In the market to buy a mini digger but feel overwhelmed by choice? Worry not, as we’re about to make the decision much easier for you. By the end of this blog, you’ll know exactly why you should choose to buy a Komatsu PC26 MR-3.


Choosing to buy a mini digger can be a great idea for many reasons. Whether you’re in the construction industry and need to expand your fleet to include more versatile machinery. Or if you’re looking to invest in a machine to help with your home and garden renovations. Thanks to their compact size and light weight, mini diggers are ideal for use on a wide variety of sites. You’ll also find it’s more cost-effective to buy a mini digger opposed to hiring. Especially if you’re looking for a machine to use for multiple jobs or are considering hiring a larger excavator for something you can achieve with a smaller one. When you buy your own machinery, you also have the bonus of being able to customise it any way you want to make it suitable for the task at hand.

Here they are. Just some of the reasons why you’ll be rushing to buy a Komatsu PC26 MR-3:

Compact & Lightweight

If you’re looking to buy a mini digger, you’re likely to be looking for a small machine that doesn’t take up much space. The PC26 MR-3 is exactly that. Weighing in at under 3000kg, this machine is incredibly lightweight. Making it easier and more cost effective to transport from site to site. This model also features a short-tail design which makes it great for use on more compact construction sites with limited space to manoeuvre. 

Powerful & Sturdy

Don’t be put off when you look to buy a mini digger thinking it won’t achieve much, as this machine definitely proves otherwise. The short-tail design of the PC26 MR-3 helps to deliver optimal power and digging speed. Along with the 15.7 kW engine, this small machine is mightier than its size. Superior stability and rubber tracks, which ensure safe travel over a variety of terrain, also prove this model to be as sturdy as they come.

Reliable & Comfortable

The Komatsu PC26 MR-3 has an X-frame which gives maximum stress resistance. Whilst also ensuring optimal stress distribution. This shape makes the PC26 much more rigid than other similar machines, really increasing its reliability. A tilting cab also makes completing maintenance jobs much quicker and easier. We think it’s safe to say Komatsu has also worked hard to make this mini digger as comfortable as possible. Providing the PC26 with a spacious interior, including a well cushioned seat and proper support for the operator.
