28 Compact Equipment NOVEMBER/DECEMBER 2018 BOBCAT E85 Bobcat has filled out the top end of its R-Series excavator lineup with the new E85, the largest ma- chine in the company's family. The 8.5-ton E85 is part of the fastest-growing-size class of compact excavators in North America, and this unit has been redesigned with performance, uptime pro- tection and operator comfort in mind. The 66-hp E85 does not require a diesel particulate filter or selective catalytic reduction. A new standard lift eye helps operators properly lift and place objects. The 13 in. of tail overhang allows the E85 to work in tight environments. Along with having one of the largest cab openings, Bobcat has redesigned its R-Series cab with increased floor space and ad- ditional glass surface area, which includes an im- proved top window and narrower side pillars for visibility.

JCB has its sights on the rental industry. The company notes its recently released 18Z-1 and 19C-1 compact excavators are more durable, require less main- tenance and are safer to use than comparable 1- to 2-ton compacts. These units are also rental ready. The 18Z-1 and 19C-1 share a common design philosophy, based on durability and simplified maintenance. Common features include an all-steel bodywork for maximum impact protection, rental-ready design with protection for hydraulic rams and hoses, 500-hour greasing in- tervals, swing-out counterweight, integrated tie-down points to aid transportation and a two-year/2,000-hour warranty.
