Evaluating the work space will also help determine if a conventional, minimum radius or zero tailswing configuration is the best option. "Case compact excavators are all zero tailswing configuration, which allows them to be used in tight areas," Wolf asserts. "Compact excavators have the versatility to perform similar tasks that larger excavators do. Whether it's trenching, demolition or landscaping, compact excavators have the power and work envelopes to match the tasks."
Since conventional models are the most economical option, evaluate your applications to determine if the extra capital investment for a zero tailswing model is a necessity for your jobsite conditions.
