I n an ef for t to compres s as much as possible in to compact and mini -excavators, servicing was becoming an issue due to the difficulty in accessing service components. As wi th other manufacturers, Bobcat has in recent years addressed this issue and, as the E55 shows, access through the wide opening tailgate and sidegate simplifies routine maintenance and, thereby, reduces downtime. There is easy access to all service components such as filters, the batery and radiator as well as centralised grease points.

The air conditioning condenser and hydraulic cooler can be easily separated for cleaning purposes, without need for tools. Auto-tension belts help to reduce maintenance needs. An electronically controlled engine and hydraulic system monitor automatically shut down the machine in the event of a problem.

The counterweight, tailgate and sidegate can be removed easily for unlimited access. The fuel fll point, tailgate and storage compartment under the seat are all lockable. Another security feature is the batery disconnect switch.
