WEST FARGO, N.D.—Bobcat, the only company that manufactures compact excavators in the United States introduces the new M-Series excavators. These new compact excavators are re-engineered to deliver increased performance in a lighter machine. The new E32 and E35 M-Series excavators are in the 3- to 4-ton weight class. These two machines follow the introduction of the new M-Series E80, which is in the larger 6- to 8-ton weight class. With the M-Series introduction, Bobcat is instituting a new numbering system for excavators. The new machine numbers now correspond to the excavator’s weight in metric tons. For example, the “32” in E32 is for 3.2 metric tons.
The E32 is a Conventional Tail Swing excavator, and the re-engineered house has reduced the overhang by 45 percent from previous excavators of comparable size. The E35 is a Zero Tail Swing excavator that excels at working on space-constrained jobsites, such as next to buildings or other obstacles.
The E32 and E35 have 33.3 horsepower engines, dig depths of 10 feet, 2 inches and a dump height of 11 feet, 3 inches. The E32 has a reach at ground level of 16 feet, and the E35 has a ground-level reach of 16 feet, 9 inches.
