Bobcat’s new E35 mini excavator built for precise, low-effort control

Key new features on Bobcat's E35 mini excavator include an integrated lift eye, arm-mounted auxiliary couplers and LED work lights

Bobcat Company introduces its E35 mini excavator, the latest addition to the R2 Series, designed to give operators precise control with ease of use through new low-effort joysticks.

The E35’s joysticks use a new hydraulic control valve built for improved metering to allow smooth controllability and natural, finite movement of the workgroup, as well as better joystick feedback. Bobcat said the result is precise and predictable operation – plus fast cycle times.

Key new features include an integrated lift eye, arm-mounted auxiliary couplers and LED work lights. Optional add-ons include a larger 7-inch touch display, clamp with diverter valve and a high-back heated seat with headrest.

Stay tuned for more about this machine being introduced this week at The Utility Expo in Louisville, KY.
