Compact or Mini Excavators are tracked or wheeled vehicles that are mostly used for digging and lifting but can also be used with a wide variety of attachments. They normally come with an independent swing boom and a backfill blade. Operators must develop a good understanding of how both the blade and boom operate.
FSN’s Skid Steer program includes a classroom session covering compact excavator (mini) operational theory, regulations and safety features as well as hands-on training to give the operator a basic understanding of how the equipment works.
