Check out our newest addition to the family of productive excavators—the 30G

The 30G has a max dig depth of 9 feet 2 inches and weighs about 7000 lbs. It is easy to transport and powerful too. It has an optional cab with heat and air-conditioning for ultimate operator comfort, a new seat with adjustable wrist rests for daylong comfort, and a suspension seat is standard. Low-effort pilot controls deliver exceptionally smooth, predicable, combined-function performance that lives up to our reputation with excavation professionals. A manual quick coupler is standard on all of our compact excavators (17G – 60G), so there are no pin-on hassles ever. The fold-able travel pedals are positioned to provide efficient operation by maximizing foot room. Extended fluid and lubrication intervals help keep maintenance and expenses at a minimum as well.
