An excavator's tracks are tough but can be damaged. Clear the area of sharp rocks and debris that could tear or damage the tracks.

Call local utilities and 811 a week before you plan to dig. In advance of an inspection visit, mark any known water or gas lines.

Do's & Don'ts

DO: A mini excavator rental's rubber tracks are tough, but they can be damaged -- and they're very expensive to replace! So prep and clear the work area of any sharp rocks and debris -- broken-up pieces of concrete commonly are a primary culprit -- that could tear or damage the tracks.

DO: Establish a safety radius, and keep any onlookers in your view, check blind spots to the side and behind you.

DON'T: Dig over the side of the machine. Dig only over the front blade. Failure to do so will greatly increase chances of tipping over.

DO: Expand the tracks fully and keep them expanded once you pass through any narrow gates or tight spaces. Only retract the tracks to the narrow setting if you need to get through a gate or tight space.

DO: Keep your bucket low -- reaching up and out can cause tipping at the wrong angle. Whenever possible, lift over the front blade to avoid tipping the mini excavator rental.
