bobcat e42 Specifications

Specifications & technical data for the Bobcat E42 Mini Excavator can be found on this page.

The E42 Compact Excavator (Mini Excavator) offers improved hydraulic performance, greater efficiency and more precise control so you can push the limits and tackle more complex jobs. The E42 is an R2 series excavator and features a redesigned Bobcat engine that improves performance, simplifies maintenance and maximizes uptime. Set it up with the optional long arm or extendable arm to increase your digging depth and reduce the frequency of machine repositioning.

Standard features include low-effort joysticks that easily respond to operator input, an improved cooling system to control engine compartment temperature, and a larger swing bearing with increased durability. An optimized hydraulic control valve offers operators better dosing, finite movement, and controllability for grading. In addition, the conventional tail swing is well balanced to improve lift capacity and increase operator confidence. Additional options include a next-generation touchscreen, angled blade, and rear camera for maximum visibility and productivity.
