Excluding shaft sinking applications I have seen Hitachi & Kobelco to 12/13 tonnes fitted with extending dippers.

Also Bobcat, Kubota and Neuson mini excavators with extendable dippers.

Was there any addition to the counterweight on this machine?
Must have been a bit of a nodder at full extension if not.

Traditionaly HEX's are more mavouverable than the back hoes and therefore dont require the additional reach...

Well, thats what i was always told at any rate....

With the long carriage and no QH and a meter scoop it wasn't to bad.
