I operated that little 302.5, with it I trimmed the walls of the shaft you see it being lifted out of. A 325 longreach excavator did the bulk of the work, anywhere the 325 operator couldn't reach, I would dig with the 302.5. It was hard digging, tons of rocks. The 302.5 took a real beating.

good observation, i should have mentioned that the 325 would have never lifted that mini up... it's a longreach with a huge boom and dipper and can't lift ****!
So we walked a 345B over just to lift and lower the mini.
oh yeah and that shaft is over 30 feet deep, with soilder piles and I beam whalers reinforcing it, planked between the soilder piles with 4x6s

That sounds just like the type of job I recently watched. Don't remember all the machines they used... but company on a job adjacent to one I was working was digging a pit to do micro-tunnelling. Used a standard excavator as deep as possible.. then switched to a long reach.. and finally a mini at the bottom of the hole filling the long reach bucket for the final clean up work.
