Are you thinking of purchasing mini excavator? Would you like to know more about the type and variety of mini excavators that are available in the market? You are at the right place. The following is a lowdown on the difference variety of mini excavator tracks.

Mini excavator tracks are of two kinds. Tail swing, which is also known as conventional house and zero tail swing. If you are wondering what kind of track you should be buying, it would actually depend upon

  • The output requirements that you have
  • And the amount of available space which you have

Conventional house or tail swing excavators

These kind of excavators are equipped with a rear counterweight. This helps stabilize the excavator while it’s working. The counterweight stretches six inches in front of the excavator tracks. The only drawback perhaps is that in areas where the work space is a bit tighter, the tracks might take up more space than expected. However, these kind of tracks have a few added benefits as well which include:

  • These offer the best lifting abilities.
  • The bucket and arm break out force is bigger and better as well when compared to other models of mini excavators
  • It helps achieve additional leverage
  • The cabs are roomier which allows the operator more room and makes it easier for them to maneuver the machine
  • This is the main reason why most operators prefer using the conventional house excavator tracks

Zero Tail Swing Excavator Tracks

The zero tail swing excavator tracks are just as useful and functional when compared to the conventional house excavators. They can dig better depths, reach the optimum cutting height and are much easier to navigate, especially in areas where the working space is comparatively smaller. These work better in areas like small and narrow corridors, and along the walls and barriers which are immovable.  Another additional advantage of zero swing excavators is that it’s easily accessible at ground level as well. The maintenance is easy for this very reason because all parts are easily within reach.
