Extend Excavator’s Efficiency

Put your next job within reach with Bobcat’s extendable arm option for its M-Series E55 compact excavator. The extendable arm telescopes to provide an additional 30 inches of reach when fully extended. With this option, you can also use a hydraulic clamp to pick up and place materials such as rocks, landscaping materials and debris.

The arm cylinder is operated through a rocker-style thumb switch located on the joystick. A retention pin holds the arm in the retracted position so you can use up to 16 different attachments, including the Hydraulic X-Change mounting system. With the extendable arm, you can enjoy the compact size of the excavator with the option of more reach.

Step, slider in one

Add Rock-Slide Engineering’s step-slider to your truck or jeep to give you a leg up. When you open the vehicle door, the step will deploy, and when closed, the step returns to the home position, becoming a slider. Its wiring harness includes a manual operation switch if the doors are removed, as well as a system shut off if complete disable is required.
