A new extendable arm option for M-Series E32 and E35 compact excavators provides 30 inches of additional reach beyond the standard arm. The arm design allows the use of a hydraulic clamp (or thumb), which Bobcat says isn’t possible with other mini-excavator extendable arms on the market. A retention pin holds the arm in the retracted position to allow use of up to 16 attachments; it also accommodates the optional Hydraulic X-Change mounting system. Truck loading is made easy with the machines’ 12-foot-6-inch dump height.
