Bobcat Excavator Depth Check

Bobcat has unveiled its new Depth Check system for its compact excavators – a grade control system. The system is available for use with Bobcat’s E32, E32i, E35, E35i, E42, E45, E50 and E55 models, with either standard or long-arm iterations.

The Depth Check system is a kit that utilizes three sensors – one on the trenching or grading bucket, one on the arm and one on the boom – that are connected to the deluxe instrument panel inside the cab to track the precise location of the bucket teeth as the bucket, boom and arm move. The system can be calibrated to a specific machine as well as its corresponding attachments – up to five buckets – using the excavator’s boom and arm length, as well as a bucket tooth radius.

Bobcat E20 Excavator Action

Bobcat has introduced its new 13.9-horsepower Zero Tail Swing (ZTS) E20 compact excavator, which Bobcat says in designed to handle the toughest jobs in confined spaces.

The Tier-4 compliant E20 replaces the 324 excavator model and features an automatic slew brake. Available as options are auto-shift drive and a fingertip auxiliary boom swing control. It has a maximum reach of 14 feet, dig depth of 8 feet 6 inches and dump height of 8 feet 8 inches. With the E20 the rear of the house stays within the width of the tracks through full rotation, allowing operators to work flush against a structure to help minimize damaging nearby objects.

2014 Bobcat E55 Excavator

Bobcat has released four new Tier 4 excavators – the E42, E45, E50 and E55 – which include a non-DPF (diesel particulate filter) engine solution. The machines feature a new forward-mount instrumentation system.

According to Bobcat, the Tier 4 Bobcat non-DPF solution was achieved by designing an ultra-low particulate combustion (ULPC) engine. The ULPC is accomplished through a specially designed engine combustion chamber that significantly reduces the amounts of particulate matter created during combustion.

Bobcat E63 Excavator

Bobcat has unveiled its new E63 Compact Tail Swing excavator, featuring improvements in joystick controls, lift capacity, arm and bucket forces, and drive performance.

Replacing the E60, the E63 becomes the second-largest machine in the company’s compact excavator family. The 6.3-metric-ton excavator features a number of operator conveniences including a blade float, multi-function joysticks, color instrumentation panel and an auto-shift drive system.

At an operating weight of 13,779 pounds, the E63 provides 59.4 horsepower, an increase of 13.5 percent. Its diesel engine is also Tier 4 compliant. The diesel engine features a high-pressure common-rail fuel injection system, a diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC) and a diesel particulate filter (DPF).
