Compact Excavators: Extendable Arm

If you need more reach, Bobcat offers the first and only clamp-ready extendable arm option for select compact excavators. It offers the best of both worlds: power and lifting performance, combined with the ability to extend the machine's dig depth and reach when you need it. 

Features & Benefits

Get Extra Reach

It delivers up to 30 in. of reach at full extension (compared to standard arms), so you can reach farther with less repositioning. Dump spoil further away from the excavator and reach further back into the trench for cleanout purposes. Loading trucks is easier, too, because the extendable arm allows you to place material more efficiently into the truck without moving the excavator.

Easy Controls

Control the extension and retraction of the arm with a paddle on the right-hand joystick controls. When equipped with a clamp, the paddle on the left-hand joystick controls the clamp function. Together, it is a simple process to extend the arm and reach objects to lift and place them.
