Construction Equipment Guide

Featuring a large boom and arm for a wider operating range, the New Holland E55Bx compact excavator delivers 11,240 lb. ft. (50 kN) of bucket digging force. Rated at 39 net hp (29 kW), with an operating weight of 12,295 lbs. (5,577 kg) and a dig depth of 12 ft. 10 in. (3.9 m), the E55Bx delivers enough size and power for tackling various residential construction, underground pipe/electric, landscaping, demolition or commercial construction applications. With a cab height of 8 ft. 4 in. (2.55 m), the compact excavator is easy to transport between job sites.

“Built around our customers’ needs, the New Holland E55Bx compact excavator is reliable, easy to service and comfortable to operate,” said Dave December, marketing manager, New Holland Construction. “This machine is small enough for confined spaces, but has all the muscle, performance and productivity you’d expect from a mid-sized excavator.”


The E55Bx includes the same design features found on larger New Holland excavators. The boom, arm and swing bracket on the new compact excavator feature large cross-section segments for greater attachment strength. The lower structure extends to the sprockets, which reinforces the tracks and undercarriage at the optimal points. To match ground conditions, both rubber and steel tracks are available for the E55Bx excavator.

Maintenance, Productivity

“New Holland makes it easy to perform routine maintenance,” December said. “Wide doors and easy access to valves on the E55Bx makes it easy to perform all start-up checks at ground level.”

The radiator features a new intake method that helps prevent clogging and makes cleaning simple and easy. In the event of an unexpected engine shutdown, a “no tools” fuel-tank drain valve and accumulator allows attachments to be safely lowered using in-cab controls. An easy-access electrical compartment beneath the seat also can be checked outside the cab at ground level.

The E55Bx includes a standard dozer blade — featuring an increased 38-degree approach angle — for finish grading. For increased backfill and grading ability, an optional four-way dozer blade also is available. A variety of attachments also are available, including buckets, hammers and augers. The 19.8 gal. (75L) fuel tank extends operation time between refueling, keeping the New Holland E55Bx on the job longer.

Personalized Operator Comfort

“New Holland puts the operator first, setting the standard for comfort in the industry,” December said. “We designed the new E55Bx with the operator in mind, which includes individualized comfort settings, improved visibility to the front, sides and rear, and ergonomically placed controls and gauges.”

The large ROPS/FOPS cab features a larger front window and wider rear window for added visibility. Standard air conditioning provides all-day comfort for the operator.

Full Line of New Holland Excavators

In addition to the E55Bx, the New Holland compact excavator product line includes the E18B, E27B, E35B and E50B. New Holland also offers a full range of mid and full-sized excavators.
