Oman takes delivery of Bobcat mini-excavators

26 Oct 16 Muscat-based Oman National Engineering & Investment Co has taken delivery of 20 new Bobcat E20 compact excavators supplied by International Heavy Equipment LLC (IHE).

The machines are claimed to be the first mini-excavators to be sold in the country. Bobcat regional director Middle East and Africa Gaby Rhayem said: “We are delighted with this order, which is the result of pioneering work by Bobcat and IHE to introduce the mini-excavator concept in Oman.“

Oman National Engineering & Investment Co was formed in 1978 to manage the rural electricity system for the country’s Ministry of Electricity & Water.

The Bobcat E20 2t model is a zero housing swing (ZHS) excavator, which means that it offers enhanced 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 provides 320° of free rotation when working close to structures.
