  1. Bucket – The CD11 comes with one bucket and another two optional buckets. The first is 12 inches wide. The second is a trenching bucket which is only 6 inches wide and is ideal for installing cables or sprinkler systems. The 20 inch grading bucket can be used to clean up.

  1. Access Wheels – The CD11 access wheels pin onto the CANDIG Mini Excavator in seconds, allowing it to become 28 inches wide. They are sturdy, steel wheels which allow you to push the excavator by hand or use the hydraulic power to move it through those tight spots.

  1. Ripper – The ripper is attached to the bottom of the trenching bucket and allows your CANDIG Mini Excavator to dig through frozen or tough ground with ease. Since 2006, the ripper has been modified so that it also acts as a root cutter.

  1. Thumb – operates hydraulically, and can pick up heavy loads.

  1. Also available with CD11 are the auger and automatic hydraulic stabilizers.

I rented a CANDIG CD11 unit to excavate about a foot of ground out of my existing basement in downtown Vancouver. I am certainly impressed at how the people from CANDIG delivered the unit, then helped to crawl it into my basement with ease. I highly recommend using one of their diggers when digging in tight spots!
