  • An improved cooling system provides better performance, quieter operation and easier serviceability while protecting engine component life. Side-by-side heat exchangers control the engine compartment temperature more efficiently. Cleanout is easier, as there is no need to separate coolers to clean debris.

  • Bobcat® compact excavators are designed to prevent problems before they occur. Electronics meet or exceed military requirements for sealing, moisture, shock and vibration. Automatic glow plugs deliver easier starts and longer starter life, while battery run-down protection protects against vandals or forgetful operators.

  • When you step inside the redesigned cab of a R-Series compact (mini) excavator, you’ll find more space everywhere you look. It provides maximum headroom and legroom for dependable comfort all day long. Additionally, the suspension seat is wider and floorspace has been increased by 29 percent when compared to previous generations. Even tall operators will be comfortable with plenty of headroom.

  • Bobcat compact excavators have an extendable-arm option for greater reach. When needed, the arm can be hydraulically extended up to 30 in., and then retracted to its standard position for maximum arm force and lift performance.

  • Many Bobcat® compact excavators are equipped with selectable auxiliary hydraulics. Three flow rates help you optimize the response of hydraulic attachments such as PowerTilt® and Hydra-Tilt™ swing accessories, clamps, grapples, hydraulic breakers and auger attachments.

  • Your time should be used completing your work instead of gaining access to components. With Bobcat® compact excavators, it's easy to make maintenance part of your routine. Perform preventative maintenance with industry-leading service access and simple checkpoints. You'll complete essential maintenance as scheduled and reduce your operating costs.
