R2-Series 5–6T Mini Excavators

Meet the all-new fully Stage V compliant E50z, E55z and E60

Bobcat's Mini Excavators are built around the operator and provide the answers to all questions posed by your business by successfully blending high performance with smooth, intuitive controls and first-class comfort.

Introducing the R2-Series Mini Excavators


We have simplified our portfolio in the 4–6t category to 2 zero tail and one conventional swing machines to make it easier for our customers. New model numbers better reflect actual machine weight and performance. As with the other Bobcat models, we have introduced the ‘z’ extension to the model name, which signifies the zero-house swing feature, making it is easier to identify a machine type based on its name.
