Default Excavator operation tips and tricks

I have been excavator shopping for years. First looking and dreaming, getting to know price points as no way I could afford the size I hoped to buy. I finally pulled the trigger and bought a Kubota KX033-4 (formerly Kubota KX91 model). It's a 2017 with 530 hours. Well now it has 532 hours as I just spent a couple hours getting to know the machine.

I realize now I sure could use some tips from experienced operators. Good to know stuff that is not so obvious. So far I've dug my first small hole. Trickier than I thought. I filled in a fire pit that is no longer used due to where the shed was built and I've used the blade to level out the gravel in front of the new shed. I found out the rubber tracks do not do so well in mud. I about got stuck. I finally got the right bucket move to help pull me up the hill out of the mud. Again, it was tricky and still not sure I did it the best possible way.

It is fun to operate. I want to be as safe as possible and learn to do things the right way so any pointers on best practices and proper operation would sure be appreciated.
