The Bobcat E26 minimal tail swing compact excavator is replacing the 325 conventional tail swing compact excavator and the 425 zero swing compact excavator. The E26 has a 0.08 of overhang, which allows it to dig in close quarters or reach farther in a smaller space. The unit’s lighter footprint means lane closure issues are eliminated. With minimal tail swing means only the lane being worked on needs to be closed, not parallel lanes. The E26 has all the same ergonomic features as other models in the M-Series line. It has increased visibility — about 30 percent — over previous models. It is powered by a 27-horsepower Kubota engine that is Interim Tier 4 compliant. The E26’s operating weight is 5,690 pounds and has an overall width of 59 inches. Dig depth is 8 foot 6 inches for the standard arm configuration and 9 foot 6 inches for the optional long arm configuration. The two-speed machine has travel speeds of 1.6 and 2.7 mph.
