Compact excavators take advantage of distinct features to deliver maneuverability, power, lift capacity, versatility and reach.
• 360-degree rotation and independent boom swing
Provides greater visibility, simple repositioning and enhanced spoil placement.
• Reduced machine width
A retractable undercarriage — available on select models — allows you to access small openings and fence gates by temporarily reducing machine width. Once on the jobsite, extend tracks to optimize digging power and stability.
• Arm options
Standard power arm: Provides the best balance of machine weight, digging depth and track power.
Long arm: Offers more reach and dump height to reduce repositioning and increase productivity. Especially efficient for footing work, utility excavation and ditch cleaning.
Extendable arm: Provides both power and lifting performance with the ability to extend the machine’s dig depth and reach. Bobcat Company is the only manufacturer that offers an extendable-arm option for use with a hydraulic clamp.
• Angle blade
The backfill blade adds tremendous versatility for backfilling and grading.
• Tail-swing type
Conventional tail swing: Good for increased lift capacity, but limits working in tight spaces. Rear of the excavator’s house overhangs track width from 6 to 20 inches.
Minimal tail swing: A balance between conventional and zero tail swing, which makes working in confined areas easier. Rear of house overhangs track width by 6 inches or less.
Zero tail swing: Allows for greater flexibility to slew and deposit soil in confined areas. Rear of house does not overhang track width for optimal work next to building and other objects.
