Bobcat has launched its next generation of 1-2t min excavators.

The new E17, E19 and E20 compact excavators come with more roomy excavator cabs with larger windows and narrow pillars to maximise all-around visibility.

Bobcat says the high performance excavators provide class-leading breakout forces and smooth hydraulics for precise control of fine tasks

The new models are towable on trailers for up to 2000 kg, and come with better tie-down points.

An expandable undercarriage, automatic slew brake and advanced diagnostics and instrumentation are standard features on all three excavators.

The new E20 2 tonne model is a zero housing swing excavator even with a full-sized cab.

The excavators have a new control panel that ensures all parameters can be checked quickly and easily in a single viewing, including standard readouts such as the fuel gauge and RPM meter but also auto engine shut-down; auto glow plugs countdown; auto cab lights switch-off and audible alarm (in case of malfunction).
