On the end of the stick is usually a bucket. A wide, large capacity (mud) bucket with a straight cutting edge is used for cleanup and levelling or where the material to be dug is soft, and teeth are not required. A general purpose (GP) bucket is generally smaller, stronger, and has hardened side cutters and teeth used to break through hard ground and rocks. Buckets have numerous shapes and sizes for various applications. There are also many other attachments which are available to be attached to the excavator for boring, ripping, crushing, cutting, lifting, etc. Excavators in Scandinavia often feature a tiltrotator which allows attachments rotate 360 degrees and tilt +/- 45 degrees, in order to increase the flexibility and precision of the excavator.

22HP and 25HP sub-compact 4WD tractors powered with fuel-efficient engines with 2 range Hydrostatic transmission. Sub-compact chassis allows maneuvering in small, confined spaces and are designed for maximum versatility with available front end loader, mid-mount mower and backhoe--all of which can be attached to the tractor at the same time. These tractors are tailored for small landowners, horse stall owners and commercial users. Each model includes more standard features and boasts superior performance at a lower price than the competition.
At that point, I hit tractorhouse.com and tractordata.com to see what the specific models had sold for recently with similar hours. (Hours on tractors are like miles on a car, and are noted with the make and model on most auction listings.) I ran the makes and models through Craigslist, too, and did a general Google search with the terms “for sale” tacked on. A 2015 post on the L3750 on tractorbynet.com without the backhoe and fewer hours went for $13,900. Other posts said $10,000-plus in decent condition and an ad from Pennsylvania with nearly identical hours and no backhoe listed for $13,500. I made a mental note that, if there weren’t any problems with the actual machine, I wouldn’t spend more than $11,000.

Modern hydraulic excavators come in a wide variety of sizes. The smaller ones are called mini or compact excavators. For example, Caterpillar's smallest mini-excavator weighs 2,060 pounds (930 kg) and has 13 hp; their largest model is the largest excavator available (a record previously held by the Orenstein & Koppel RH400), the CAT 6090, which weighs in excess of 2,160,510 pounds (979,990 kg), has 4500 hp, and a bucket as large as 52.0 m³.
A smart combination of a compact excavator with a compact loader, the MCR range is now available in the 6, 8 and 10-tonne class.

Tractor paid for, and loaded on to Kyle’s trailer, I called my wife. After a brief “conversation” about the home renovations all that cash could cover, the tractor was dropped off at Phelps’ garage. Rather than me figuring the machine out, I had Bill give it a once over, replace all the fluids, the few bad hoses, straighten the bent loader bucket, and re-pack that leaky swing arm cylinder. There was a new battery, too, and a few other things, which rung up to $1,500 or $500 more than I had anticipated before I started bidding.
