New generation of mini excavators from Bobcat

16 Sep 14 Bobcat has launched the next generation of its one- and two-tonne mini excavators.

They have a new cab design with narrower pillars and larger windows for improved visibility. 

The E17, E19 and E20 are towable on trailers for up to 2000kg. Expandable undercarriage, automatic slew brake and advanced diagnostics and instrumentation are standard features on all three models.

The new two-tonne E20 model is a zero housing swing (ZHS) excavator, which means that despite having a full-sized cab, it has zero tail swing (ZTS) functionality by further protecting the front upper structure corners turning within the swing circle.  The ZHS configuration in the E20 excavator therefore provides 320° of free rotation when working close to structures. 

Optional features include joystick control of boom swing and auxiliary hydraulics with three selectable auxiliary modes for more precision and more leg room. There are also optional auto shift drive motors and seat options. 

The new control panel has standard readouts such as the fuel gauge and RPM meter but also auto engine shut-down, auto glow plugs countdown, auto cab lights switch-off and audible alarm (in case of malfunction).
