Maintenance is necessary, and Bobcat® compact (mini) excavators are designed to make it easy. A wide opening gives you more space to work, while a smart layout gives you access to critical components. When maintenance is faster and more convenient, you’re more likely to perform it as scheduled.
Access engine and pump package, valve bank, cooling system and plumbing using the swing-open tailgate and side access hood. Filters, fluid checks, air cleaner, battery and other maintenance points are simple to access.
When hydraulic fluids move easier, you’ll have more available hydraulic horsepower. That’s why Bobcat® compact excavators have fewer 90-degree fittings, resulting in more efficient hydraulic fluid transfer and better utilization of engine horsepower.
There’s a huge difference between published specs and real-world testing. Bobcat Advantage® puts the industry’s top compact equipment brands in tough challenges to show you the differences. Objective tests and competitive comparisons measure up Bobcat®, Caterpillar®, John Deere®, and Kubota® machines.
