When looking across the ever-growing excavator market, it can feel a lot like the same ole same ole — but don’t be fooled. Small differences in design can add up to a world of difference in profitability.
Our X-style chassis has robotically welded, single-piece upper and lower plates that are also covered by our Lifetime Frame and Structure Warranty. Heavy-duty guard plates offer protection under the superstructure and X-frame. Some competitors feature an undercarriage with the upper plate split at a key stress point, or a straight plate welded on one side only with no plate belly guard under the hydraulic swivel. And with warranties ranging from 3 to 12 months, maintenance costs could add up quickly.
For added safety and durability, excavators can be ordered with optional FOG (Falling Object Guard) and FOPS (Falling Object Protective Structure) cabs to provide peace-of-mind for working in tough applications. EC220EL models and up can also be fitted with a full length track guard for added protection.
