Bobcat E10z and E26mini-excavators in our early product development and the arrival of the newE45modelwill help us to develop newand innovative products.”

FirstUse of BobcatDepth Check System in theUK

Aswell as demonstrating the latest generation of ShoreTrench systems, the newE45mini- excavator is the first Bobcatmini-excavator in the UK to feature the company’s Depth Check system. The latter provides an electronic depth gauge on the Bobcat E45 that allows the operator to dig to a depthwithout requiring an engineerwith a laser setting the line,making site operationsmore efficient and reducing the need for additional personnel.

GlennMolyneux added: “Using technology such as the Depth Check systemon the newBobcat E45will allowus to continue development of our innovative ShoreTrench products. The Bobcat Depth Check Systemis exclusive to Bobcat excavators and allows the operator to achieve an accurate grade every timewithout leaving the cab. The operator simply has to set thewidth and depth of the trench support unit into the systemand choose the rightwidth bucket.”

GarryWheawall of Norwest Plant said: “I’ve known Glenn for over six years and he’s bought several Bobcatmachines in the past.We had discussed at length howthe Bobcat Depth Checkworks and the benefits it could offer their

continued development of ShoreTrench products. I’mpleased to be able to provide an innovative solution to help progress the ShoreTrench range - it’s also great that it’s the first in the UK.”

The Bobcat Depth Check systemutilises three sensors, one on the bucket, one on the armand one on the base of the boom. All three sensors read the exact position of the attachment, boom and armand constantly send and process data to the control panel that shows on the Bobcat Deluxe Display Screen in the cab of the E45. The processed information gives the operator visual and audible signals to guide themto either sustain or achieve a desired dig depth or grade.

The Bobcat Depth Check Systemis efficient and easy to use. It is a Bobcat dealer-installed accessory for select Bobcatmini-excavators (namely the E34 through E85models)with deluxe instrumentation. It is compatiblewith both the standard-armand long-arm configurations of Bobcatmini-excavators. The many uses for the systeminclude trenching utility lines; placing drainage ditches; digging basements; installing sewer lines and drain fields and preparing sites for footings or pads.

GlennMolyneux said: “Our ambition is tomake all trench shoring activity safer,more productive andmore efficient and using the Bobcat E45will help us to achieve that.Workingwith Norwest Plant and Bobcat is helping us to continue to develop innovative solutions for the

construction and engineering industry.”

Comprising the Foundation Unit Trench Support, Drive Over Trench Support and Personnel Access Trench Support, the products in the ShoreTrench range all include a patented interlocking mechanism,which is fast to position using a mini-excavator, and requires no initial assembly and nomanual lifting, aswell as a variety of additional features.
