Bobcat compact excavators give you perfect control of the boom, arm and bucket, even in the most challenging work environments. Having confidence in this control and your precise movements enables you to complete the job using your machine, instead of doing it with manual labour. This predictable control is delivered through exclusive control valve systems and torque-limiting piston pumps that match force with demand.

To raise your productivity, choose between two travel speeds to increase your speed around your job site.

You can work in confined areas and squeeze through the tightest workspaces by retracting the tracks on Bobcat E08, E10, E17, E19 and E20 compact excavators. The hydraulically activated retractable undercarriage is the ideal solution for access through narrow gates and doorways.

The Bobcat E10 allows you to choose the position of your joystick controls: outward for comfort, or inward for passing through narrow openings. The hydraulic joystick control ensures smooth, fluid operation, helping you operate at maximum efficiency.

Bobcat compact excavators feature a unique canopy that gives operators better visibility in confined areas. The lightweight design, which is ROPS, TOPS and FOGS certified, keeps compaction to a minimum when crossing lawns and other established surfaces.

Bobcat compact excavators are engineered to operate in the smallest of workspaces. All models feature the exclusive In-Track Swing Frame, which allows you to get closer to your work. The swing castings and cylinders stay within the tracks when you dig in an offset position.

Like all Bobcat machines, our compact excavators are designed to prevent problems before they occur. Electronics meet or exceed the most demanding specifications for sealing, moisture, shock and vibration. Automatic glow plugs deliver easier starts and ensure longer starter life, while battery run-down protection guards against vandals or forgetful operators.

Do you frequently work in confined areas, close to objects, or against a wall? On models with minimal and conventional tail swing, the rear of the house protrudes beyond the width of the tracks. To avoid this restriction and give yourself the greatest flexibility, choose a zero tail-swing model; the rear of the house stays within the width of the tracks through full rotation. With zero tail swing, you rotate and deposit soil where you need it, reposition the machine fewer times, and worry less about accidentally striking any surrounding objects.

For more accurate placement of your load, the integrated slew brakes hold the machine steady on slopes. This makes it easier to load the machine, and you no longer need to manually engage the slew brakes during transport.


Bobcat compact excavators give you more engine horsepower than other brands with models of a similar size. And as operators know only too well, more power means more performance under load. This Bobcat performance advantage is easily measured in, faster cycle times and maximum auxiliary hydraulic performance. The end result for you is more work per hour in the toughest conditions and higher performance from your attachments.

With Bobcat compact excavators, you will find it easy to make maintenance part of your routine. Using Bobcat’s simple industry-leading service access checkpoints, you can quickly carry out preventive maintenance. Use your shop time to finish the job instead of trying to gain access to checkpoints – you will complete essential maintenance as scheduled and reduce your operating costs!

Certain Bobcat compact excavator models have 250-hour greasing intervals, thanks to polymer shims and the special design of the bushings on the boom, arm and bucket.

Bobcat designers have configured a centralised grease bank to make lubrication of the slew bearing and slew pinion fast and easy. With a large opening, it’s simple to reach the well-protected grease cylinder fitting and complete track tensioning.

You can keep your Bobcat compact excavator on the job – and out of the shop – thanks to its smart diagnostic features. Machine Shutdown Protection: to maximise uptime, most Bobcat excavators come standard with automatic shutdown that tracks engine coolant temperature, engine oil pressure, hydraulic oil temperature and other functions. The system is designed to prevent catastrophic engine failure: it shuts down the machine if necessary, reducing the chance of damage to the engine or hydraulic components. Diagnostics: Bobcat provides on-board diagnostics to efficiently troubleshoot problems while you are working and prevent them before they occur – reducing your machine’s downtime. Cold Weather Engine Protection: this feature protects your machine from working too hard in cold weather before the engine is properly warmed up.


With Bobcat ergonomic controls, you stay productive all day long. They help you control attachments with precision and flexibility, without feeling tired. Grade, level and backfill with less exertion. Then head to the next work area using the one-hand travel control and adjust the arm rests for added comfort!
