Bobcat E165 crawler excavator is the largest in its lineup, with an operating weight of 38,376 pounds. The 131-horsepower excavator has a maximum dig depth of 20 feet, with bucket digging force of 25,794 lb.-ft.
The E165 excavator has four selectable power modes and a power boost button on the right-hand joystick that temporarily increases hydraulic power: Power+ mode, Power mode, Standard power mode, and Economy mode.
The X-frame undercarriage has sloped surfaces that shed debris to prevent material buildup and reduce the time spent cleaning the undercarriage.
Smart Power Control matches load to engine rpm, hydraulic pump torque, and engine response.
Variable Speed Control automatically reduces engine rpm during low workload requirements, and improves fuel efficiency by up to 5 percent, according to the company.
Pump Torque Control matches the hydraulic demand with available engine horsepower.
The pressurized cab features a seamless sound-isolating seal to keep sound levels extremely low inside the operator station. The cabin is isolated from the frame to reduce noise. Combined with the heated air-suspension seat, operators will experience minimized vibration and maximum comfort in a large excavator.
The large cabin provides impressive visibility for operators to the front and sides of the machine. An overhead window provides operators with great visibility above the machine, plus narrow corner pillars and small window joints – as well as a removable lower-front window – provide a view that allows operators to see the work comfortably, without obstruction or strain. Front and top sunshades provide additional protection from eye strain while enhancing comfort.
Wide-open access covers provide room to reach the top side of the engine, while a hinged belly pan allows access from the bottom. Solid steel side covers provide quick access to regular daily maintenance items for easy upkeep and more uptime protection. Centralized grease banks can be easily accessed on the base of the boom to make essential daily maintenance quick and easy.
