How to operate a mini excavator

How To Operate A Mini Excavator

Do you have a tight access earthmoving job? If so, often times you will need an excavator or a bobcat nimble enough to fit down the side gate, yet robust enough to get the job done efficiently. This is where Little Diggers steps in. All of our machines are designed specifically for, but not limited to these types of projects. Our machines tackle the big jobs, too.

You may need a mini-excavator to do things such as dig a trench, load soil onto one of our tipper trailers for hire, rip up old garden beds, dig a soak well or dig footings. It’s all made easy by Little Diggers

You may also find that you need a rock breaker smash up concrete, an auger to dig post holes or a limestone block-lifter to help build a retaining wall. We supply all of this equipment at some of the cheapest rates in Perth

In the following video, Cam will run you through the basics on how to operate a mini excavator when you hire from Little Diggers.

What you will see:

00:20: Explains how to start the mini excavator

00:40: Explains how to engage the hydraulics on the mini excavator

00:52: Starts to explain how to operate the joysticks on the mini excavator

01:38: Explains how to track forward and back and also how to turn on the mini excavator

02:06: Explains how to slew with the foot pedal for when you are in a tight position on the mini excavator

02:30: Shows how to use the dozer/push blade on the mini excavator

02:38: You’ll see how to widen and retract the tracks in a safe manner on the mini excavator

03:48: You can see how to engage rabbit speed to track a bit faster on the mini excavator

04:08: Explains how to release the bucket safely from the hitch on the mini excavator and
