Compact equipment’s big impact on the construction industry – a Hitachi white paper

September 07, 2020

Hitachi compact equipment

Compact construction equipment has huge advantages over larger machinery on a wide range of construction projects – thanks to its ability to fit in small spaces, easy transportation and user-friendly operation. Mini excavators and compact wheel loaders bring numerous benefits on utility, foundation work, landscaping and indoor demolition or construction projects.

They also have considerable potential for making sizeable steps forward in electrification and zero-emission battery-powered equipment. Mini excavators in particular are leading the field in this development, due to the small size of batteries required. Rapid charging times and sufficient operation capacities are vital for their successful adoption in the market.

And due to the fact that smaller models are often used for a few hours per day, unlike their larger cousins, they are ideally suited to the rental industry, and have a substantial role to play in the sharing economy. In fact, they could be available via this kind of business model sooner than expected, as customers are already moving towards the mindset of borrowing and sharing.

To find out more about the big impact of compact construction equipment on the construction market of today and tomorrow, read our white paper or listen to our Onsite podcast.
