Bobcat 2-5t excavators

An enhanced instrument panel is now standard on all new Bobcat 2-5t mini-excavators and offers a variety of features, including selectable auxiliary hydraulic flow function.

Another new feature is a sound indicator. This produces a series of beeps to indicate the fuel level when refuelling. The shorter the intervals between beeps, the nearer the tank is to being full. It is also possible to push a button and scroll through operating data such as rpm, hours and jobs.

To prevent the battery from going flat, a new function automatically switches off the lights when the machine has not been operating for 10 minutes.

Keyless ignition is now also available as an option on Bobcat 2-5t machines.
