Three new Bobcat compact excavators

Bobcat will present its new 2–4-tonne compact excavators designed to offer new levels of operator comfort, enhanced controllability and smoothness of all working functions. The 2–3-tonne models include the E26, E27z and E27 with operating weights of 2560, 2700 and 2610 kg, respectively. The 3–4-tonne models include the E34 and E35z.

The E26 excavator has its transport weight reduced by around 40kg, increased over-the-side lifting capacity and a new robust workgroup with a cylinder-inside-boom (CIB) feature. The E27z model further enhances the performance characteristics of Bobcat’s current E26 machine. As a zero house swing (ZHS) machine, the E27z offers higher 360 degree stability and a lower weight for easier transportation. With the optional long arm and deluxe cab, the E27z offers the digging output and operator comfort of much larger excavators. The conventional swing E27 model offers 280mm of tail overhang which allows the machine to be operated in confined spaces.
