Your work never gets easier. That’s why we continue to improve, to meet the increasing demands of today’s jobsites. Versatile Bobcat® compact excavators – including R-Series and R2-Series models – offer a long list of enhanced features designed to match your growing expertise. Get more usable power, advanced hydraulics and improved lift capacities for an essential boost in both precision and productivity. A focus on comfort with an improved ride, better visibility and upgraded display options helps you stay focused on long work days. Plus, versatility is built in so you can do more and quickly adapt to manage multiple tasks or expand your business.
To take on more complex and varied jobs, a high-performing excavator is a must. R-Series and R2-Series compact excavators are up for the challenge. R2-Series machines are well-balanced to improve lift capacity and increase operator confidence, giving you a noticeable boost in precision and productivity. They also include a redesigned, more efficient Bobcat engine that delivers the performance you need while simplifying – even reducing – routine maintenance. Select R-Series and R2-Series models offer a dual-flange roller system for greater confidence digging over the side of the machine as well as greater slewing ability. Improved joysticks respond easily with less effort from you, plus you’ll get even more control with select R2-Series models that feature an optimized hydraulic control valve that offers improved metering, finite movement and controllability. As jobs get more challenging, Bobcat compact excavators help you push to the next level.
Being able to adapt and manage a variety of tasks with one machine is a requirement on today’s varied jobsites. R2-Series excavators offer more versatility so you can easily adapt to numerous jobs, expand your business or minimize the need for subcontractors. Select models offer arm-mounted auxiliary hydraulics that are easier to reach and attach, and optional hydraulic clamp functionality to run other attachments – without disconnecting the clamp. An integrated lift eye is standard on R2-Series models, offering a convenient method for handling objects or moving items in and out of a trench. Add the Bobcat depth check system to accurately measure depth and grade, and eliminate over-digging. Like all Bobcat compact excavators, you can choose from a variety of attachments and use your machine to complete more tasks than ever.
Long days on busy jobsites require a focus on comfort, and R-Series excavators are built with operator productivity in mind. The dual-flange roller and track system offer a smoother, more comfortable ride while the automatic heat and air conditioning system keeps the temperature steady inside the cab without the need for adjustments. Tall, wide windows provide more surface area for excellent visibility. Along with the refinements of the R-Series cab, these excavators offer several display options, including an optional touch screen display for R2-Series models that provides phone and device connectivity as well as durable, responsive touch controls. When you need the endurance to power through the most demanding jobs, Bobcat compact excavators are designed to keep you working all day in comfort.
