You might think most parts you put into your compact excavator are exactly the same, but there’s a difference between Genuine Bobcat Parts and other inferior brands. Engineering and sourcing teams work together to make sure parts deliver maximum performance when paired with Bobcat compact excavators. For example, fluids and filters meet or exceed the minimal requirements of our engines, air and hydraulic components. This reduces the risk of unnecessary wear. Put simply, they’re tough, reliable and proven to perform.
Remanufactured parts and components provide just-like-new performance and reliability at a lower cost – while helping the environment. Remanufacturing returns a product to the same condition as when it was manufactured – or sometimes better in terms of durability, lifespan and performance. Plus, they’re readily available at your dealership. Easily exchange worn out machine parts with remanufactured ones. Just bring them to your local dealer and use their value toward remanufactured replacements.
Maintenance at regular intervals extends the life of your compact excavator. Protect your investment by learning how to perform regular maintenance yourself, including greasing your loader, replacing a drive belt and checking your compact excavator tension. Start by reviewing the service schedule for your model of compact excavator.

Engines in compact excavators are better than ever, however in order to run smoothly, they need high-quality diesel fuel. This requires proper bulk fuel storage solutions, regular replacement of fuel filters, periodically testing and analyzing your fuel and using additives during cold weather operation.
Diesel engines for compact equipment run cleaner than ever before. However, this makes them highly-susceptible to contamination. To keep your machine running smoothly, using high-quality fuel, replace your fuel filters regularly, and take note of other fuel best practices.
Diesel fuel additives can help when fuel quality is suspect and temperatures turn cold. While not every diesel fuel additive provides the same level of performance and value, high-quality additives provide many benefits during cold weather operation.
When storing bulk diesel fuel, several steps must be taken to meet the fuel cleanliness requirements for your Tier 4 equipment. These steps include evaluating your storage solution, changing your bypass filter at least twice a year, periodically testing and analyzing your fuel and establish a record keeping system.
