Smaller than its big brother, a compact excavator is perfect for jobs where not as much power is needed. It’s also more easily maneuvered in close quarters, so it’s a good fit on cramped construction jobs or other applications where space is limited. Though they can range as heavy as 8.5 metric tons and still be considered compact, their lighter weight makes them easier to transport.
This may tempt you to tackle it yourself, if you’re planning a long or mid-range distance move in the near future. Though much more manageable than full-sized excavators, much can still go wrong, when moving machinery that weighs several tons. Its moving parts also must be expertly fastened down - otherwise disaster could strike will driving down the highway.
The Efficient Choice
In addition, long-distance transit is not typically cost-effective on a do-it-yourself basis. Once you factor in the cost of fuel, lodging and eating out - you’re likely only saving yourself a few dollars per hour. Thus, your time would be better spent at your regular job, where your per hour earnings are far more substantial.
