Technical Hints for Excavator Owners & Operators

With these notes we give hints to guide you in maintaining and operating your excavator. These are meant to augment, not replace, instructions given in your handbook and parts book which are supplied with each new excavator.

Our notes are short and may not be comprehensive. They do, however, answer most of the common questions that we at DIGBITS are asked on a regular basis.
