Bobcat Co. expanded its lineup of compact excavators to include the newly released Bobcat E40. As part of the lineup expansion, Bobcat also revised the model numbers for its 3-to-5-ton excavator lineup.

With the E40, operators get high performance, fast cycle times and optimal maneuverability and it’s a minimal tail swing excavator that features less than 2 inches of overhang and a standard long arm.

Features of the new E40 include:

  • Non-DPF, turbocharged Bobcat engine
  • Standard long arm
  • High-lift capacity and powerful slewing performance
  • Dual-flange track roller system for improved lift performance and a smoother ride
  • Standard low-effort joysticks, LED lights and integrated lift eye
  • Extensive attachment versatility

The E40 will be available in late 2023.

Updated model numbers

With the introduction of the new E40, Bobcat revised select model numbers in its 3-to-5-ton excavator size class to better reflect the machines’ size and performance within the industry.

“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,” said Mike Wetzel, director of product development at Bobcat. “The updated portfolio more closely aligns with the excavators’ capabilities when compared to other machines within the same size class.”

The model number changes are as follows:

  • The 33-horsepower Bobcat E35 has been renamed the Bobcat E38. This zero tail swing excavator provides for unobstructed rotation while the turbocharged engine and Bobcat hydraulics produce the digging, lifting and slewing capabilities you might expect in a larger compact excavator. The 25-horsepower Bobcat E35 will retain its model designation.
  • The Bobcat E42 has transitioned to the Bobcat E48. The conventional tail swing E48 is a well-balanced machine, delivering horsepower, precise controls and comfort.
  • The Bobcat E50 has been renamed the Bobcat E55. A minimal tail swing excavator with less than 1 inch of overhang, the E55 puts more power and controllability in a compact package — designed to support faster cycle times.

With these changes and the launch of the E40, the Bobcat 3-to-5-ton compact excavator lineup now includes: E32, E35, E38, E40, E48 and E55. The company offers compact and larger excavators ranging from 1-2-ton to 16-18-ton size classes, as well as battery-electric excavator models.
