do Compact Excavators Loaders do? The compact hydraulic excavator differs from other equipment. movement and functions of the machine are accomplished with hydraulics. The compact excavator's work group and blade are driven by hydraulic cylinders, and the slew (rotation) and travel functions are activated by hydraulic motors.
With hydraulic powered attachments such as breakers, clamps, augers, and compactors, the excavator has uses other than excavation, and serves as an attachment tool carrier. Many excavators feature quick-attach mounting systems for attachment mounting, increasing the machine's utility.
Mini Loaders - Mini skid-steer loaders or compact utility loaders are smaller and include 'walk behind' cable or radio controlled skid loaders and the slightly larger platform skid loaders. Platform skid loaders have a small platform on the back instead of a seat for the operator to stand on. more.
