Bobcat Compact Excavators: E42 T4

The Bobcat® E42 compact excavator (mini excavator) minimizes ground disturbance and excels at bulk excavation tasks. The conventional tail swing offers improved dig depth and reach. It’s also easier to move your machine through tight spaces such as doors, gates, and onto trailers. The Tier 4-compliant E42 can be equipped with a long arm to increase your dig depth and reduce your repositioning. Other options include an angle blade and a clamp-ready extendable arm.

The E42 is also available with a long arm option or extendable arm option. For more information on these options, please contact us at
