Bobcat Company is expanding its excavator lineup to include a 14-metric-ton excavator – the new E145.

The turbo-charged E145 is ideal for heavy digging and lifting operations on commercial and residential building sites, underground utility applications and road and bridge projects. Featuring a reduced tail swing design, the E145 offers great maneuverability in tight jobsites, enabling contractors to confidently work around obstacles.

It’s also common for contractors to use both a 14-metric-ton excavator with smaller excavators on construction jobsites.
