Mini excavators are the kind of equipment you look at and say, “wow.” Most people have only seen them on construction sites, operated by professionals. But that doesn’t have to be the case. With the right preparation and training, you can learn to use this equipment on your own. Here’s how:
1. Before you start any work, watch our Kubota mini excavator how-to video. It’s packed with tips to make the equipment experience more convenient. It’s also a nice extension of your operator’s manual and can address most of your questions. Plus, you can always call us at 1-888-COMPACT if you’re in need of some extra help.
2. If you’ve rented a mini excavator before and are looking to brush up on your skills, or if you just want a little more practice, check out our basic operations tutorial. It’s a quick watch that provides an overview of the most important parts of the excavator. Plus, it’ll make it easier for you to jump in and get comfortable in the excavator.
3. For experienced users, the control pattern is nothing new. But for new users, and those with equipment preferences, figuring out the way to adjust the settings of the mini excavator is important. The control panel dictates how the various buttons, knobs and joysticks work and gives you more control over the equipment.
4. Whether you’re a DIYer or Pro, VIP Onsite Delivery provides added convenience during your rental. All you have to do is select your equipment, choose pickup and drop-off dates and plug in your address. We do the rest. It’s another way Compact Power makes renting heavy equipment just more convenient.
So, are you ready to rent a Kubota mini excavator? Let’s talk about that next big project!
