Don’t let their small size fool you; compact excavators (also known as mini excavators) are powerful digging machines that are anything but "mini." Bobcat compact excavators with advanced hydraulic systems can often outperform larger tractor loader backhoes, which are limited to only 180 degrees of workgroup movement. The house on a Bobcat compact excavator can continuously rotate 360 degrees. This allows for enhanced spoil placement, superior visibility and reduces repositioning for work in tighter spaces. A tracked undercarriage gives you additional benefits like superior flotation compared to a wheeled machine. Also, compact excavators use less fuel and can be hauled with lighter, more fuel-efficient trucks, keeping your hourly costs down.
When working next to objects, an excavator gives you much more flexibility. In this situation, a tractor loader backhoe may be limited to only 45 degrees of workgroup movement. The excavator excels at the same situation by having up to 180 degrees of movement—allowing you to place spoil where you need to, or even load a truck behind the machine.
Independent boom swing provides offset digging capabilities, enabling you to dig square holes, or on each side of a buried utility without repositioning the machine. Try that without repositioning your backhoe!
Operator offset on a compact excavator
Positions the operator to the side of the boom for an unobstructed view of the attachment. On a tractor loader backhoe, you have to lean around the boom to see the attachment.
When you purchase your trucks, do you purchase the smallest-horsepower engine available? The same reason you demand more horsepower in your trucks is the same reason you should demand it in your compact excavators; more power means more performance under load.
We pack in more horsepower than other manufacturers' producing excavators with superior performance under load as well as improved compound use of multiple functions. This loaded performance is easily measured in increased slew torque, faster cycle times and maximum auxiliary hydraulic performance. The end result is more work per hour in the toughest conditions and increased attachment performance.
By having more engine horsepower, Bobcat excavators generate more hydraulic horsepower where it counts — under maximum flow and maximum pressure. This allows the excavator to utilize flow at higher pressures, which translates into faster cycle times under load. Simply put, they dig stronger and faster.
