Features

Attachment Features

  • HYDRAULIC X-CHANGE SYSTEM: For the most convenient attachment changes in the industry, choose the optional Hydraulic X-Change system. It maintains optimal “pin-on” bucket geometry so arm and bucket forces are not compromised.
  • ATTACHMENT VERSATILITY: With Bobcat® compact excavators, you can do more than just dig with more than a dozen attachments to choose from. Easily add a hydraulic clamp. Use the standard auxiliary quick couplers. Many attachments can also be used with your Bobcat loader.
  • PRO CLAMP SYSTEM: As an alternative to a clamp attachment, the Pro Clamp system consists of a base component, standard pin-on work tool and optional grading tool. Grab large, small or irregular objects with greater confidence. Create a smooth trench bottom and clean up spoil piles quickly.
  • STANDARD X-CHANGE: The exclusive X-Change™ quick-tach mounting system provides multi-attachment capabilities. It’s designed to maintain arm-to-bucket geometry for top breakout force.
  • SELECTABLE AUXILIARY HYDRAULIC FLOW: Many Bobcat® compact excavators are equipped with selectable auxiliary hydraulics. Three flow rates help you optimize the response of hydraulic attachments such as PowerTilt® and Hydra-Tilt™ swing accessories, clamps, grapples, hydraulic breakers and auger attachments.

Comfort Features

  • LOW-EFFORT JOYSTICKS: Low-effort joysticks in R2-Series excavators respond easily to operator input, helping operators work longer with less fatigue. They’re equipped with fingertip boom swing and auxiliary control, providing quick, precise movement with low effort.
  • OPERATOR-FRIENDLY CONTROLS: Simple, ergonomic controls keep you productive all day long. Control your attachments and travel with precision, flexibility and low fatigue. Feel the quality at your fingertips, as the newly designed joysticks fit better in your hands.
  • ADJUSTABLE SEAT: Adjustable seats on Bobcat compact excavators set new standards for comfort. No matter your height or weight, it’s easy to find an accommodating operating position. With the optional heated seat, cold weather won’t slow you down.
  • CUP HOLDERS AND STORAGE: Storage bins are located throughout the interior. You can store items wherever it’s convenient – on your right or behind you. Keep your beverage in one of the two large cup holders.
  • REMOVABLE FLOOR MATS: Easily remove the rubber floor mats from the excavator for cleaning. Use a hose or pressure washer to remove dirt, dust, and other jobsite grime.

Performance Features

  • REDESIGNED BOBCAT ENGINE: Redesigned for reduced and simplified routine maintenance, the Bobcat® engine on R2-Series excavators delivers the performance you expect. The innovative fuel system, which is more forgiving when fuel levels are low, keeps you working longer. Improved cold-weather operation keeps you productive.
  • STANDARD DISPLAY: Experience full-featured machine interaction and monitoring capabilities from inside the cab with the easy-to-read display. Standard on R2-Series excavators, the detailed full-color display provides access to diagnostic and operation information, allowing you to operate your compact excavator more efficiently and solve problems in the field.
  • INTEGRATED LIFT EYE: The integrated lift eye, standard on R2-Series excavators, gives you a convenient method for handling objects or moving items in and out of the trench.
  • OPTIMIZED COOLING SYSTEM: The cooling system, with side-by-side heat exchangers, controls engine compartment temperature more efficiently than ever before, improving performance and serviceability while protecting engine component life. Cleanout is easier, too. There is no need to separate coolers to clean debris. It also generates less noise to enhance operator comfort.
  • ADVANCED HYDRAULICS: Whether you’re traveling across a jobsite, backfilling, or digging, your excavator’s hydraulic system contributes to performance more than any other feature. When compared to other brands, advanced hydraulics on Bobcat® excavators deliver the most horsepower in working range.
  • PREDICTABLE CONTROL: Bobcat® compact excavators deliver the house, boom, arm and bucket control you expect in the most challenging work environments. It’s the confidence in these precise movements that determines whether you complete the job using your machine, or with two workers and a pair of shovels.
  • MULTIPLE ARM CONFIGURATIONS: Multiple arm configurations are available on select models: standard, long, and extendable. Depending on the reach, depth, power, and lifting performance you need, there’s an arm to meet the needs of your job and increase productivity.
  • DUAL FLANGE ROLLER SYSTEM: Dig with confidence over the side of the machine and experience greater slewing ability thanks to the dual flange track rollers. Operators will also notice smoother, more comfortable ride quality while moving across bumpy jobsites.
  • FINGERTIP BOOM SWING CONTROL: Bobcat® excavator controls allow you to make fine movements with low effort and maximum comfort – so you can get precise results in less time, with less fatigue. With the boom swing control on the joystick, you get more floor space and foot room for better operator comfort on long, tiring jobs.
  • 2-SPEED TRAVEL: Maneuver faster with optional 2-Speed travel. The faster you can move on your jobsite, the quicker you can complete your work. For long-haul jobs or work on large jobsites, 2-Speed travel increases your productivity all day long.
  • INTEGRATED REAR COUNTERWEIGHT: For added stability, the counterweight on compact (mini) excavators is integrated into the structure of the machine. This design contributes to an improvement of lift-over-side capacity up to 15 percent in select models. You’ll notice the difference when you’re lifting a heavy load - such as a culvert - and slewing over the side of the machine.
  • AUTO SHIFT TRAVEL: Auto-shift travel shifts the machine out of high range and back automatically, offering superb travel performance without having to manually downshift. It automatically transitions the travel motors to and from high range, giving you greater tractive effort with no manual shifting. A directional lug track also provides a smoother ride and less vibration when traveling.
  • CONVENTIONAL TAIL SWING: Conventional-tail-swing models typically deliver the greatest lift capacity in the Bobcat excavator lineup. Conventional-tail-swing excavators have a narrower stance (width) for improved access through doorways, gates and property lines and for loading onto a trailer.

Serviceability Features

  • LONGER-LIFE FUEL FILTER: Larger fuel filters in R2-Series excavators provide better system protection and longer life before replacement. With more than double the media surface area, it has more holding capacity to capture impurities for longer intervals. The filter is also easier to change and includes a clear water bowl for easy monitoring and a sensor to notify you when draining is needed.
  • PANORAMIC SERVICEABILITY: Your time should be used completing your work instead of gaining access to components. With Bobcat® compact excavators, it's easy to make maintenance part of your routine. Perform preventative maintenance with industry-leading service access and simple checkpoints. You'll complete essential maintenance as scheduled and reduce your operating costs.
  • GREASELESS PIN JOINT: Unlike most joints, which require greasing as part of daily checklist, Bobcat excavators include a greaseless boom swing cylinder pin joint. For you, that means less time maintaining your machine and more time working.
  • TRAINING RESOURCES: Train operators and technicians in the safe operating and servicing of Bobcat® equipment. Operator training courses, safety videos and other training materials are available at your Bobcat dealer’s parts department or by visiting the training resources.
  • GREASING INTERVALS: Extended grease intervals let you spend more time getting the job done and less time on maintenance.

Uptime Protection Features

  • IN-TRACK SWING FRAME: Bobcat compact excavators are engineered to operate in the smallest of workspaces. Excavators feature the exclusive in-track swing frame, which allows you to get closer to your work. The swing castings and cylinders stay within the tracks when you dig in an offset position.
  • PROTECTION TECHNOLOGY: Bobcat controls and electrical systems are engineered with more watertight, corrosion-resistant connectors than other manufacturers’ machines.
  • PROTECTED COMPONENTS: Exposed hoses, weaker components and inferior design may mean a trip to the shop when you need your machine the most. Bobcat® compact excavators are equipped with a durable tailgate, protected hydraulic lines, smarter hose routing and a redesigned workgroup.
  • EASY MACHINE TIE DOWNS: Get on and off the jobsite faster. Secure your load quickly with accessible tie-downs. Bobcat® compact (mini) excavators come standard with numerous tie-down points that are easy to reach.
  • INTEGRATED SLEW BRAKES: Integrated slew brakes hold your load steady on slopes for more accurate placement and while your excavator is trailered.
  • X-FRAME UNDERCARRIAGE: With better ground clearance, the X-frame undercarriage improves your performance in difficult conditions. Dirt and other materials easily pass through this undercarriage, making cleanup faster and leaving less debris on the trailers.
