With more engine horsepower than other brands of the same size, Bobcat® excavators generate more horsepower in the hydraulic system, where it counts. This allows the excavator to sustain flow at higher pressure, which translates into faster cycle times under load. Simply put, they dig stronger and faster. High-efficiency, torque-limiting piston pump hydraulic system matches force to demand, continuously responding to loads and delivering more usable power. The system delivers exceptional metering and smooth control of machine functions. Pound for pound, you’ll get better digging performance than you would from other manufacturers’ machines.
