Expanding the compact excavator lineup

By Adam Freill   


Bobcat Company recently added three models to its R2-Series compact excavator lineup: the E32, E35 25hp and E35 33hp.

The excavators feature low-effort joysticks, coupled with a new hydraulic control valve, to offer improved metering, movement and controllability, enabling a quick, smooth and precise work group for ultimate operator control. Advanced hydraulic controls allow operators to seamlessly swing the boom while operating an attachment, without sacrificing power.

Cabs offer spacious interiors with easy-to-reach control pattern selectors underneath the seat so operators can switch between ISO and standard controls without getting up or over-reaching. Optional automatic heating and air conditioning adjusts depending on the temperature of the cab, keeping operators in a comfortable environment. An optional high-back, heated seat with headrest provides added support for long hours of operation and serves as an ideal complement to the automatic climate control feature.

Owners also have the option to add on a waterproof, chemically hardened seven-inch touch display.

An optional clamp diverter provides the ability to run a variety of attachments without having to disconnect the clamp. The standard lift eye provides a convenient method for handling objects or moving them in or out of a trench.

All three models feature a Bobcat turbo diesel engine. Reach ranges from 195.5” to 204.3”, and the three models all offer dig depths of 121.2”.
