Stronger Slewing: Bobcat vs. Other Excavator Brands – Bobcat Videos

Watch Other Competitive Excavator Tests:

Bobcat® compact (mini) excavators are designed to deliver the most slewing force. That’s the power you need to swing your excavator when digging on a slope. It also determines how quickly you can move material back into your trench. Caterpillar®, John Deere®, and Kubota® try to match it, but they fall short. Only Bobcat delivers the industry’s best slewing force.

We tested each machine by securing a load cell between a floor anchor and each excavator’s bucket, slewing force could be accurately measured. The 33-hp Bobcat E35 compact (mini) excavator delivered the most slewing force at 735 lb., followed by the 25-hp Bobcat E35 with 695 lb. Kubota delivered 561 lb. of force, while Caterpillar measured at 541 lb. John Deere disappointed with just 504 lb. of slewing force. Overall, Bobcat excavators measured 24-46 percent more slewing power than other brands.
