How to Operate a Bobcat Mini Excavator Like a Pro October 15 2015, 4 Comments
Experience and the right attachment
A lot of guys in the equipment business claim to be an "expert operator" and the common consensus is that they do not need a Thumb Attachment to perform there job with ease and that adding one means your not very good at what you do. That just isn't the case.
If you are going to screw in a screw you would use a screw driver, not a hammer. So why not add the right attachment to your Excavator like the one from www.MiniExcavatorThumbs.com and make life easy on yourself?
Thats exactly how this operator above was able to perform this fun trick. Pay close attention to how he makes operating this Bobcat Mini Excavator Look so easy.
Three Steps to operating your Excavator like a Pro
Step 1: Add a thumb attachment to your Mini Excavator
Step 2: Turn your throttle down and position your bucket slowly
Step 3: Slowly release the hydraulic pressure.
Its that simple and you can use those three steps to help you operate your Mini on any job with expert precision. If you really want to get good at operating it wouldn't be a bad idea to set up some beer bottles and practice this cool trick until your an expert yourself. After all practice makes perfect.
Feel free to send us posts of your cool excavator tricks.

That is amazing how precisely you can use the excavator! I am starting to get trained how to use equipment like this and it is hard to get the hang of it. I like your tips on how to become a pro at the excavator. This gives me some things to look into. Thanks for the info! http://www.erbobcat.com.au

I think it would be smart to know how to operate a mini excavator especially if you are going to operate the machine yourself. I like the 3 step process you posted about. I think people try and move the bucket really fast and it ruins the machine. http://www.miniexcavatorperth.com.au

The Bobcat 331 is a very popular machine with our customers. It normally requires a 27" thumb attachment. The 27" Fully Hydraulic style thumb is $685.00 with FREE Shipping. I have also emailed you this quote.
