he 400 series incorporated zero house swing and fast track features, and expanded the range of 4 to 5 tonne compact excava-tors with the 430, 435 and 435FT models. Zero house swing allowed operators to work more safely and easily while get-ting right up close to buildings and other obstructions. e fast track feature made it possible to travel at twice the normal speed and cover greater distances on or between construction sites. is feature was not o ered by any competitors.

Bobcat excelled in combining the com-pact zero house swing con guration with a roomy, ergonomically designed cab. Its high levels of comfort and safety have been single-handedly responsible for raising customer expectations and

setting the standards for these qualities in compact excavator operation.

Since European demand was developing in the 0 to 1 tonne segment, Bobcat launched the E08 and E10 in 2008. Similar to the 319 with its unique cylinder-over-boom concept, both models were designed and manufactured in Dobříš. Known as micro-excavators, the E08 and E10 featured a retractable undercarriage and blade, little or no tail swing and literally could go where no compact excavator had ever gone before. As well as being able to pass through low, narrow passages and openings, they are easy to transport on a trailer. e E10 included a patented extendable joystick console, o ering the operator more space and comfort. Since their introduction they have been a huge success in Europe.
