Compact Excavators: Multiple Arm Configurations

Choose the right arm configuration for your excavator model and your jobsite. Standard arm configurations come with every excavator model. For greater reach, dig depth and lifting capabilities while maintaining power and lifting performance, consider excavator models with long-arm and extendable arm options.

Features & Benefits

Standard Arm

Standard arm configurations give you maximum breakout force and lifting ability with greater digging performance.

Long Arm

For longer reach and dig depth, equip your machine with the optional long arm (available on certain models). Reach farther from one spot to do more work without repositioning the machine. Load trucks faster and easier with the combination of extra reach and higher dump height. Lift more with greater capabilities enabled by an additional counterweight with the long arm option.

Extendable Arm

If you need even 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.
