Used Bobcat mini excavators for sale

In North America, few names go together in the heavy equipment industry as well as Bobcat and mini-excavators. As their name eludes to, mini-excavators are the smallest of the diverse assortment of excavators available around the world. These digging machines (sometimes called mini-diggers) sit on the body of what is more commonly known as a skid steer. While some skid steers sit on wheels, almost all mini excavators use tracks or crawlers to help provide optimal stability while being operated on rougher terrain. Mini diggers are defined by their dually-articulated hydraulic boom attached to the front of the machine by multi-directional joint.

The concept for the base of mini-excavators was initially created in the late 1950s by farmers in the northwestern United States. However, it was not until the late 1960s that mini-excavators were first invented in Japan by a company called Yanmar. Shortly after its creation, Yanmars competitor Takeuchi began to produce their version of the compact excavator in 1971. It wasn’t until 1980s until mini excavators became popular in the United States. Bobcat led the way in the mini-digging market my making the mini-excavator hydraulic arms attachable to the front of their already prominent skid steer lines.

When it comes time for purchasing bobcat mini-excavators it is important to assess a number of different variables pertaining to the requirements of the project it will be used for. It is important to first consider the size of the area the mini-digger will be working in. For example, if the machine is needed in the forestry industry the Bobcat E32 its the most aptly built for traveling through narrow areas where other mini excavators can’t go. When it comes to pound-for-pound power though the Bobcat E55 seems to standout above the rest. Unlike the E32, which sits at 61 wide, the grounded base of the E55 spans well over 6 feet. This helps provide the piece of heavy equipment with the ability to grapple and swing burdensome objects that other excavators of its size cannot.

Bobcat's version of mini-excavators are called compact excavators. Their line consists of eleven different versions of a mini diggers ranging in size and a few other variables. Their smallest version, the Bobcat 418, is primarily used in more domestic areas for landscaping and is the only of its kind that features and open-air drivers cab. Another one of their relatively small units, the Bobcat E32, is built with a narrow stance giving it the ability to squeeze into more confined spaces but still maintains the lifting power of its competitors. Bobcat also produces a zero tail swing (ZTS) model of their signature excavator line called the Bobcat E45. The ZTS functionality gives the operating free reign in rotating the cab a full 360s. The largest of the Bobcat family is the E85 Compact Excavator. With a maximum reach at ground level of 23.9 feet as well as over 7 tons of bucket digging force the E85 proves itself as one of the most efficient machines amongst the other Bobcat models.
