Bobcat has unveiled three new compact excavators as part of its next generation line-up of 1 to 2 t models.

According to the manufacturer, the E17, E19 and E20 provide an unmatched combination of class-leading breakout forces, working range, smoothness of workgroup functions, hydraulic output and fast cycle times.

The new models are towable on trailers for up to 2000 kg, with manoeuvrability further enhanced by new tie-down points.

Standard feature include an expandable undercarriage, automatic slew brake and advanced diagnostics and instrumentation.

The new E20 2 tonne model is a Zero Housing Swing (ZHS) excavator, which means that despite featuring a full-sized cab, it still enhances Zero Tail Swing (ZTS) functionality by further protecting the front upper structure corners turning within the swing circle.
