Operating an Excavator, Skills & Tips

Operating modes

Productivity can be enhanced by taking advantage of an excavator’s operating modes. Fine grading mode or throttle position mode. These automatic settings optimize both the speed of the engine and hydraulic settings some jobs can take more power than others. Read the equipments owner’s manual for operating instructions. Before you operate the excavator!!!

Positioning for loading trucks

One of the most common mistakes is failing to plan where to put your Demolition Debri. Blocking yourself in can result in moving material more times than necessary. Take time to Visualize how the job will progress to avoid boxing the machine in between Obstacles or the Demolition Debri, or limiting your reach. Causing your productivity to slow down, in the end costing you and your Customer time and money.

Visualize what part of the structure you want to start on and how you’re going to load your trucks.
Building demos quickly, doesn’t take long with the power of an excavator.
