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.

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.
