Bobcat R2-Series Excavator on site.

Bobcat has introduced its R2-Series compact excavators with new design, performance, and comfort enhancements. The first R2-Series excavators, the Bobcat E42 and E50 compact excavators, were launched at World of Concrete 2020. Additional R2-Series excavators will be introduced at a later date.

 

Improved low-effort joysticks

New R2-Series joysticks respond easily to operator input, enabling longer operation with less fatigue, the company says. The new hydraulic control valve offers improved metering, finiate movement controllability for level grading, and fast cycle times. 

Depth check ready

Users can utilize the Bobcat depth check accessory kit to improve profitability by minimizing the tendency to over-and-under dig. These excavators are designed to accept all depth check system components. Depth check functions are integrated with your standard 5-inch LCD display or the optional touch display. In addition, the kit is wired, so job conditions or wireless signal loss do not interfere with digging accuracy.

Improved performance

The machines feature dual-flange track rollers that extend the undercarriage structure closer to the track’s edge. The added stability results in lift-over-side capacity, and improves over-the-side digging performance and slewing ability.

Improved versatility

An optional clamp diverter valve has been added for enhanced hydraulic clamp functionality and improved ability to run other attachments without disconnecting the clamp. Auxiliary hydraulics are easier to reach and attach, thanks to a new location on the excavator arm. A standard integrated lift eye will give operators a convenient method for handling objects or moving them in and out of the trench. 

New optional touch display and rear camera 

Operators can view and toggle through performance information using the machine’s 7-inch in-cab display panel. The touch screen is waterproof and hardened to reduce scratching. The rear camera also assists in identifying obstacles on site, offering continuous rear view from the operator’s seat.

Improved cooling system

The R2-Series will be equipped with a new cooling system, with side-by-side head exchangers. This feature controls engine compartment temperature more efficiently, while protecting engine component life. According to the company, there is also no need to separate coolers to remove debris or wash out the coolers.
