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, according to the manufacturer.

“If you work in tight areas, and you need straight-out digging performance, the E55BX short radius mini-excavator fits the bill,” said 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 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, according to the manufacturer.

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

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 percent reduction in fuel consumption compared to “H” mode operation.

Downward Exhaust

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

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 also is displayed on the easy-to-read screen.
