Bobcat Company's new R2-Series E60 compact excavator features improved ride quality and a redesigned Bobcat engine that delivers the performance operators need, while simplifying maintenance.

New dual flange rollers increase lift-over-side performance and provide a ride quality that's smoother and more comfortable for operators. Over-the-side digging performance and slewing ability is also improved. An optional clamp diverter valve has been added for enhanced hydraulic clamp functionality and improved ability to run other attachments without disconnecting the clamp. Auxiliary hydraulics are easier to reach and attach, thanks to a new location on the excavator arm.

The new engine improves cold-weather operation. R2-Series excavators have a new fuel filter that's larger, enabling better system protection and longer filter life with more than double the media surface area. It has more holding capacity to capture impurities for longer intervals, greatly extending the life of the fuel filter. Efficiency, cleanout and noise levels are improved on the cooling system.

LED lights are standard and add-on counterweight, a high-back heated seat, and rearview camera are available options.
