Compact equipment specialist Bobcat will show its E10e mini excavator for the first time at the United Kingdom’s Executive Hire Show next month.
Said to be the industry’s first battery driven, zero tail swing mini-excavator in the 1 t class, the machine is suitable for indoor demolition and basement projects as well as other low noise sites such as city centres.
Developed at the Bobcat EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) Innovation Centre in the Czech Republic, the E10e is based on the design of the successful diesel powered E10, which has sold more than 10,000 in the past 10 years.
The new mini excavator has the same zero tail swing profile and identical external dimensions to the standard model, but offers lower noise levels on site and is equipped with auxiilary lines and an efficient oil cooler system for continuous hydraulic operation.
It is also easy to transport as its retractable undercarriage reduces its width to only 710 mm (28 in).
The Executive Hire Show takes place in Coventry, UK, on February 5 and 6.
