Category: Excavators

rental equipment in Idaho FallsOur line of rental equipment in Idaho Falls, Chubbuck, and Pocatello includes excavators, specifically mini excavators. These are fantastic pieces of equipment for businesses and contractors who need to complete tasks related to construction, landscaping, and demolition. In rural cities in Southeast Idaho like Idaho Falls, rental equipment like this is highly valuable. Mini excavators are compact excavators that are smaller and more lightweight. However, they still bring tons of power to the job. They can maneuver along various terrain and around tight corners that standard excavators would have a difficult time with. Our mini excavators are comprised of:

  • A cab - The area where the driver sits and manipulates the mini excavator. Most mini excavators include a cab with full 360-degree rotation capacity for maximum efficiency.
  • An undercarriage - This is where the gears and motor are housed. It contains the roller track used to move the excavator along the ground.
  • A house - This is the part that is connected to the undercarriage. It holds the fuel cylinders and excavator engine.
  • A boom - A long-hinged extension that’s compatible with many different attachments.
  • Engine - This powers the excavator.
  • Stick - This is an extendable piece that connects the undercarriage with the boom.
