To carry out work both in enclosed spaces and outdoors, several alternatives are available to you. The mini excavator remains one of the best options as it offers its users a good compromise between the quality of the machine, its price and its performance.
A 1 ton mini-excavator is perfect if you are a private individual with no experience in the use of construction machinery, and if you need to carry out small jobs, without a large scale.
Its first asset is its weight. It is easy to drive and remains at a good proposal to be transported easily and in a multitude of places as vast as sinuous.
Then, thanks to its good stability, this model of mini excavator will allow you to perform many different tasks with a good pace. For example, among the mini excavators in the RHINOCEROS range, the XN-12 would be the one that best suits your needs. As wide as the 880 kg XN 08 model, at 93 cm, this shovel will allow you to access tight spaces without any damage or rubbing against walls. It will also allow you to easily make trenches, thanks to its working depth of up to 1.60 meters and will also offer you an excavation height of about 2.60 meters. Its power makes medium scale work easily accessible, especially earthworks or small demolition (interior wall, stone wall, tile slab...etc)
Very versatile, these mini excavators can be equipped with multiple options such as quick couplers, grapples, cleaning buckets, or hydraulic augers to plant stakes, make a fence or do your planting. This type of accessory as well as the machine are guaranteed for 2 years by Mini Excavator RHINOCEROS.
Moreover, as it is flexible and easy to handle, it is ideal for professionals but also for individuals who need a little time to adapt and a little practice to start.
Its third asset is its quality/price ratio. Indeed, if you are looking for a new 1T mini-excavator, because you want to do a lot of work over time, go for this option, it is by far the most interesting!
In terms of price, you can find many models and a wide range. You can find 1T mini excavators for sale from 9 500€ HT at RHINOCEROS, up to 20 000€ at premium manufacturers such as Yanmar, Hyundai, Takeuchi...
If however you do not wish to invest in a new construction machine, you can opt for rental if your work is of very short duration (beware that this can quickly become expensive taking into account the time of transport, cleaning...etc), or you can acquire a second-hand 1T mini excavator, less expensive and which you can easily resell once its use is over. Indeed, the market of second hand mini excavators is very dynamic.
One of the last advantages of a machine of this size is in terms of transportation. As its tonnage is low, you can easily and simply transport your mini excavator with a B permit.
