Bobcat plans compact ‘revolution’
By Steve Ducker15 March 2018
Bobcat says it is aiming to revolutionise the compact excavator market in Europe when it shows a completely new generation of 2 to 4 t machines for the first time at Intermat* in Paris, France, next month.
According to the company, all the new models already meet the upcoming European Stage V engine emission regulations.
The first details to be released are on the new 2 to 3 t E26, E27and E27z models. These have operating weights of 2,560 kg (5,643 lb), 2,610 kg (5,754 lb) and 2,700 kg (5,952 lb) respectively.
A similar change is taking place in the 3 to 4 t range. The new E34 and E35z have been developed to reinforce the Bobcat product offering in this category of compact excavator. The company will release more information on these new machines at Intermat itself.
“This is a very exciting time for everybody in Bobcat involved in developing our new products,” said Jaroslav Fiser, product line director for Bobcat mini-excavators in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
“Our engineers and product experts have worked closely together with our salesforce and selected European dealers to ensure the new products meet the specific requirements of the very demanding customer base in Europe.
“We are very much looking forward to unveiling our new machines at Intermat.”
*Intermat takes place from April 23 to 28 and there will be a showguide in the March-April issue of Demolition & Recycling International.
