Bobcat releases E40 compact excavator

As well as the expansion of the compact excavator range, Bobcat has renamed several of its models

Bobcat has expanded its lineup of compact excavators with the new 4.2-tonne E40.

As part of the lineup expansion, Bobcat has also revised the model numbers for its 3 to 5-ton (2.7 to 4.5-tonne) excavator lineup to more closely align with the industry’s size class.

The E40 is a minimal tail swing excavator, with less than two inches of overhang and a standard long arm.

Bobcat says features include high lift capacity, a dual-flange track roller system for improved lift performance and a smoother ride, standard low-effort joysticks, LED lights and integrated lift eye.

The E40 will be available in late 2023, with no news as yet as to whether it will be made available in Australia. Bobcat will preview the E40 at Equip Exposition in Kentucky in October.

“Our compact excavator lineup within the 3-to-5-ton size class has grown, and the updated model numbers better reflect the outstanding performance capabilities that empower our customers to accomplish more each and every day,” Bobcat director of product development Mike Wetzel says.

“The updated portfolio more closely aligns with the excavators’ capabilities when compared to other machines within the same size class.”

The 33hp (25kW) Bobcat E35 has been renamed the Bobcat E38. This zero tail swing excavator provides for unobstructed rotation while the turbocharged engine and proven Bobcat hydraulics produce the digging, lifting and slewing capabilities you might expect in a larger, less manoeuvrable compact excavator. The 25hp (19kW) Bobcat E35 will retain its model designation.

The Bobcat E42 has transitioned to the Bobcat E48 while the Bobcat E50 has been renamed the Bobcat E55.
