Bobcat has expanded its lineup of compact excavators to include the Bobcat E40. Additionally, Bobcat has revised the model numbers for its 3- to 5-ton excavator lineup to align with the industry’s size class.
With the E40, operators get performance and maneuverability with practical features. It is a minimal tail swing excavator, with less than 2 in. of overhang and a standard long arm. The E40 delivers an over-the-blade lift capacity and over-the-side lift capacity for demanding jobs on construction sites.
The E40 serves as a jobsite solution for those who require trailering and maneuverability to complete challenging tasks in confined work areas. The E40 offers performance with simplified option packages.
- Powerful non-DPF, turbocharged Bobcat engine
- Standard long arm
- High lift capacity and powerful slewing performance
- Dual-flange track roller system for lift performance
- Standard joysticks, LED lights and integrated lift eye
- Attachment versatility
With the introduction of the new E40, Bobcat has revised select model numbers in its 3-to-5-ton excavators’ size class to better reflect the machines’ size and performance within the industry.
The model number changes are as follows:
- The 33-hp Bobcat E35 has been renamed the Bobcat E38. This zero-tail swing excavator provides for unobstructed rotation while the turbocharged engine and Bobcat hydraulics produce digging, lifting and slewing capabilities. The 25-hp Bobcat E35 will retain its model designation.
- The Bobcat E42 has transitioned to the Bobcat E48. The conventional tail swing E48 is a well-balanced machine, delivering horsepower and controls.
- The Bobcat E50 has been renamed the Bobcat E55. This excavator features a minimal tail swing with less than 1 in. of overhang.
With these changes and the launch of the E40, the Bobcat 3-to-5-ton compact excavator lineup now includes: E32, E35, E38, E40, E48 and E55. Bobcat offers compact and larger excavators ranging from 1-2-ton to 16-18-ton size classes, as well as battery-electric excavator models.
