Bobcat Compact Excavators: E32, E35

August 2009 Vol. 64 No. 8
The Bobcat E32.

The new engine, air intake, cooling and exhaust systems, along with an entirely new pump and valve system lower sound levels, resulting in a more comfortable, quieter machine. The overall sound levels have been reduced by more than 50 percent. New directional lug tracks also offer a smoother ride.

A significant contributor to excavator productivity is the comfort of the operator. Bobcat has designed the cab so the operator is comfortable in the machine, whether spending one hour or a whole day at the controls. On the new E32 and E35, the boom swing control has been removed from the floor and placed on a thumb switch on the left joystick, which is easier to operate and opens up space on the floor for the operator’s feet. The new larger travel pedals also fold up for more floor space.

Adjustable armrests allow the operator to move the rests to a more comfortable position. For precise engine speed adjustments, Bobcat added an easy to use rotary knob.

The E32 and E35 excavators also feature an integrated slew brake. The brake eliminates the need to manually engage a slew brake when transporting the machine, and provides infinite brake positioning.

Popular excavator options previously offered on Bobcat excavators are still available on M Series models, including long arm, enclosed cab, climate control, auxiliary hydraulics, angle blade and Hydraulic X Change mounting systems for quickly switching between the 16 attachments approved for use on the machines.

A lockable toolbox and pocket console keep tools and paperwork close at hand and secure, while rear and side access doors and fuel fills are also lockable to prevent vandalism.

The E32 and E35 have 33.3 horsepower engines, dig depths of 10 feet 2 inches and a dump height of 11 feet 3 inches. The E32 has a reach at ground level of 16 feet, and the E35 has a ground level reach of 16 feet, 9 inches.
