Bobcat E-42 M-Series Compact Excavator
September 7, 2010

E42_Compact_Excavator_2The new E42 model joins the Bobcat M-Series compact excavator line in the 4-to-5-ton weight class. The E42 is a Conventional Tail Swing unit with a 41.8 horsepower liquid-cooled diesel engine and an operating weight of 9,246 pounds. Redesigned hydraulics with a load-sensing pump and closed center-valve system provide improved, refined control of machine travel and work-group operation. The new hydraulics combined with re-engineered boom geometry also result in increased bucket breakout forces.  Cushioned work-group cylinders offer smooth end-of-stroke for precise control. The E42 comes with an Auto-Idle feature which, if activated by the operator, automatically returns the engine to idle if excavator functions are not used for a period of four seconds, saving fuel and reducing jobsite noise.
