Mini Excavator Jansen MB-1500




Our MB-1500 Mini Excavator is a compact multi-functional machine. It’s small, powerful and versatile. It uses a powerful 14hp Kohler engine to power the high-performance hydraulic system.

This is a complete set! An order includes the 8 in, 12 in, and 24 in buckets, plus a ripper for breaking up soil and a grapple for lifting rocks or logs. The extremely practical quick-change system allows you to quickly change attachments.


And now for a limited time, we will be adding the auger head HBG-200 for this machine to this package with one auger of your choice. You can pick the 6“, 9“, 12” or 15

Act fast because this is while supplies last.


The gear and pivot joint allows a 360° swivel radius.

The dredging depth of 4.75ft and ejection height of 5ft make this machine your perfect tool for home projects or for your business. The low surface pressure and versatility ensure minimal damage to the soil, which is particularly important when working in gardens.

A recurring question: Can the bucket also be reversed so the opening is at the front? Yes, you can. Simply turn the quick-change adapter and you can fit the buckets the other way around!

The MB-1500 mini excavator comes with four-way control lever steering. As shown in the pictures, it has 2 joystick levers for operating the excavator arm and the scoop, and 2 control arms for the chain drive and the dozer blade. You can assign the functions yourself based on how the hydraulic lines are connected.

  1. Martin Castaneda

    I’m impressed, the MB-1500 has been a great excavator. We dug the new irrigation trenches for my whole property and it help me move my whole wood pile. I am so happy I went with the Jansen USA model, This machine is gentle on my landscaping but still tears of the ground where I need it to. I had one little issues on delivery but the service technician was able to get it sorted out over the phone. The entire buying experience has been great.

    Buy the MB-1500. I’ve had it for five years now and it’s been great. Every time I’ve needed parts they’ve come within a week or so. The hydraulic system is strong. I’ve been able to get so much done with this machine, it has saved me a ton of money in the long run and I would absolutely recommend it. I’ve even loaned it out to some of my neighbors who have nothing but good things to say as well. I bought the auger for it a year or so after I bought the machine and have completely redone my fence line with it. Overall it’s durable, capable, and a good price what more can you ask for.

  3. Nick Gawain

    I’ll tell you what. I was skeptical buying such a big machine online just with talking to the sales people on the phone but this is a great machine it is well built and very useful. It is small enough that I can get it into all sorts of places on my property that my other machines can’t go. The collar motor has been perfect I have had no issues with the machine at all. Jansen’s financing options are not fantastic. But if you have the money this is the machine that I would recommend.
