How Wide Is A Mini Digger?

Mini diggers, also known as compact excavators or mini excavators, are essential pieces of equipment for a variety of construction, landscaping, and demolition projects. Their small size and powerful capabilities make them ideal for working in tight spaces and on jobs that require precision.

In this blog post, we’ll explore the different sizes of mini diggers, focusing on their width, and the various applications they can be used for. We’ll also discuss the benefits of using mini diggers and how they can help you complete your projects more efficiently.

¾ tonne mini digger

The ¾ tonne mini digger is designed to fit through standard gateways and doorways with its narrow width of 30 inches (76 cm). This compact size makes it perfect for hard-to-reach areas, such as backyards and narrow side passages.

Despite its small stature, it is capable of digging to a depth of 1.8 meters (5.9 feet). If you need to break up concrete, this mini digger can also be equipped with a concrete breaker attachment, making it suitable for tasks like removing paths and driveways.

1.5 Tonne Digger

When you need a bit more power and digging capacity, the 1.5-tonne mini digger is a great option. It can pass through 40-inch (102 cm) gaps, providing access to rear gardens and other wider spaces. With a digging depth of 2.3 meters (7.5 feet), this mini digger can handle larger-sized jobs like digging trenches, creating ponds, or excavating for foundations.

1 Tonne Dumper

To complement the mini diggers, we also offer a 1-tonne dumper for material transport on your worksite. This compact dumper can carry heavy loads and manoeuvre in tight spaces, making it a valuable addition to your project. If you require assistance, we can also provide a skilled operator with our dumper trucks.

Benefits of Mini Diggers

  • Space-saving: Mini diggers are designed to work in confined areas where larger machines cannot fit, making them ideal for residential projects or jobs with limited access.
  • Versatile: With a variety of attachments available, mini diggers can perform a wide range of tasks, from digging and grading to demolition and landscaping.
  • Cost-effective: Their smaller size means lower operating costs and fuel consumption compared to larger excavators, making them an economical choice for many projects.


When selecting a mini digger for your project, it’s important to consider the width of the machine, as well as its digging capabilities, to ensure it will meet your needs. From the compact ¾ tonne mini digger with a 30-inch width to the more powerful 1.5-tonne digger with a 40-inch width, there’s a mini digger available to suit various job requirements. With the right equipment, you can complete your project efficiently and effectively, no matter the size or scope.
