How to Operate a Mini Excavator:

Step 1: When you climb into the excavator, make sure to use three points of contact as you lift yourself up and in. Keep in mind that falls are the number one cause of construction-related fatalities.

Step 2: Put your seatbelt on.

Step 3: Close the door.

Step 4: Start the machine by turning the key in the ignition.

Step 5: Look at the machine's display to see if there are any warning lights or other indicators. Check the fuel levels.

Step 6: Take safety lock off. 

Step 7: Use the joystick located to the right to raise the boom up and down. You can do this by pulling the joystick back to move the boom up and pushing the joystick forward to move the boom down.

Step 8: Use the same joystick to "open" and "close" the bucket. Push the joystick to the right to open the bucket and to the left to close the bucket.

Step 9: Use the joystick to the left to move the excavator's stick. Pushing the joystick forward moves the stick out and pulling it backward moves the stick back.

Step 10: You also use the left joystick to swing the cab to the right and left.

Step 11: To drive the excavator, make sure the blade is up and then use the the pedals on the floor to move the machine forward. Once you've repositioned, lower the blade again to stabilize the machine.
