With an operating weight of 5,920kg, the new model is equipped with the Bobcat D24 diesel engine that delivers a four per cent increase in power along with a seven per cent fuel saving.
The 42.4kW engine offers a distinctive solution to Stage IIIB compliance without the use of a diesel particulate filter (DPF). As well as reducing fuel consumption, this non-DPF solution simplifies the operation and service of the machine because there is no need for DPF regeneration.
For enhanced hydraulic performance and a 10 per cent improvement in lift capacity, the E57W incorporates an updated hydraulic system. A long-arm option increases the doffing depth to 3.8m and the dump height to 4.51m. Peripheral equipment can be attached via first, second or an optional third auxiliary circuit and is operated with proportional controls.
A newly designed cab and operator area features a 7in display to provide fingertip operation of all functions. The cab also has a heated seat, ergonomically placed controls and simple, efficient operating procedure to reduce driver fatigue. The ROPS-certified cab is said to offer excellent visibility, making the worksite a safer place for everyone.
