Top 5 Mini Excavators for Rent or Sale

Excavators have a wide variety of uses and come in an array of sizes. The smaller one's are called mini excavators or compact excavators and are capable of doing everything their big brothers can, albeit on a smaller scale. Whether you're digging trenches or holes, demolition, heavy lifting, dredging, or general grading, mini excavators get the job done. Period.

Kim and Mark Shelley sent in this picture the other day.  They were trying to take a picture of a wrecked sailboat but got "photobombed" by our Husqvarna Club Car!  

Weeks Marine Inc. has been working on pumping sand back onto the beach after the wreckage caused by
 Hurricane Sandy and they have been using Durante Rentals equipment to do it!

And this is what it currently looks like
