Vanilla Excavators mod for Minecraft 1.16.2/1.15.2, which adds a new tool to Minecraft called “Excavator”. The excavator is very similar to a shovel, it is used for digging earth, sand, and so on. However, the excavator is more special as it can dig at once a 3 × 3 square! With a normal shovel, you can only dig 1 block at a time, but the excavator allows you to dig a 3 × 3 square, that is, 9 blocks at a time!
What else is interesting?
The mod has 13 types of excavators, divided into 2 categories: regular excavator and additional excavators.
Vanilla Excavator is a vanilla style excavator. This is that they are made from common materials such as wood, stone, iron, gold, and diamond.
Additional excavators are excavators made from various materials such as obsidian, lapis, slime, dragon head, and so on.
If you only want to dig one block with an excavator instead of a 3×3, you only need to hold Shift while digging.
You can fully harden and repair your hammer just like a normal tool.
Also, if you have the “Nether Things” mod installed with this mod, then you can also create 3 new types of excavators!
