Disadvantages: Can also be problematic due to tail wobble when used in tight areas.

General excavator – Large Excavators

Large excavators with a working weight above 50ton are heavy duty machines for projects that require a lot of power and greater towing capacity.​​​ They are commonly used on commercial construction sites and large demolition projects such as shopping malls and large buildings as well as in large mining operations

Advantages: can meet the needs of large buildings,

Disadvantages: relatively bulky, difficult to transport, expensive.
