Backhoe loaders and mini diggers for all your excavations
The backhoe loader is a terracing machine consisting of a 360 degree steerable hydraulic shovel and a motorized group on crawlers or on tires. On site, excavators are used to extract, load and handle all types of materials. They are classified according to their weight (mini diggers and mini excavators), the capacity and the type of dipper (in retro or abutment), their power and their lifting, digging and penetration power.
How to choose a used excavator ?
Take as close to your needs
Compare the different types of diggers. While wheeled excavators are more mobile, crawler excavators are preferred on fixed sites. Also make sure they are adequately equipped, with accessories for your areas of application.
Double check the working condition of the machine
During the inventory, our technicians provide detailed instructions to help you choose in a transparent way. In case of hesitation, Auctelia also organizes onsite viewing days : you can then inspect the machines by yourself, directly at the seller's.
Buy at the right price, the one you set
By participating in an auction, you buy your construction equipment at the price you have set. This competitive environment is perfectly transparent since it provides the same information and the freedom to determine the price by bidding.
Volvo and Caterpillar crawler excavators
Our most sought-after used models at auction are the Volvo ECR 235 CL excavator and the various Caterpillar track excavators, such as the 323D excavator for intensive use and maximum productivity.
Crawler Excavators are known for their reliability and performance. The crawlers carry the digger over a larger area. The weight of a crawler excavator is better distributed and thus easier to use on muddy ground. On the other hand, on hard ground, skates or small tiles are needed.
Some models of tracked excavators are equipped with telescopic chassis, which can be disassembled for transport. But crawler excavators are rather used on fixed sites, with a reduced distance between the various workplaces.
Kubota, New Holland and Fuchs wheeled excavators
Alongside the used models from Kubota or New Holland, the Terex Fuchs diggers are selling well in our auctions. The MHL 350 Wheel Excavator, for example, is a precision excavator for complex logistics, such as scrap handling.
Wheeled excavators are used for mining, digging and handling on small sites or urban works. More mobile and authorized on public roads, they do not require additional external transport. To ensure their footing, wheeled excavators are equipped with outriggers and a blade is installed on the chassis.
Yanmar and Bobcat mini diggers
We auction used mini diggers under 7 tons and mini excavators from 7 to 12 tons, like the different variants of the mini excavator Yanmar, designed for landscaping or interior renovation work. The models of the Kubota mini excavator or the Hitachi mini excavator, as well as the famous Bobcat mini excavator 442 are also among our best sellers.
Lighter than mini diggers, hydraulic mini excavators are intended for small-scale earthworks and to reach narrow areas with precision. Short radius or conventional radius, they are ultra compact and are particularly manageable.
