The new arrivals include the first 8-tonne Bobcat E85 in the UK, as well as additional new E16, E26 and E45 excavators. 

Kelsey director Nadine Clark said: “Following an excellent period in the second half of 2013, which has continued in the first part of the year, we have decided to expand our fleet to meet the increased demand.

“We chose the Bobcat brand again, as we have been running Bobcat excavators for more than five years now and they have been successful and popular with our customer base.”

The Bobcat E85 compact excavator has an upgraded hydraulic system resulting in higher pressures and flows. Bucket digging force has been increased to 61.8kN, a 13% increase over the previous E80 model.
