Cline Rents offers a number of excavators with different buckets and attachments to meet your needs for excavating in Kirkland.
An excavator is a piece of earth moving equipment. Sometimes referred to as a digger, an excavator is made up of a reinforced cab where the operator sits, a boom that extends out from the cab, a dipper attached to the boom, and a bucket on the end of the dipper. The entire assembly is usually mounted on a tracked or wheeled base that is capable of rotating up to 360 degrees.
Excavators were originally built with pulleys and cables with steam power to drive them. As technology has improved, excavators are gas or diesel powered and use hydraulic cylinders and pumps to move the articulated arm.
There is a wide variety of excavators available on the market in many different sizes and capacities. Most excavators have detachable buckets allowing them to be outfitted with much more than a bucket, essentially make them much more than an excavator / earth mover.

Midi excavators run up to 10 metric tons. Also very popular, these machines can handle bigger jobs quicker and are used heavily in building construction, trenching and sub-division development. Many have zero swing radius like their little brothers and while requiring a CDL they are still easily trailered and transported.
Standard excavators run up to 90 metric tons and are used for large commercial construction projects where speed and efficiency are needed to move large amounts of soil and materials. Most excavators in this category are not zero swing designs given the large counterweights involved.
