MiniExcavators, also known as compact excavators are multi-purpose machines designed to work in tight spaces that larger excavators and backhoes cannot access. These convenient machines can be equipped with several handy attachments such as various sized buckets, hydraulic breakers, and grapple buckets. The mini excavator is capable of performing a wide range of tasks that include utility trenching, concrete removal, tree harvesting, repair digs, small scale excavation operations, tree transport and planting, grave digging, light demolition, home repair, renovation, and roadside applications.

Excavators used in mining operations can be up to five stories high. Minor landscape jobs can be worked using a rubber track mini-excavator that stands little more than seven-feet high. Deciding what size of excavator to rent for a job depends on two factors: how much material you need to move and how much reach you need with the boom and arm.
Rubber-track mini-excavators are available with buckets that are no larger than a 5-gallon bucket and a boom and arm with only ten-feet of reach. Larger excavators, those that are still small enough to be transported on a low-boy trailer, can have up to 30 feet of reach and hold almost a yard of material.
Excavators are used to dig trench, remove material, place material, and landscape on a large scale. Excavators are also extremely adept at demolition and there are a variety of rental implements that an operator can attach to the arm of a track hoe besides a bucket. Excavators are commonly used in tandem with dump trucks, end dumps and side dumps. Track hoes are practical rental machines for the following types of jobs:
