Compact Construction Equipment is a great solution for hard workers ready to shake some earth up. Their narrow sizes, light tread, great visibility and powerful torque offer a whole new world of opportunities for construction workers, homeowners, producers and landscapers alike. 

But, with owning new equipment comes a couple of unknowns. Whether you’re a first-time equipment buyer or an experienced operator, there is always room for questions. That’s where we come into play.

At Belkorp Ag, we want to make sure you’re never left in the dark. It’s important to have accurate information, especially when it comes to investing in new equipment. Here are some answers to common questions we get about Compact Construction Equipment.

Frequently Asked Questions about Compact Construction Equipment

Which Compact Construction Equipment is right for my operation?

The great thing about CCE is that they pretty much accomplish the same range of chores. What will really help you narrow down a choice is what the conditions of your worksite look like. Here’s what you need to know about each piece of equipment.

  • Mini Excavators: As the name suggests, our Mini Excavators thrive where excavation is the number one priority. While they can take on a variety of other jobs, they are prime candidates for digging deep and transporting loads at an extended reach. 

  • Skid Steers: With excellent maneuverability and a wide range of versatile attachments available, our Skid Steers are more popular on residential projects and small-scale jobs. They are pretty lightweight, making them much easier to transport.

  • Compact Track Loaders: These workhorses are great solutions for taking on tough, hilly terrain. With a durable set of tracks, you won’t have to worry about damaging your machine as you work through rough ground conditions. You’ll also find stability to be a key benefit of our Compact Track Loaders. 

  • Wheel Loaders: With traditional steerable wheels, this machine closely resembles driving an automobile. If rear- and side-visibility is a crucial part of your task, our Wheel Loaders offer great visibility and a typically larger, more spacious cab.

What jobs can Compact Construction Equipment handle?

These workhorses can take on just about any job. Construction workers, homeowners, farmers and landscapers all will be able to benefit from their generous power and versatile attachments. Here are a few jobs that our John Deere CCE models won’t back down from.

  • Digging

  • Trenching

  • Loading

  • Excavating

  • Backfilling

  • Mowing

  • Drilling

  • Shredding

  • Plowing

  • Grading

Why should I consider Compact Equipment over standard-sized Construction Equipment?

There are plenty of advantages that separate the Compact Equipment from regular-sized Equipment. Not only are Compact models easier to transport and store, but they also grant a lower risk of ground impaction. Because of its narrow size, Compact Equipment also offers excellent, all-around visibility. This not only increases awareness, but it also protects the worksite. Most of our customers consider their lower prices to be the greatest benefit of all though.
