Bobcat Company has introduced three all-new models to its R2-Series compact excavator lineup. The E32, E35 25hp and E35 33hp compact excavators provide the productivity and power found in Bobcat's larger excavators in a smaller frame, making all three models ideal for utility, landscaping and residential construction jobs.
Precise and productive
The E32, E35 25hp and E35 33hp are all balanced to improve lift capacity and increase operator confidence due to a variety of features designed with ease of use and efficiency in mind.
The E35 33hp comes powered by a newly redesigned Bobcat engine that delivers efficiency and performance, plus simplified routine maintenance. The engine also improves cold-weather operation and includes a variety of features that make maintenance and service more convenient.
The new low-effort joysticks, coupled with the new hydraulic control valve, offer improved metering, movement and controllability, enabling a quick, smooth and precise work group for ultimate operator control. Advanced hydraulic controls provide the ultimate horsepower advantage so operators can seamlessly swing the boom while operating an attachment, without sacrificing power.
Enhanced operator comfort
The cab for every R2-Series model is designed to enhance operator efficiency, performance and comfort. The spacious interior houses an easy-to-reach control pattern selector right underneath the seat, so operators can switch between ISO and standard controls without getting up or over-reaching. The 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.
With easy-to-reach arm-mounted auxiliary hydraulics and attachment hookup interface, the E32, E35 25hp and E35 33hp help operators do more tasks on the jobsite. The optional clamp diverter provides improved 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.
