A Bobcat vehicle clears snow

Bobcat winter maintenance range continues to expand

Published:  26 October, 2015

The Bobcat range of products for winter maintenance has expanded to include the S450 skid-steer loader and T450 compact tracked loader.

The two machines feature the same new generation cab design used on all larger new generation Bobcat compact loaders. Hydraulic performance has been increased in both models and, like all Bobcat loaders, they are equipped as standard with the quick-change Bob-Tach attachment mounting frame.

Customers can also choose the optional Power Bob-Tach system to change non-hydraulic attachments simply by flipping a switch inside the cab.

These are now part of a comprehensive choice of tool carriers that can be combined with the Bobcat range of winter weather attachments such as snow blowers, buckets, snow blades and salt and sand spreaders, to provide compact and versatile solutions for dealing with the all types of winter weather.

Applications include clearance of snow and ice on urban and country roads, pavements, car parks, retail outlets and other out-of-town locations, driveways, parks, school playgrounds and sports fields.

Bobcat also offers optional steel tracks to go over the tyres on the wheeled loaders as well as individual tyre snow chains
