Bobcat Co. E80 Excavator

May 2009 Vol. 64 No. 5
Bobcat's new E80 excavator.

The E80 excavator machine boasts a completely new design, increasing service intervals, operator comfort and durability.

Daily greasing of the bushings at the boom, arm and bucket pivot is a thing of the past. Normally, this process takes up to 30 minutes of an operator’s time each day. Now, the operator will be able to spend that time working because the E80 has increased the service interval of greasing the bushings to 250 hours.

The E80 offers a spacious cab with an operator seat that adjusts six ways and a heating and air conditioning system that has true automotive-style controls. With these adjustments, operators of any size can adjust the seat to their personal preference in the placement of the armrests, joysticks and seat bottom and back.

These adjustments also let the operator move the seat to an area where the operator can best control the foot pedals and see the work area. Bobcat provides a number of attachments available for use on the E80. The optional pin coupler system allows the operator to quickly change between attachments.

Bobcat also provides a platform for attachments previously used on the 442, allowing owners who have a 442 to use the attachments they already own on the E80. www.bobcat.com/excavators
