How much fuel does a mini excavator hold?
Keeping this in view, how much fuel does a mini excavator use per hour?
This, combined with the fact that as a secondary machine a compact excavator can go years with only minor wear-part replacement, means that you get good value for your money over a long period of time. Fuel use on Bobcat's E35 averages 1.2 gallons per hour, a 20-percent increase in efficiency over the E331 it replaces.
In this manner, how much fuel does an excavator use?
It all depends on the excavator. A cat 330 will use between 10 and 14 gallons per hour. And an Hitachi 350 or Komatsu 300 will use between 5 and 8 gallons per hour.
A Caterpillar D6 dozer is said to burn between 3.5 gal. (13.3 L) and 6.5 gal. (24.7 L) of diesel an hour when operating under moderate conditions. Fuel consumption of larger dozers like the D11 can be five times that much.
