Part of the Bobcat® M-Series of compact excavators (also known as mini excavators), the E32 is a conventional tail swing model. The E32, which is narrower than the E35, is ideal if you frequently work around width restrictions such as doors or gates. Like all M-Series models, the E32 offers top digging performance with advanced hydraulics and top operator comfort. Stay comfortable in a quieter cab that reduces sound levels by more than 50%. Bobcat engineers and manufactures its own attachments to help you accomplish even more.

More Information

Auto Idle: Idles the engine when machine functions are not used for four seconds or more; throttle returns to previous position when joystick is moved or travel function is engaged.

Auto Shift Travel: Transitions the drive motors to and from high range during travel; provides on-demand travel performance with no manual shifting. Bobcat excavators travel faster than other brands. See for yourself in the Bobcat Advantage Travel Challenge video.

Extendable Arm (Optional): The extendable arm provides an additional 30″ of reach when at full extension, while maintaining the ability to operate with standard reach which retains original arm and bucket forces. In addition, the structure provides compatibility with the clamp attachment as well as the Hydraulic X-Change mounting system. The Bobcat extendable arm is the industry’s first and only clamp-ready extendable arm. See for yourself in the Bobcat Advantage Travel Challenge video.

Selectable Auxiliary Hydraulic Flow: Operator can elect one of three flow rates to optimize the response of particular hydraulic attachments such as maximum flow for attachments like the auger, medium flow for slower clamp movements and lowest flow for precise movements of a Power Tilt accessory.

Conventional Tail Swing: Offers top lift capacity and better access through doors or crowded yards.

Piston Pump and Closed Center Valve System: Senses loads, delivers smooth control and provides exceptional metering.

Hydraulic System: Provides smooth, refined operation for tough jobs. Watch the Bobcat hydraulic system outperform other brands in the Bobcat Advantage Digging Challenge, Lifting Challenge, Slew Challenge, Backfill Challenge and Hydraulic Horsepower Challenge videos.

Easy Hydraulic Clamp Installation: Simplify installation of a hydraulic clamp through an auxiliary port relief on the closed center valve. Clamp mounts integrated into the dipper arm. Some brands don’t even feature a standard clamp mount. Compare them in the Bobcat Advantage Attachment Readiness video.

Fingertip Swing Control: Rocker-style thumb switch improves metering of the swing function and provides more floor space. Bobcat offers the best multifunctioning capabilities. Compare other brands in the Multifunctioning Advantages video.

Quick Couplers: Keeps auxiliary quick couplers in convenient location on the boom, but out of the trench and out of harm’s way.

Easy Hydraulic Clamp Installation: Simplify installation of a hydraulic clamp through an auxiliary port relief on the closed center valve. Clamp mounts integrated into the dipper arm.
