Excavators aren’t included in the typical farm fleet lineup, but should they be? 

Excavators are known for their unrivaled digging job thanks to their exceptional durability and powerful breakout force. But ditching isn’t the only task they can accomplish. With dozens of different sizes and features, the John Deere excavators can each cover a wide variety of tasks while only leaving a small footprint. So, why should you consider a mini excavator for your farm?

  1. Clearing Land

Whether you are clearing land for a new operation or making room for more livestock, an excavator could be your saving grace. With several different attachment options, you can choose the solution best suited for your land. The ripper and grapple are both durable attachments that will be able to get rid of even the toughest tree stumps. 

  1. Mowing and Mulching

With the ability to cut alongside banks and ditches, excavators can go even where tractors cannot. Taking on high reach jobs is one of the excavator’s specialties, and will make any mowing or mulching job a breeze. Attachments like rotary mowers, bush hogs, and flail mowers will be able to take care of your land.
