E14, especially designed for trailer transport
- Compactness – transportability (trailer) – light weight
- Easy maintenance
- Retractable undercarriage
- Auxiliary hydraulics – 2-way control – more attachment possibilities
The E14 is a mini excavator in the 1-2 T class.
Developed as a light weight machine that can be easily transported on a trailer towed by a small truck, van or even a passenger car, the E14 offers high performance in rental, landscaping, municipalities and utilities.
The retractable undercarriage provides excellent stability when fully expanded and easy access to confined spaces when fully retracted.
The operator comfort is ensured by easy access to the cab, convenient layout of all controls designed for the highest requirements. The canopy version offers access from both sides of the excavator.
The large tailgate provides excellent access to service points.
The E14 is equipped with a Kubota engine offering high power and cost-effective fuel consumption for its class.
This model is equipped with auxiliary hydraulics providing a 32.5 l/min flow with 2-way control to get the best out of our attachments.

New on the E14 Facelift
The E14 Facelift offers better standard equipment including ergonomic travel levers and pedals, easy to clean floormat with Bobcat logo and storage box under the seat.
The factory- installed optional equipment now includes some significant improvements like a suspension seat or a Bobcat Heavy Duty radio (for machines equipped wit a cab). 4 tie downs can be added to attach and tide the machine on a trailer (they are not meant to lift the machine). The blade extensions can now be ordered with rubber pads to protect the tarmac when the blade is pushed on the ground. The left-hand blade extension can be reverted with the right-hand blade extensions to position the rubber pads on the top when not needed. Auxiliary lines and their quick connectors can now be located on the arm.
Digging force, lifting capacity and smooth operation
The E14 offers top performance with powerful breakout forces and smooth hydraulics for precise movements. These features are especially advantageous when working in tight spaces. These features combined with faster cycle times allow the E14 to achieve levels of productivity similar to those of larger excavators.
The use of oversized cylinders in the workgroup and a top class hydraulic design means that the E14 achieves digging forces superior not only to major competitive models but also to previous Bobcat models.
The E14 is able to hold more than 300 kg which is very useful when unloading materials on the construction site.
Forces are of limited use if they cannot be controlled. This is why special attention was given to hydraulic smoothness and accuracy when designing these excavators. Thanks to this smoothness, working in confined areas is easier and the operator can be more relaxed.
Stability is essential to make good use of the digging forces and lifting capacities. Optimum stability is achieved by expanding fully the retractable undercarriage and using the long dozer blade.
Retractable undercarriage and dozer blade
When fully retracted, the undercarriage allows the excavator to go through narrow spaces while, when fully expanded, it provides optimum stability for the excavator, especially over the side. Expansion and retraction is simple and easy, via an electric switch on the control panel.
Long dozer blade
In addition to help to dustpan on the front, the long dozer blade improves significantly the stability at the front of the excavator, allowing the operator to make full use of the breakout forces that the machine can deliver.
Durability & Reliability
The durability and reliability of a machine have an important influence on its overall lifetime operating cost. Bobcat uses computer-aided design techniques, highly durable materials and structures which are tested under extreme conditions.
The protective tailgate, which also acts as a counterweight, is made of 4 mm thick steel. It covers the entire rear of the excavator. Since it is made of hardened steel, the durability is excellent. In case of accidents, rework is easy and low cost. Fully open, the tailgate provides ready access to all the components for daily maintenance.
Cylinder over the boom (COB) design
Located over the boom, the cylinder is protected against contact from attachments or stones inside the bucket. This increases the reliability, especially important in small excavators where the boom and attachments are close to each other.
Oversized cylinder diameters
The oversized cylinder diameters not only increase the forces in the workgroup, but also improve cylinder resistance and extend significantly cylinder life.
Pipes inside the boom
All the pipes and hoses, including the auxiliary lines, are routed inside the boom and dipperstick. This not only protects the hydraulic lines, but also offers improved visibility for the operator. The design of the end of the boom castings allows for easy replacement of the hoses, if required.
4-plate boom design with internal welding
The design of the end of the boom castings allows for easy replacement of the hoses, if required.
The use of a 4-plate boom design allows internal welding for improved strength of the boom and increased reliability of the workgroup
Unparalleled operator comfort
The oversized cab provides more space and comfort for the operator, allowing work for longer periods of time with less fatigue. Access to the seat is convenient thanks to the large door width and the console that rises completely out of the way.
In addition, when not in use, foldable pedals increase room for the feet.
Travel pedals are standard. The second speed is a factory option for the E14.
Thanks to the large steel tailgate mentioned previously, all components for daily maintenance are easy to access, reducing downtime to a minimum.
