I was not impressed with the quality of the new M series skids and mini excavators. I have never tried a Deere mini so I cant comment on that.

Cat 305.5 vs Deere 60g vs Bobcat E63

Thanks for joining us and I hope you enjoy your stay!! Welcome to HeavyEquipmentForums. Joined: Dec 11, Messages: 1 Location: missouri. As far as your question Unless someone has operated both being equal condition in the same type conditions and same amount of time it's really hard to give an honest opinion.

Both brands have their good and bad qualities, right along with raves and rants. Are you buying new or used, if used then it's whole different ball game. If new then you'd be looking at price, ease of parts, warranty What do you plan on doing with your machine? I use mine for a little of everything. We do digging, demo, material handling, mowing and stump grinding, clearing It's s handy machine! The reason I'm in it vs an 8 ton is the ability to fit the excavator and stump grinder in my dump trailer Makes for a very efficient combo doing tree work.

I know most of you guys are sub the 6T if not 4T catergory, but I thought it might interest a few of you anyways. First a Comparison Photo of the two contenders.

Which Brings us to excavator number 1. The John Deere 85D The Caterpillar E I've run out of time to do a write up, I'll finish this later with my thoughts on both machines and some real world data.

Here's some Cat Video for the mean time. DirtMerchantSep 18, Messages: 10, That's got to be the best comparision job site ever. I'm also guessing the company had a huge profit margin since they were demo'ing and not renting. We did that a few times.

Posted via Mobile Device. They have 5 d's all purchased over the last year and will have the first Deere when it makes land fall. I also finished digging an entire month ahead of schedule. They do ok. DirtMerchantSep 19, Messages: 1, Sounds like it would be quite the job. I have an 85D but haven't even spent 15 minutes running it. Operator says it's a great machine, has about or so hours on it now.

Does the top Window on the cat open or is it stationary like the deere?

You may opt out at any time. What was not that long ago a niche product type in North America served by a few dominant brands offering a few models each is today overflowing with more than two dozen brands producing more than different models — even more depending on how you define compact excavators.

Integrated slew brakes hold loads still and steady on slopes for more accurate load placement. Thus, those brands group and market all of their excavators, even their 25,pound or Regardless, for the accompanying product round-up of the compact excavator market, we are sticking to the 6. Absent from the round-up are some leading excavator manufacturers that have models weighing in at just shy of 5.

Easily adjusted via buttons located on top of the blade control lever, a blade capable of angling up to 25 degrees left or right provides the Hitachi Zaxis 50U-3 compact excavator with backfilling efficiencies.

The same feature is available on the corresponding John Deere excavator, the 50D. Kobelco machines are built with durability to last. One thing manufacturers agree on is the need to provide equipment users with simple maintenance requirements, including ground-level access and longer service intervals. A maintained machine is a working machine. Case recently updated all compact excavator models to expand the degree of boom swing and reduce the front corner overhang, says Goettel.

Case also repositioned the auxiliary hydraulics on the boom to make them easier to use. With the continued introduction of M-Series models, Bobcat has expanded its compact excavator offering to a total of nine models excluding the E60 that just surpasses the 6. Features offered on current-generation Bobcat excavators include auto idle, auto shift, fingertip boom control swing, in-track swing frame, pilot-controlled functions and load-sensing, torque-limiting piston pumps.

M-Series excavators come standard-equipped with the X-Change quick-attach system, auxiliary hydraulic lines with quick couplers, and clamp cylinder mounts. The choice of brands, models, configurations, features and options for compact excavators has grown perhaps as no other over the past generation. As with all construction equipment, however, the ultimate value comes down to the ability to efficiently achieve production. There is no point to having a high breakout force and low tear-out force.
