Durability and efficiency with DEVELON's standard rotating piping

The standard application of rotating piping in DEVELON’s mini excavators represents an advancement in design that enhances machine performance and durability.

This feature allows the hydraulic pipes to rotate with the machine, reducing the strain and potential damage to the hydraulic system during operation. It significantly decreases the risk of leaks or breaks in the hydraulic piping, reducing maintenance needs and prolonging the lifespan of the machinery.

By incorporating rotating piping as a standard feature, DEVELON ensures that their mini excavators are more reliable and cost-effective, leading to less downtime and a more efficient workflow. In the long run, this feature can contribute to significant savings in repair and maintenance costs.

DEVELON's boom swing function expands operational flexibility

The boom swing function in DEVELON’s mini excavators provides a valuable advantage when working in extremely narrow areas.

This feature allows the operator to swing the boom to the side, enabling them to access and work in tight spaces that would otherwise be challenging or impossible to reach.

By utilizing the boom swing function, you can maneuver the excavator effectively and precisely, even when confronted with obstacles such as walls, structures, or other machinery.
