You have decided to invest in a construction machine for your work. If you already know how to drive a mini-excavator, you want to buy a quality machine and you are planning to carry out big jobs, then look no further, a 2T5 mini-excavator will do the job perfectly!
This type of machine has many advantages and if you are willing to pay the price, you will be satisfied with its performance. Here are a few things to know before you start:
First of all, you must know the price range of the machine of your choice before starting your research in order not to be swindled, which is very frequent in the construction sector.
For a new 2T5 mini excavator, prices can quickly climb! You will have to count from 25 000€ and up to 35 000€ for a high quality machine. Depending on the performance you are looking for in a mini excavator, the price can quickly increase. If you plan to use your mini excavator regularly and over a long period of time, you will be able to amortize its cost over the years and thus afford to invest in a premium brand.
If, however, you don't plan to use it as frequently, it might be a better idea to opt for a second hand 2t5 mini excavator. Prices are indeed lower even if the range remains between 20 000 € and 27 000 € for the top of the range. However, beware of scams on the internet because the main disadvantage of second hand is that it does not offer the security and after-sales service that a company or dealership offers to its customers. If you buy a used mini-excavator from a professional, he usually offers a warranty of a few months, otherwise beware of the condition of the machine and check it carefully (play in the boom, arm, hydraulic leaks, unperformed revisions ... etc).
The 2T5 mini excavators are appreciated because they are productive and adaptable. Thanks to their accessories, they can carry out various tasks, from trenching to leveling and foundation work. Thanks to their weight and stability, these excavators will offer you a good grip on the ground and will optimize their lifting capacities.
Finally, their retractable chassis allow them to adapt to any environment, allowing you to easily perform all types of work and everywhere!
Be careful, even if the 2T5 mini excavators are ergonomic, they cannot be transported with only a B license. Indeed, with such a high weight, you will need a special license to tow your machine. If you do not intend to use a transport service, you should check the GVWR (Gross Vehicle Weight Rating) of your vehicle. A machine of this weight is normally transportable on a trailer with a GVW of 3,500kg.
If, however, for reasons of price, transport or performance too high for what you plan to do, you want to reduce the model of your choice, you can go for 1T800 or 2T models. You can buy new ones for 15,000€ less with, for example, the RHINOCEROS XN-20 mini-excavator which is available from 17,400€ HT. It will be less powerful but just as malleable and more transportable thanks to a pair of loading ramps!
