Bobcat Extendable Arms
September 25, 2012

 Bobcat has added more versatility to three machines with a new extendable arm option for the M-Series E42, E45 and E55 compact excavators. The extendable arm is a telescoping arm that provides the best of both worlds — power and reach — and will appeal to customers working in space-restricted areas, allowing them more flexibility to clean out trenches and to place soil further away from an excavation. Bobcat E42 and E45 excavators with the extendable-arm option feature a 24-inch range of motion with maximum dig depths of 12 feet 6 inches and 12 feet 10 inches, respectively. The extendable-arm option includes an additional counterweight. The Bobcat E55 excavator with extendable-arm option has a 30-inch range of motion and a maximum dig depth of 14 feet 7 inches; approximately 22 inches more dig depth than an E55 with the standard arm configuration.
