Excavator comes in numerous sizes depending on bucket size, length of boom, length of arm, and operation speed. Performance of excavator can be measured from the production cycle. Production cycle is the time that an excavator took to load the bucket from source, swing, dump, return back and then dig again. Therefore, faster the operation speed, the faster will be the one complete cycle and hence production cycle will increase.
Attached to the end of the boom is the stick (or dipper arm). The stick provides the digging force needed to pull the bucket through the ground. The stick length is optional depending whether reach (longer stick) or break-out power (shorter stick) is required.
Before the 1990s, all excavators had a long or conventional counterweight that hung off the rear of the machine to provide more digging force and lifting capacity. This became a nuisance when working in confined areas. In 1993 Yanmar launched the worldás first Zero Tail Swing excavator, which allows the counterweight to stay inside the width of the tracks as it slews, thus being safer and more user friendly when used in a confined space. This type of machine is now widely used throughout the world.
