Well. the answer to this question is easy, you can go for compact models that can deliver effective and efficient results without prompting you to spend a lot. What equipment should go for?

Read on and find out for yourself why.
Kubota U25: Key features
Powerful and clean running engine
The U25 is powered by a low noise, low vibration, fuel efficient, and clean running Kubota 20.9 HP engine. It complies with the US Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA’s) 2008 Tier IV emissions regulations. On top of these, the engine is packed with a fuel system that warns you, the operator, when the tank is close to being full. This will prevent you from overflowing your engine, which can harm your fuel systems; this, in turn, can help you make the most of the investment.
State-of-the-art digital panel
As minimalist as it may seem from the outside, take note that the U25 is not your ordinary mini excavator since it comes with an intelligent control system that can play a key role in the reduction of downtime by showing the current working conditions, engine rpm, hour meter, routine maintenance alerts, and diagnostic readings, among other data. With this, you’ll know when to visit your service centre.
Strong bucket and breakout force
The U25 is armed with a strong bucket that boasts of 2,320 kilograms of force that is coupled with a quick coupler and dedicated bucket. With this, you can be sure that you can perform tasks effectively and efficiently, no matter how tough and heavy they may be.
ROPS and FOPS Canopy
You can be sure that you’re well protected against rollover accidents as well as falling objects with the U25 because of its Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) certified canopy that can deliver top-notch safety and security while you’re doing your job. On top of these, it comes with more legroom and deluxe suspension seats that improve operator comfort, which consequently leads to better job efficiency.
Protected bucket cylinder
The Kubota guys know that the bucket cylinder is one of the most damaged components of excavators and they made serious adjustments to fix this problem. They made sure that the bucket cylinder hoses on the arm are well protected against potential damages that may develop when in operation. This is done in such a way that visibility is not compromised.
