New Holland Construction’s E55BX short radius mini-excavator is built on a short radius platform with minimal tail swing overhang. It is ideal for working in tight areas and can be used for general excavation, site prep, trenching, pipelaying, dozing, and backfilling.
New Holland’s INDR (integrated noise and dust reduction) system 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 also lowers overall operating costs. The INDR filter is installed in front of the radiator for 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.
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.
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.
