Bobcat Company is expanding its excavator lineup to include a 14-metric-ton excavator – the new E145. The E145 is the largest Bobcat excavator, offering the performance that customers require for the changing construction projects they face every day.

The turbo-charged E145 is ideal for heavy digging and lifting operations on commercial and residential building sites, underground utility applications, and road and bridge projects. Featuring a reduced tail swing design, the E145 offers great maneuverability in tight jobsites, enabling contractors to confidently work around obstacles.

The new E145 excavator complements the performance of 700 and 800 frame size Bobcat compact track and skid-steer loaders, particularly on new residential and commercial jobsites. It's also common for contractors to use both a 14-metric-ton excavator with smaller excavators on construction jobsites. Contractors can work more efficiently with the excellent digging and lifting capabilities of the new Bobcat E145 excavator.

Powerful performance

The E145 delivers class-leading hydraulic performance that provides reliable, steady power to the work group, saving excavator operators time with every digging cycle. The machine boasts industry-leading lifting capacity that enables operators to pick and place items with ease, as well as more slew torque for slewing uphill, backfilling and all-around better productivity. The turbo-charged non-DPF engine provides consistently high torque levels, regardless of elevation.

Four selectable power modes allow E145 operators to adapt to the work at hand, whether they need efficient fuel consumption or all-out power for tough digging and heavy lifting. In addition, a power-boost button temporarily increases hydraulic power, when operators need to break through hard ground. The new E145 can be equipped with an optional dozer blade for improved digging stability and leveling ability on uneven surfaces, and to allow fast, easy backfilling.

Rugged durability

Several features help reduce the risk of downtime for E145 excavator operators. The D-channel design of the E145 upper structure frame adds strength to better withstand side impacts and protect machine components. Hard, wear-resistant wear plates at the attachment connecting pins eliminate side play for extended service intervals on bucket pin-up points. Track pin links are permanently sealed and never need lubrication, which helps reduce operating costs and reduce downtime and drive motors are recessed within the track width to protect against jobsite hazards. An automatic belt tensioner maintains constant tension on the engine accessory belt, compensating for regular wear and maintaining the performance excavator operators demand. Every major pin joint on the boom and arm is cast. And reinforced cast steel pin bosses provide extra strength for the tough working conditions. In addition, the E145 offers several features that help protect the machine from theft or vandalism, including a passcode protection, a master battery disconnect, lockable panels and lockable fuel fill points.

Exceptional comfort

The E145 builds on the reputation that Bobcat Company has for delivering exceptional excavator operator comfort. The pressurized cab features a seamless sound-isolating seal to keep sound levels low inside the operator station. Thorough sound isolation reduces noise output outside the cab. The large cabin provides impressive visibility for operators to the front and sides of the machine. Other comfort features include an air suspension seat, a premium heating and air-conditioning system, an easy-to-read 7-inch LCD screen, and standard rearview and sideview cameras.

Easy component access

Access panels open wide and provide ample room to reach the top side of the E145 engine and a hinged belly pan allows access from the bottom. Solid steel side panels provide access to regular daily maintenance items for easy upkeep and more uptime protection. Centralized grease banks can be easily accessed from ground level to make essential daily maintenance quick and easy.

Preventing damage to buried utilities

When you start up an excavator or a backhoe and begin to dig, do you ever consider the risks? Just beneath our feet are hundreds of thousands of kilometres of pipes and cables, that crisscross the country and provide the essential services that we rely on every single day. This underground infrastructure is a crucial component for the comfort, productivity and safety that we expect in our day-to-day lives: it distributes electricity, natural gas and clean drinking water, as well as cell service and internet – facilitating both electronic communication and financial transactions. Striking a buried utility line can result in inconvenient outages for entire neighbourhoods, and even cause harm to yourself or others. A damaged utility line will require expensive repairs and can result in fines, penalties and litigation.
