Welcoming the first Bobcat E10e zero tail swing battery-powered mini-excavator off the production line

Bobcat has announced that the first of the company’s new E10e zero tail swing (ZTS) 1-tonne battery-powered mini-excavators has come off the production line.

The zero emissions mini- excavator is manufactured at the Bobcat compact equipment manufacturing plant at Dobris in the Czech Republic.

The Netherlands, Sweden, Germany, Austria and Norway are the first markets to be selected in Europe, in line with research that shows the highest demand is in these countries. Subsequent sales of the E10e in other countries will depend on the readiness of markets, dealers and the demand from customers.

The E10e is built on the same platform and produced on the same production line as the highly successful diesel-powered E08 and E10z mini-excavators.

This line currently has a total capacity of 2,000 machines a year, and can produce the required mix of diesel and electric models as dictated by market demand.

The Bobcat E10e is the world’s first 1-tonne battery-powered mini-excavator, combining zero emissions, low noise, and a width of just 71cm, allowing it to easily pass through standard doors.

The E10e can be operated for up to four hours on one charge.

By using an optional external 400V supercharger, it can be recharged to 80% of its capacity in less than two hours.
