New E26 Zero Tail Swing

Kettering-based Martyn Wright, who runs a very diversified groundworks, landscaping and waste and recycling business, has taken delivery of a new Bobcat E26 zero tail swing compact excavator purchased from AMS Bobcat, the Authorised Bobcat dealer based in Scunthorpe in Lincolnshire.
The new E26 model joins the company’s existing Bobcat E10 and 335 excavators and continues the Bobcat legacy Martyn established over 15 years ago with his first purchase of a Bobcat 325 compact excavator from AMS Bobcat.
The Bobcat range currently comprises 13 different models of compact excavators with operating weights from 1-8 tonne, including both conventional and zero tail swing designs.
Martyn uses the Bobcat E26, E10 and 335 excavators in every area of his business. Martin told The Landscaper “The relationship with AMS Bobcat has been superb. We have been looked after throughout the duration by Clive McQuinn from the company, who has stopped at nothing to ensure that we get the best possible sales and service support.”
Martyn runs a fleet of attachments with the excavators including Clamp and Auger products from Bobcat. The Clamp attachment is very useful in the timber side of the business and, mounted on the E26 and 335 excavators, is used to harvest trees from local woodland for log splitting and sawing back at the yard. The Auger attachment is ideal for posthole work on local farms and properties.
“The E26 continues the trend set by the E10 and the other E Series machines, which I believe offer a more refined design than other machines on the market. Powered by reliable Kubota diesel engines, Bobcat mini-excavators have always offered smooth controls and the latest generation has taken this to another level. For example, the boom swing on the E26 is controlled by a thumb wheel located on the left joystick, instead of the pedal control used on many competitive machines of this size. This feature improves controllability (metering) of the boom swing function and provides more floor space in the cab.”
Martyn “I have purchased the optional long arm version of the E26 which extends the working range and increases productivity. The inherent stability of the E26 mini-excavator ensures that the long arm version does not require an additional counterweight. As well as increasing the working range, the cabbed long arm version of the E26 still has a weight of only 2700 kg, allowing it to be transported by trailer.”
