Quelle configuration choisir?

La configuration 6,5cv est conçue pour une utilisation légère tel que du jardinage ou des petits travaux d'excavation ne nécessitant pas plus que 3-4h par jour sans nécessiter d'utiliser régulièrement 100% des capacités de l'excavatrice. 

La configuration 9,5cv possède une couronne d'orientation professionnelle, elle est donc plus résistante et peut supporter des travaux plus intensifs que la 6,5cv, tout en restant dans une utilisation pour particulier à semi-professionnel. Le moteur étant plus puissant, elle peut être utilisée pour de plus grande période de temps avec une utilisation normale (7-8h par jour).

La configuration 14cv diffère de la 9,5cv par la présence d'une 3e pompe de 6cc (7L/min), d'un 3e distributeur hydraulique positionné en arrière de la tourelle ainsi qu'un radiateur d'huile. Ceci permet à cette version d'utiliser des outils non utilisable avec les autres configurations, tel qu'un taille haie ou un débroussailleur.
