324 Mini Excavator – Bobcat™

Reach farther and dig deeper with the 324 compact excavators. Its 8 ft. 6 in. dig depth and 14 ft. reach deliver serious digging possibilities in tight areas, with minimal repositioning. Hydraulically retract the undercarriage to only 39 inches to travel through gates or between homes, and then expand to 54 inches for a wider footprint and greater performance. Equipped with the same hydraulic system as a larger Bobcat excavator, the 324 has impressive cycle times and break-out forces to complete jobs faster. The system’s torque-limiting piston pump is able to sense and react to hydraulic loads, for better utilization of the engine’s torque curve.

Selectable Control Pattern: Easily change between “excavator” and “backhoe” control pattern.

Two-speed Travel: Increased mobility around the jobsite.

Hydraulic Joystick Control: For smooth fluid operation and increased efficiency.

Tight Accessibilities: With a retracted width of just 39 inches, the 324 is able to access jobsites where hand labor was the only other option.

Quick Couplers: Keeps auxiliary quick couplers in convenient location on the boom, but out of the trench and out of harm’s way. On some brands, quick couplers aren’t even standard equipment. Learn more in the Bobcat Advantage Attachment Readiness video.
