New R2-Series 5-6 tonne mini-excavators from Bobcat

18 January, 2022

Bobcat has launched its new R2-Series generation of 5-6 tonne mini-excavators – the new E50z and E55z models - offering many new state-of-the-art features and options.


In the E50z and E55z, Bobcat’s Zero House Swing (ZHS) feature adds another level of protection to the standard zero tail swing design, providing full peace of mind when operating the machine near walls. With ZHS, the rotation of the upper structure of the E50z and E55z remains fully within the footprint of the tracks. This includes the boom swing offset cylinder, front corners, handles, lights and even the door in both open and closed positions.

The E50z ZHS model is an easy-to-use, robust machine optimised for specific rental industry needs while introducing the next level of operator comfort and features required by demanding owner-operators. The weight has been increased and optimized in the E50z to maximize stability, which has allowed Bobcat to provide a long arm as standard equipment. The E55z is a premium performance model - it is the largest and most powerful Bobcat machine with the ZHS design. The R2-Series mini-excavators are powered by the Kubota V2403 4-cylinder engine providing 36.5 KW (49 HP) at 2200 RPM.

Built around the operator

Like the Bobcat R-series 2-4 tonne machines launched in 2018, the new R2-Series mini-excavators are built around the operator and are designed to take this philosophy a big stage further. This makes operators feel even more at home when working with these machines.

Both excavators offer a best-in-class roomy cab with space where the operator really needs it, with more headroom, legroom and plenty of storage areas. A comfortable seat that can be optionally heated and fitted with a headrest ensures operators will enjoy working a full day in both of these new machines. The new 5-inch optional display panel takes comfort and visibility to the next level.

The new R2-Series mini-excavators are equipped with state-ofthe-art technology such as a latest generation main control valve, dual curve joysticks and proportional thumb-controlled boom swing offset. Traditional Bobcat performance coupled with great controllability ensures that the new excavators feel like an extension of the operators’ hands when they are in command of the controls. To ensure that operators can work precisely and safely, the new excavators offer best-in-class panoramic visibility from the cab, with solid but narrow pillars, ensuring the operator is fully aware of the working area around the machine. Features such as powerful demisting ensure that visibility remains uncompromised in all circumstances.

Increased versatility Up to three arm-mounted hydraulic auxiliary lines plus a case drain line enable a wide choice of machine customization options to match any attachment requirement, further enhancing the role of these excavators as excellent tool carriers.
