With Bobcat® compact excavators, you can stay in the field longer, trust your machine in harsh conditions and protect your investment for a greater resale.

Electronic Protection

Quality electrical systems are essential for any machine that works in harsh conditions. Bobcat electronics meet or exceed military IP67 requirements for sealing, moisture, shock and vibration. All the controls and electrical systems are engineered with more watertight, corrosion-resistant connectors than other manufacturers. These extra steps ensure a simple connector issue won’t slow you down on the job.

Automatic Glow Plugs

Bobcat uses automatic glow plugs to warm the fuel mixture within the engine when it is started at a cooler temperature. This leads to easier starts and longer life for the engine and starter.

Battery-Run-Down Protection

Battery run-down protection prevents battery discharge due to vandalism or an operator who forgets to turn off lights. The lighting circuit automatically shuts down to prevent accidental battery discharge.
