„One Tough Animal”
Bobcat is a global leader in the production of compact machines and construction equipment. The company sells skid steer loaders, compact excavators, compact utility vehicles, compact tractors and other small hydraulic equipment. The Bobcat brand is associated with durability and reliability – solid, versatile and agile equipment rightly earned the nickname “One Tough Animal”. Bobcat also offers many mini-excavator models (including the popular Bobcat 323 mini excavator).
In one of the articles we have already described the advantages of mini excavators (you can read here). Small excavators work well in places where ordinary excavators or backhoe loaders have limited access due to their dimensions. The mini excavator will enter almost everywhere and due to its compactness will not cause major damage to the area. You can move on most surfaces, especially if you use rubber tracks. Especially suited to wetlands. In comparison to larger excavators, mini excavators are not in danger of collapsing or getting stuck in the ground. A mini excavator also means less noise – the machine generates less sound when the engine is running and moving.
Bobcat 323 mini excavator
The new compact Bobcat 323 excavator replaces the 322. It comes equipped with a number of improvements to do more work, in less time. It is characterized by low fuel consumption, longer life of hydraulic system components, less machine noise and lower engine exhaust emissions. The 323’s hydraulic system features a more efficient piston pump instead of a gear pump. This pump produces good digging forces with minimal engine lugging. Top speed in the highrange of the two-speed travel has been increased 30 percent. This significantly saves time when moving around the workplace.
The 323 uses the same undercarriage and rubber tracks as the 322. It retracts to a width of just 99 mm to fit through doors, gates and other narrow passageways and expands to a 137 mm wide stance for improved digging and loading performance Steel tracks are available for improved track wear when working in rocky terrain and in areas littered with concrete chunks, rebar and other debris.
Bobcat 323 comes standard with auxiliary hydraulics for operating attachments such as the auger, clamp and hydraulic breaker. The excavator cabin is heated, has an adjustable suspension seat and a joystick that allows easy work control.
