430 Compact Excavator

430

A Zero House Swing (ZHS) compact excavator from Bobcat offers the most unrestricted rotation in the industry for improved operation when working in tight quarters. Backfill, grade and doze material at twice the speed of other excavators with the exclusive hydrostatic FastTrack drive system. Find and reach daily checkpoints with panoramic serviceability, even in a ZHS configuration.

The ZHS allows both the front and rear of the excavator to stay within the excavator's width. The FastTrack drive system allows the 430 excavator to travel at nearly twice the speed of the nearest competitor. The longer dipper stick on the 430 reaches farther from one spot to do more work without repositioning the machine. The extra reach, combined with a higher dump height, also makes loading trucks faster and easier. The 430 excavator is available Long Arm and Extendable Arm models.
