Compact excavator gets you in and out of a tight squeeze

With a retractable undercarriage that can shrink down to 27 inches, the Yanmar Super Mini Excavator B08-3 is well suited for working in backyards and built environments where you need to squeeze through gates and doorways. The tracks extend to 33 inches, and the independent track suspension allows you to stay level on sloped ground. The machine will dig to a depth of 4 feet, 11 inches and weighs 2,337 pounds. It runs off a 9.1-horsepower Yanmar diesel engine.
