The New Generation of Bobcat Compact Excavators

The new Bobcat® compact excavators (also known as mini excavators) combine proven quality with new standards for performance and production. Known as the M-Series, the new compact excavators are reengineered to deliver greater strength in a lighter machine. Throughout each model, you’ll find enhancements that save precious time, save labor, make you more comfortable, and provide peace of mind.


Backed by industry-leading cycle times, M-Series compact excavators provide improved digging performance in a lighter machine. The advanced hydraulic system provides more usable power, consistent and smooth operation, and predictable results every time. Some new features include auto shift travel, auto idle, and fingertip controls.

See why the M-Series models are the best-performing Bobcat compact excavators we’ve ever built.


Bobcat knows how to keep you comfortable. With reduced noise levels, improved climate control and convenient storage, M-Series models are built for all-day operation. For precise throttle adjustments, use the new easy-to-use rotary knob.
