Are you a new excavator operator? Or do you have a ton of experience. What are some of the big mistakes you have made?

Excavators (hydraulic) are heavy construction equipment consisting of a boom, dipper (or stick), bucket and cab on a rotating platform known as the “house”. The house sits atop an undercarriage with tracks or wheels. They are a natural progression from the steam shovels and often mistakenly called power shovels.

This video covers the 5 basic mistakes  from new operators like counter weight, squaring up to your tracks, trenching, loading and parking.
