BOBCAT – Time tested and iconic

Published: July 12th, 2013

T650_Multi_Product_Knock_OutThe inclusion of the Bobcat range gives AB Equipment a real edge in a sector, where the company has enjoyed  some success in the past. It’s called ‘The Bobcat Advantage’ and the line-up represents true value for money across a wide range of compact excavators, compact track and skid steer loaders and utility vehicles.


E50_ExcavatorThe Bobcat excavators may look small but their size can be deceiving. Mini MSeries excavators are powerful  digging machines with advanced hydraulic systems that can often outperform larger machines. Some new features include auto shift travel; auto idle and fingertip controls. Add to that the reduced noise levels, improved climate control and new X-frame for better ground clearance, it becomes easy to see at a glance that these machines are both comfortable for the operator and productive for the owner.


The reputation and time-tested popularity of the Bobcat name has been firmly cemented in history when it comes to skid steer loaders, with Bobcats being designed to work more efficiently, lift more, turn faster and dig more. The machines are all about productivity and include features such as a maintenance free chain case, dual path cooling and machine shut down protection to keep an operator on a job. And along with all other Bobcats they do more than just dig, having attachments galore to suit just about every application one can think of and have turned attachment fitting into something of an art form, with systems that allow quick and simple changing according to the varied nature of job requirements.


T650_COMPACT_TRACK_LOADERFor outstanding performance it is difficult to go past the range of Bobcat Compact Track Loaders. They may  weigh more than skid steer loaders of the same size, but thanks to their tracks, machine weight is spread over a wider area enabling increased flotation, minimal ground disturbance, higher pushing force and lifting of larger loads. The M Series is said to be just a treat to operate. Deluxe instrumentation, a larger, more comfortable cab, improved visibility and advanced controls are just some of the features that help Bobcat redefine the term, operator friendly.
