A mini digger, also called compact excavator or micro excavator, is a small size excavator. It is used for small scale work and precise work such as road network improvements and trenching programs. Mini-diggers are often used by private individuals for levelling or landscaping work.
There is a difference between mini excavators, weighing less than 7 tonnes, midi-excavators, weighing approximately between 7 and 12 tonnes. There are wheel mini-excavators and midi-excavators, but most excavators are on tracks.
The compact excavator has been invented by the Japanese company Takeuchi in 1970.
