Get There Faster: Bobcat vs. Other Excavator Brands

Watch More Excavator Tests:

Time spent traveling around a jobsite to your work can add up quickly. Slower travel around the jobsite means you’ll waste valuable digging time. That’s why Bobcat® compact (mini) excavators are designed with travel speed in mind. Caterpillar®, John Deere®, and Kubota® machines try to deliver, but can’t keep up.

According to specifications, travel speeds of each machine should be similar, but a real world test set the record straight. The Bobcat E35 compact (mini) excavator set the standard, finishing in 28 seconds, with the Bobcat E35i following at 31 seconds. John Deere®, Kubota®, and Caterpillar® finished in 34 seconds, nearly 25 ft. behind the leader.
