3T Excavator

The 3T Excavator is one of the smallest in the PAL Hire range, making it perfect for smaller sized construction sites.

This excavator can dig up to a depth of 3m which is remarkable for a compact mini digger.

Used in a variety of applications from large home renovation projects to landscaping projects and building sites, these are one of the most popular excavators in our range.

The main arm can be detached which will then allow for digging along a footpath or fence with ease.

Rubber tracks allow for work to be carried out without damaging the surface where excavation is not required.



These excavators are most suited to utility work and general construction.

The smooth and precise pilot controls and compact rear end make operating the excavator easy.

Although this machine is compact, the operating carriage is fairly sized and comfortable.
