Unmatched Selection and Features

Made in USA

With the largest selection of compact excavators, Bobcat is the industry’s unmatched leader. Features such as panoramic serviceability, the most cab space in the industry, more engine horsepower, Advanced Hydraulics, Fast-Track™ drive system and In-Track Swing Frame put Bobcat® excavators ahead of the competition. Plus, they are the only compact excavators manufactured in the U.S.A.

Many Choices
Choose a compact excavator that best fits your jobsite needs. Bobcat compact excavators cover a wide range of digging depths—from 5 ft. to nearly 14 ft. And because compact excavators weigh less than larger machines, you can tow them behind a fuel-efficient half-ton to two-ton truck.

In-Track Swing Frame
If you regularly work close toobjects or against walls, consider a Bobcat Zero House Swing (ZHS) orZero Tail Swing (ZTS) compact excavator with the most unrestricted rotation in the industry. And when you are digging in the offset position, the exclusive In-Track Swing Frame keeps the swing casting within the tracks, giving you the ability to dig next to an obstacle with excellent visibility. If accessing backyards through fences is an issue, a conventional swing excavator might be better because it is narrower than an equivalent zero tail swing machine. For the tightest access areas, the Bobcat 316 and 323 feature a hydraulically activated retractable undercarriage.

Bobcat Hydraulic X-Change System

Do More Than Dig
Do more than simply dig with your Bobcat compact excavator. Today there are 16 attachments available. They are designed to save you time and labor. Save even more time with the new Hydraulic X-Change™ attachment mounting system. Retract or extend hydraulic pins with a simple push of a switch, then install the retainer pins before operating. Your operators are more likely to use the proper attachment for the job when attachment changes are simple. Fingertip control of auxiliary hydraulics allows you to manage attachment speeds with precision for improved productivity.

Panoramic Serviceability
Daily maintenance is critical with any piece of equipment. No one makes it easier to perform routine maintenance checks than Bobcat—all without sacrificing cab space. Gain access to filters, fluid and other daily maintenance checkpoints with a swing-open tailgate and side access hood.
