The E55 conventional-tail-swing compact excavator joins the Bobcat M-Series with an operating weight of 11,592 pounds, an overall width of 77.2 inches and is powered by a 484.8-hp turbocharged interim Tier 4-compliant diesel engine. Tail overhang of 13.4 inches enhances lift capacity and slew performance. The E55 is standard equipped with a TOPS/ROPS-certified cab, full climate control and a high-back cloth suspension seat with a retractable seat belt. The “radio ready” cab includes a 12-V power port, adjustable armrests, a lockable toolbox and a finger-tip control for boom swing and auxiliary hydraulic functions. A keyless start system is designed to discourage theft and vandalism. A load-sensing piston pump and closed center valve system provide precise control of the machines travel and work-group functions.
