1.5T Excavator – Product Profile

[dropcap]S[/dropcap]ometimes called a mini excavator, the Bobcat 324 Excavator allows you to dig deeper and reach further with all of your excavation projects. This compact, 1.5T excavator has a 2.6m dig depth and a 4.2m reach, making it one of the best excavation tools to choose for digging in small, tight areas whilst still getting impressive results.

Best for Residential

Thanks to its compact size, the Bobcat 324 Excavator is a popular choice when it comes to excavation projects in residential areas and around homes. Whether you are performing some serious landscaping work in the yard or even cutting a driveway for your home in preparation for concreting, this machine is the perfect choice as not only is it designed with serious excavation potential, it’s also fitted with retractable tracks.  The entire excavator width can reduce down to just 980 mm for travelling in between homes or through narrow gateways.

Small But Powerful

Although it’s small and compact, don’t let the size of this 1.5T excavator fool you into thinking that it’s not going to perform efficiently. Fitted with the same hydraulic system as larger Bobcat excavator models, the compact 324 has impressive cycle times and break-out forces, allowing it to complete jobs in a timely manner. Not only that, it runs extremely quietly, meaning that you have no need to worry about disturbing the neighbours if you’re carrying out an excavation job at home. The operator’s area is designed to be wide and comfortable – this small excavator doesn’t compromise on space there.

Features and Add-Ons

Hire of the Bobcat 324 excavator includes a range of bucket sizes, with 305mm, 455mm and 990mm buckets available to ensure that you have the right size for the job that you are working on. This compact excavator also comes with a ripper, so you’re ready to set it up for any job that you need to do almost straight away. For heavier jobs, a rock breaker attachment is also available as well as a post hole boring unit. Optionally, you can also choose to have a trailer included when you hire the Bobcat 324. There is no license needed to operate this excavator, however it’s important to make sure that you are familiar with the safety procedures before you begin.

With fingertip controls and tight accessibility, the Bobcat 324 excavator is perfect for a whole range of jobs.
