Equipped with cab and bucket, the E55 has an operating weight of 5501kg. It is powered by the Kubota V2403-M-DI-TE38-BC-4 turbo-charged Tier III diesel engine, producing 35.4kW net per SAE J1349 of output power at 2200rpm.
A long dipper stick is standard on the E55, giving a maximum digging depth of 3923mm and breakout forces of 26.1 kN and 42.0 kN in the dipper stick and at the bucket, respectively.
The machine has been designed with high stability for increased lifting capacity and more efficient digging in hard ground. With a lifting capacity over the side of 1405kg at 1m height and at a radius of 3m, the E55 can be used to lift heavy loads, including loading and unloading items from trucks as well as installing heavy piping and construction materials on site.
High torque for swinging a full bucket in the extended position allows the excavator to work on slopes as well as on flatter areas.
Bobcat says that integrating the boom swing and auxiliary hydraulic controls in the joysticks gives more precise control than machines that use pedals for these functions.
An ‘auto idle’ feature, which can be turned on or off, reduces fuel consumption and noise.
