Tier 4-Final engines have been added to the the E42, E45, E50 and E55 M Series excavators. An ultra-low particulate combusion design eliminates the need for a DPF. Models E50 and E55 have 12 percent more torque. A machine-protection system monitors engine coolant and oil temperatures, and it manages engine systems to reduce the possibility of shut down, Bobcat says.
