Real-world mini excavator prices from BuyerZone buyers

We regularly survey BuyerZone users to ask how their purchases went. We've used their responses to provide a sampling of actual prices businesses paid for mini excavators.

New or used, the size of the excavator you choose will have a huge impact on the price. Quotes below are arranged by horsepower (HP), which usually (but not always) correlates to maximum dig depth.

When comparing prices of used machines quoted below, keep in mind that users may have different explanations of what "good condition" means, and some don't specify condition at all. Buying any heavy equipment used can save you quite a bit of money, but requires that you have qualified maintenance staff, a good warranty, or another contingency plan in place.
