New Holland Construction’s E55BX short radius mini-excavator provides big digging power with the maneuverability and accessibility of a compact model. Built on a short radius platform with minimal tail swing overhang, the E55BX offers high breakout forces, deep dig depth and excellent dozing capability.
“If you work in tight areas, and you need straight-out digging performance, the E55BX short radius mini-excavator fits the bill,” says Paul Wade, New Holland Construction Product Marketing Manager. “The E55BX excels at general excavation, site prep, trenching, pipelaying, dozing and backfilling, especially when work space is at a premium.”
Integrated Noise and Dust Reduction: Quiet operation, easy maintenance
New Holland’s INDR (Integrated Noise and Dust Reduction) system is unique and makes the E55BX quieter than many compact excavators. The INDR system efficiently manages incoming and outgoing air to attain superior system cooling and maximum particulate filtration while reducing noise emissions by up to 9 dBA.
The system not only reduces operating noise and improves air filtration, it also lowers overall operating costs. The INDR filter is installed in front of the radiator for premium air filtration, noise reduction and easy daily maintenance. To clean it, the filter can simply be removed and blown with compressed air. There’s no need for direct cleaning of the radiator.
Fuel saving modes: Up to 23% fuel consumption savings
The E55BX can be operated in three modes: “L” mode (low idle), “S” mode (fuel-saving mode) and “H” mode (High idle). When operating in “S mode” it achieves a 23% reduction in fuel consumption compared to “H” mode operation.
Downward exhaust: Protection for plants and structures
Due to its compact size, a mini-excavator is often used to work on job sites close to plants and delicate structures that can be damaged by heated exhaust gases. By engaging the “+E” option, heated exhaust gases from the E55BX are discharged downward under the machine instead of beside it. A diffusion muffler is in place so exhaust gas cannot be forcefully released.
Optional LCD monitor: displays operational functions
An optional LCD monitor displays maintenance management functions, and lets the operator easily see the fuel gauge and water temperature, and alerts the operator as to when engine oil, fuel filter, hydraulic oil filter and hydraulic oil need to be replaced. The operational achievement of the past three months is also displayed on the easy-to-read screen.
