Bobcat Advantage: Compact Excavator Tests and Comparisons

News & Updates

Why Purchase an Excavator?

First, excavators cost lest to purchase and maintain than larger excavating equipment such as tractor loader backhoes (TLB)s. Excavators also use less fuel, as much as 40% less in an 8-hour workday, saving owners more money. Bobcat excavators are much more flexible than TLBs, which are limited to 90 degrees of workgroup movement. An excavator working in the same situation has up to 180 degrees of movement for better spoil placement of truck-loading applications. Excavators need less repositioning because of their independent boom swing. Lastly, excavator owners sit in an offset position for better visibility to the attachment and work area. TLB visibility is obstructed by the boom.

Attachments expand the versatility of Bobcat compact equipment, allowing you to take on more jobs, different tasks and get more work down in less time. Available for purchase or rent at our dealerships, there are more than 100 unique attachments with hundreds of models to choose from.
