Powerfab was a brand of Welsh manufactured compact excavators built in the 1980s, before the Japanese Mini excavator boom took off. They were basically a small back actor (Backhoe) on a set of wheels for towing with outriggers for working off. They were powered by a small Honda or Briggs & Stratton type engine. They were manoeuvred by pulling or pushing with the bucket. The operator sat on top of the power pack. They could be towed behind a car with a drawbar attachment. Latter models were tracked machines like the Japanese Micro excavators. Powerfab company folded in the early 1990s.

HistoryEdit

The Powerfab company was based in Ashvale, Tredegar Gwent in Wales. in the 1980s.
