337 Compact Excavator


The heavy-duty 337 combines exceptional digging depths and a long reach in a compact frame that routinely outworks conventional excavating machines. For tasks that require even more reach, a long-arm model is available with 20 feet of reach to reduce machine repositioning. This rugged, hard-working machine not only out-performs any other excavator in its class, but is more productive than a loader backhoe when working in limited access areas.

It offers easy-to-operate joysticks, a convenient ISO/Standard control pattern selection valve and an operator-friendly cab, complete with optional heating and air conditioning for comfortable, year-round work. It takes the 337 to the next level with the ability to dig deeper and reach farther and higher for more productivity. A wide choice of Bobcat attachments adds to its versatility, while available keyless start protects against theft. The 337 excavator is also available in a Long Arm model.
