    The Site location, soil structure, and land geography

    Safety and security and efficiency are some of the important things you must consider when choosing a digger. Much as the condition of the digger matters, the site also plays a crucial role.

In this situation, a crawler skid digger is optimal.

    The soil composition will also affect the type of add-on you make use of. For instance, excavating a site with sticky clay soil can be difficult because the soil has a tendency to stick inside and at the back of the bucket.
