Oman National Engineering & Investment Co has taken delivery of the first mini-excavators to be sold in the country, comprising 20 new Bobcat E20 compact excavators, supplied by International Heavy Equipment LLC.
Gaby Rhayem, Regional Director Middle East and Africa for Bobcat, said: “We are delighted with this order, which is the result of pioneering work by Bobcat and IHE to introduce the mini-excavator concept in Oman. This tender was won by a joint effort between IHE and Bobcat, involving our staff in Dubai and Doosan Bobcat management including Jose Cuadrado, Vice President Compact Equipment – EMEA, who was part of our team which visited SAOG prior to winning the order.“
The Bobcat E20 2 tonne model is a Zero Housing Swing (ZHS) excavator, which means that it offers enhanced Zero Tail Swing (ZTS) functionality by further protecting the front upper structure corners turning within the swing circle. The ZHS configuration in the E20 excavator therefore provides 320° of free rotation when working close to structures, without sacrificing on operator comfort or performance.
Oman National Engineering & Investment Co. chose the Bobcat E20 excavator because it is a state-of-the-art machine that provides a perfect balance uniting all the benefits of the ZHS design with the high performance and stability expected of a market-leading 2 tonne conventional tail swing excavator.
According to Bobcat, the E20 compact excavator provides an unmatched combination of class-leading breakout forces, working range, smoothness of workgroup functions, hydraulic output and fast cycle times, centred around a roomy and comfortable operator environment, durability and excellent service access.
