On the end of the stick is usually a bucket. A wide large capacity (mud) bucket with a straight cutting edge is used for cleanup and levelling or where the material to be dug is soft and teeth are not required. A general purpose (GP) bucket is generally smaller stronger and has hardened side cutters and teeth used to break through hard ground and rocks. Buckets have numerous shapes and sizes for various applications. There are also many other attachments which are available to be attached to the excavator for boring ripping crushing cutting lifting etc. Excavators in Scandinavia often feature a tiltrotator which allows attachments rotate 360 degrees and tilt +/- 45 degrees in order to increase the flexibility and precision of the excavator.
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 worlds first Zero Tail Swing excavator9 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.
