Bobcat has followed up its special anniversary model of its E16 compact, with enhanced standard versions of not only the 1.6 tonne model but also its E14 compact excavator. 

The new E14 and E16 ‘Facelift’ models feature several new features and options focused on increased operator comfort together with tweaked components and engineering that aligns these models with the rest of the E-Series compact excavators.

 Featuring as standard a retractable undercarriage, the new enhanced E14 and E16 excavators offer responsive hydraulics enabling precise movements and fast cycle times. Both the E14 and E16 can be transported on a trailer towed by a small truck, van or even a mid-size passenger car.

The E14, equipped with heated cab, has an operating weight of 1500 kg and offers a maximum digging depth of 2301 mm.

The E16 offers a choice of dipper sticks: a standard dipper stick and a long dipper stick. Equipped with heated cab, the E16 excavator with standard dipper stick has an operating weight of 1744 kg and offers a maximum digging depth of 2422 mm.  Equipped with the long dipper stick, the E16 has a maximum digging depth of 2602 mm.

Optional features include a premium Bobcat radio; four tie downs; blade extension rubber pads; a suspension seat and an auxiliary hydraulic line on the dipper stick.

Both the E14 and E16 are powered by the 3-cylinder 9.9 kW Kubota D722 engine.  High digging performance is enhanced by the stability provided by the dozer blade and the low centre of gravity of the machines.

Both the E14 and E16 excavator models have the ‘cylinder-over-boom’ design.  Since the cylinder is mounted on top of the boom, it is protected when working in tight spaces or with attachments.  The oversized diameter of the cylinders enhances the breakout forces and lifting capacities of the machines.  Picking up and placing heavy objects is therefore easy with either excavator model as the E14 can lift more than 300 kg whilst the larger E16 can lift more than 350 kg.
