Cat mini excavators weigh between 1 and 10 metric tons. These machines combine fuel economy and a compact size to fit your job site. They are easy to transport and can maneuver in tight spaces for smaller tasks that may not require the horsepower of larger machines. 

Mini excavators typically have zero or near-zero tail swing, so they navigate obstacles with ease. They are also light on finished surfaces like sidewalks to prevent significant wear and tear. Operators commonly use these machines for tasks like digging holes or trenches in landscaping. 

These excavators are an excellent alternative to standard size equipment when a task is too small for a full-size model but too time-consuming or difficult to perform by hand. 


Cat small excavators weigh between 11 and 18 tons. This size of machine is ideal for hard-to-reach spaces that require a substantial amount of horsepower. 

These models are known for fuel efficiency and advanced hydraulic systems that let you complete big jobs at a lower cost per hour. The small excavators often have a larger tail size than the mini version, but they can still perform on somewhat congested job sites. 

Small excavators are common in several industries, including sewer repairs, indoor work, foundational repair and water line installs. In many regions, it is also possible to haul the small size excavator behind a Class 1 or Class 2 truck without the need for a commercial driver's license. 


Cat medium excavators weigh between 20 and 35 tons. These machines handle many standard jobs in construction, utilities and landscaping. There are several options for tail design, with flexibility on the radius for maneuverability. 

Medium excavators are known for their versatility, as they can use many different types of attachments to perform various tasks. A Cat excavator can dig with a bucket attachment, drill with an auger and much more. 


Cat large excavators weigh between 36 and 90 tons. These machines are legendary powerhouses built to tackle the toughest jobs. The excavators do not typically come with low- or zero-radius tails due to their immense size and power. 

Operators typically use large excavators for bulk earthmoving because of their speed and efficiency. Common applications include digging foundations for massive complexes like apartments or malls or moving large-scale volumes of soil. 

No matter the size of the job, you can trust Cat large excavators to get the big projects done.
