Thanks to a simple selector-switch, Mecalac patent, the driver can turn his compact excavator into a compact loader and then back again, using the same commands. Loading efficiency is maximized, it is made by the skid bucket supported on the blade which increases the machine’s efficiency thanks to the force of the thrust transmitted directly from the chassis to the bucket. The operation is performed more accurately using the control lever. The patented Mecalac cylinder coupling function, allows to synchronize the boom cylinders for perfect movement coordination and precision. It makes driving and handling easy, regardless of whether the operator is a novice or more experienced. And, whether engaged or otherwise, they’re yet another powerful feature along for the ride.
There’s also a cost in getting a tractor home. If you own a big trailer, this isn’t a concern, but if you don’t – and live far away from the auction yard – that bill can run a few hundred dollars. Kyle volunteered to haul whatever I bought the hour south to my place. So, with the repairs plus transport, I wagered the Kubota would cost $1,000 above what I bought it for. My new high price was $10,000 and, frankly, I thought it would go for a lot more than that.
The wheels on a skid steer typically have no steering mechanism, they are in a fixed, straight line relative to the body of the machine.  By turning the left and right wheel pairs at different speeds, the machine turns by skidding, or dragging its wheels across the ground.  The rigid frame and strong wheel bearings prevent the torsional forces caused by this dragging motion from damaging the machine.  This skidding motion tears up the ground on which the machine operates.

For those seeking a micro-excavator for urban or residential work, the Bobcat 325G track excavator offers the ability to perform excavation work in tight areas. Powered by a 27.7 horsepower Kubota diesel motor, the 325G is biased toward smaller excavation work like irrigation trenching, digging out smaller pools, and excavating pads for small structures.

The huge inventory of heavy machinery on eBay makes it incredibly easy to find a product that suits your needs. Consider a small, tracked Bobcat for construction work in confined spaces, or choose a wheeled Caterpillar if you move between sites frequently and don't want to invest in a flatbed for transportation. Start browsing today, and find new ways to improve your operational efficiency.  
An extended reach design uses multiple hinges and parallel lifting bars on the loader arm, with the main pivot points towards the center or front of the machine. This allows the loader arm to have much greater operating height while retaining a compact design, and allows the vertical movement to be less of an arc and more straight-up vertical, to keep the bucket forward of the operator's cab, allowing safe dumping into tall containers or vehicles.

Before the 1990s, all excavators had a long or conventional counterweight that hung off the rear of the machine to provide more digging force and lifting capacity. This became a nuisance when working in confined areas. In 1993 Yanmar launched the world's first Zero Tail Swing excavator,[9] which allows the counterweight to stay inside the width of the tracks as it slews, thus being safer and more user friendly when used in a confined space. This type of machine is now widely used throughout the world.
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.
