Do I need to insure my equipment, and how can this be done without the serial number or certificate?
For a mini-tractor, you need at least third-party liability insurance.
To insure your equipment, the insurance company will only need the name and description of the mini excavator. Insurance policies do not cover damage which occurs when the equipment is not used in compliance with the terms and conditions. The manufacturer’s insurance policy does not cover damage occurred as a result of your own personal use of the equipment.
Our machines are not approved to be driven on the road. You will need a vehicle registration document with a French certificate of conformity from an association such as DEKRA.
The machines need to be lubricated pretty much every time they are used. You also need to check the oil levels regularly. It is important to make sure screws and pins are correctly tightened so that parts of the machine do not fall off or get damaged.
Please refer to the user manual for your machine.

If the engine stalls, your security valve is not correctly adjusted. Refer to the product assembly manual and follow the instructions.
The machines purge themselves automatically. You just need to start the engine and use the controls, after going back and forth 2 or 3 times, the circuit has automatically filled itself up and you can check the levels again. It is possible that a small amount of oil is dripping from the cap, this is not a problem. Once the level is normalised, this will stop.
The machines built are covered by the CE directive (2006/42/CE) and are provided with a certificate and CE plate (from 28/02/17).
Make sure you check the following:
-engine oil/multiplier (thermal - 15W40/multiplier - 15W40 or transmission)
-the hydraulic oil level (hydraulic oil HV 46)
-lubrication of pins
-check connectors and screws are correctly tightened
