IHI With a 12-model product line, IHI offers a wide range of mini-excavators, providing digging depths from 5 feet 2 inches up to 14 feet 1 inch, and bucket forces from 2,160 to 14,730 pounds. IHI offers smaller units to appeal to the utility contractor and the homeowner with a yard project. Even with their compact designs, these excavators have all the features of a larger mini-excavator. The larger IHI units are correspondingly designed to meet the deeper digging depth and power requests of the general contractor.
