Why The Kubota K008 Mini-Excavator Is a Boss

Posted by: Samuel Hirshfield on April 22, 2013


If you don’t know about the Kubota K008 mini-excavator, it’s time to get educated. Let’s start with the basics. 

Specs Overview. The Kubota K008 mini-excavator is particularly well suited for projects where access is tight or the work area is limited. It’s optimally sized for the landscaper, contractor or pro DIYer with big tasks in small working area.  With it’s robust 2200 lbs of breakout force, max reach of 9’5 ft, digging depth of 5’8 ft and dump height of 6’8, the K008 is ready to tackle whatever you can throw at it. Check out the K008 Spec Sheet for a full breakdown on how to harness the power of the Kubota Mini-Excavator.

Because it is so compact, the mini-excavator is capable of more precise tasks where a regular commercial excavator fails to execute and a shovel is too labor intensive. Also, it can fit through a standard gate.  Perfect for trenching, footers, planting trees, ponds and general excavation work, the K008 is the perfect assimilation of compact size and big power.  Popular with plumbers, landscapers, electricians, utility contractors, property management and builder / remodelers, the K008 is one of the most popular products offered by Compact Power Equipment Rental.  

Projects. Trenching? Irrigation? Plumbing? Electrical? Landscaping? Done. Goodbye soggy yard and squishy sod! Planting? Tree installation? It can do that too, in 0.1% of the time it would take you with a shovel. Dreaming of a water feature? You can do it all yourself! The mini-excavator equips the weekend warrior with the ability to take big time tasks from a dream to done. Because you can rent the equipment yourself, for a very fair price, projects costs are miniscule in comparison to the cost of hiring out the job to someone who owns the equipment. Did we mention it comes on a trailer at no extra charge?  Try and get that kind of service from your typical rental facility. 

The Kubota K008 from Compact Power Equipment Rental is available for half day, daily, weekly or monthly rentals.  So stop dreaming and get it done.  In the words of our partner, The Home Depot, “More Saving. More Doing”.
