Bobcat to preview 1.2 tonne mini excavators

13 November 2014

Bobcat will use the 2015 Executive Hire Show being held in Coventry, UK, on February 11 and 12, 2015, to show its new 1.2 tonne mini-excavator range publically for the first time. Three models will make up the range, the E17, E19 and E20 that can be transported on trailers up to 2,000 kg (4,400 lb). The new machines will feature an expanding undercarriage, automatic slew brakes and what the company says is advanced diagnostics and instrumentation, among other features.

According to Bobcat, these new high performance excavators provide an unmatched combination of class-leading breakout forces, working range, smoothness, hydraulic output and fast cycle times.

The unique hydraulic systems on the new E17, E19 and E20 models make the best possible use of the engine power on the excavators, says Bobcat. Fast cycle times, combined with smooth control of breakout forces provide maximum productivity. Boom and arm cylinder cushioning, another unique feature in this class of excavator, also increases overall smoothness.
