First Bobcat Branded Portable Compressor at Executive Hire Show  

– PA7.4 (7/45) compressor to be shown alongside Bobcat electric excavator –

Doosan Bobcat will be showing the first Bobcat branded portable power product to be seen at an industry event in the UK on Stand I40 at the sold out Executive Hire Show (EHS) from 14-15 February 2024. The PA7.4 (7/45) compressor equipped with a generator option being presented in Bobcat colours is part of a complete line of portable compressors, generators and light towers that now form part of the Bobcat range, building on decades of success and experience in the portable power market. The PA7.4 (7/45) compressor-generator will appear alongside one of the models from the expanding range of electric compact excavators and loaders now available from Bobcat.

Being held once more at the Coventry Building Society Arena in Coventry, the EHS is firmly established as the only annual national event in the UK aimed at tool, equipment and plant hirers and the suppliers serving this dynamic industry. The EHS enables hire professionals to not only see key suppliers they already do business with, in one place, but also to get in front of new companies from around the world who are looking to serve this important market.

Bobcat Branded PA7.4 (7/45) Portable Air Compressor with Generator option

Designed with a focus on simplicity, durability, reliability and transportability, the PA7.4 (7/45) compressor-generator provides 4.0 m³/min (140 cfm) of compressed air at 7 bar nominal pressure. Like all Doosan portable compressors, there is a wide range of options and customizations available for the PA7.4 (7/45) to meet customer needs. 

The integral 8.5 kVA generator is one of these options and meets a specific requirement in utility work to meet the demands of the latest fusion welding equipment, providing electrical power that can also be used for lights and tools together with compressed air for powering breakers and other pneumatic equipment.  

The addition of the portable power range products is the latest broadening of the Bobcat product portfolio, which has grown significantly over the past five years, launching more machines during this period than previously in its entire history. 

Clean and Quiet Operations

Another area of expansion in the Bobcat range is in elecrtrically-powered compact equipment. This began in 2019 with the launch of the E10e, the world’s first 1 tonne electric mini-excavator, which marked the company as a true pioneer in the field of battery-powered equipment. 

Bobcat has since launched the larger E19e electric mini-excavator featuring the same profile, external dimensions and comparable performance as the popular E19 mini-excavator. 

Like the E10e, the E19e boasts the same stability, lift capacity and breakout forces as its conventional counterpart, while its constant torque curve (a feature of electric motors) ensures dependable and powerful operations. With a width of just 98 cm, this electric model is easy to operate in even the most confined workspaces, making it ideal for tasks such as demolition as well as outside applications that require quiet, zero-emission operations. 

At EHS, Bobcat will show either the E10e or E19e on the company’s stand. These products  have been followed up with the development of other leading-edge electric-powered compact products, including the company’s unique T7X and S7X models, the world’s first electric compact track and skid-steer loaders, respectively.
