More Hydraulic Power: Bobcat vs. Other Excavator Brands

Watch More Excavator Tests:

Bobcat® compact (mini) excavators are designed to deliver the most hydraulic horsepower. Caterpillar®, John Deere®, and Kubota® try to keep up, but their hydraulic systems can’t deliver.

Using a flow meter, each compact (mini) excavator was tested to find the maximum hydraulic horsepower. Bobcat delivered the highest reading, with 17.1 hp of hydraulic flow. Caterpillar®, John Deere®, and Kubota® attempt to deliver the same performance, but each comes up short. In fact, John Deere® measured an underwhelming 42 percent less hydraulic flow. That’s the kind of difference that will impact your workflow every day. Only Bobcat delivers the industry’s best hydraulic performance.
