite their much smaller form.

And since their undercarriage is comprised of highly efficient rubber or steel tracks, they can easily traverse different types of terrain. Alternatively, these mini diggers can be quickly towed behind a large pickup truck. Their small form factor allows them to be moved conveniently and safely.

During their operations, mini diggers can guarantee minimal or even zero damages around the project site since most of them come in either ultra-tight tail models or zero tail swing models. These models are known to move around the site conveniently without needing large access areas. Additionally, they can offer versatile operations given that their compact yet powerful attachments can be replaced at the end of their boom. Some of their attachments include buckets, couplers, rippers, hammers, and augers.

Narrow Access Excavation Projects

Mini diggers can work on various excavation projects that only have tight and narrow spaces. Some of the notable tight and narrow access excavation projects include the installation of pools, hot tubs, ponds, and other outdoor features, demolishing of small buildings and structures, and repairing sewer and utility lines. Other projects that have small access areas are tree harvesting, log picking, home renovations or restorations, landscaping projects, roadside applications, farming applications, excavation of trenches, holes, and ditches, movement of ground products, and posthole digging projects.
