At Samoter 2020, Bobcat will present the latest additions to the company’s world-leading full-liner range of compact equipment including wheeled and track loaders, mini-excavators, telehandlers and attachments, under the themes of Technology, Innovation and Efficiency. The stand will show solutions in every customer sector from construction, roadwork, rental and demolition to waste and recycling, material handling and landscaping.
There are many firsts for Bobcat at Samoter:
First Showing of New Stage V Compact Loaders
Enhancing Bobcat’s leadership of the compact loader market in Europe, the company will be launching its new Stage V compact track loaders at Samoter, alongside the recently launched Stage V M-Series S450, S510 and S530 skid-steer loaders. Bobcat will also preview the company’s larger R-Series loaders being launched later in 2020, representing a new approach to designing skid-steer and compact track loaders from Bobcat.
The new loaders are the first models in the Bobcat compact equipment range in Europe to have the company’s new machine styling scheme, which includes 3D decals for the first time. The new M-Series and R-Series loaders provide operators with increased performance, enhanced comfort and optimised maintenance requirements to maximise job site efficiency.
First Appearance of New ‘Waste Expert’ Telescopic Loaders
Also being shown for the first time at Samoter is the new TL43.80HF ‘Waste Expert’ telescopic loader. Together with the TL35.70, TL34.65HF and TL38.70HF models, the TL43.80HF is one of four of Bobcat’s current productivity and high-flow telescopic loaders that are now being offered as Waste Expert machines. Powered by Bobcat Stage IV 100 or 130 HP engines, these new Waste Expert models offer lifting capacities from 3.4 to 4.3 tonne and lifting heights from 6.5 to 8 m.
Recycling and waste management sites are tough working environments so the equipment they use needs to be up to the challenge. As a result, the new Waste Expert machines are even more robust, with heavy-duty Dana Spicer axles and additional reinforced protection, making them the toughest on the market.
E10e Electric Mini-Excavator’s first appearance at Samoter
Another product being shown for the first time at Samoter is the new E10e Electric Mini-Excavator, the industry’s first battery-powered, zero tail swing mini-excavator in the one tonne class. The E10e answers a customer need for a zero emission and low noise tool for indoor work. The design of the battery-powered E10e is based on Bobcat’s conventional E10z mini-excavator, the market leader in the 1 tonne class. The E10e forms part of a comprehensive display of mini-excavators that includes the E17z, E27z, E35z, E45 and E57W models from Bobcat.
Industry-Leading Innovations from Bobcat
- A-SAC: Advanced Selectable Auxiliary Control System
The new R-Series 2-4 tonne mini-excavators from Bobcat make their first appearance at this Samoter. The R-Series offers the best combination of excellent visibility, high digging forces, outstanding stability and precise controllability in this category. Bobcat will also be previewing the new award-winning A-SAC Advanced Selectable Auxiliary Control system, which will be available later in 2020 on all R-series mini-excavators.
The A-SAC system is a unique solution developed by Bobcat that enables operators to customize control patterns of auxiliary hydraulic circuits on Bobcat excavators, depending on their set-up preferences for using hydraulic attachments. Using the A-SAC system, the operator can easily customize the settings for up to seven different attachments or applications. This leads to higher productivity and saves time and money that would otherwise be lost through having to get used to new working modes or machine customization.
- Remote Control System for Bobcat Compact Loaders
Bobcat will also show the company’s new advanced Remote Control System for Bobcat compact loaders for the first time at Samoter, the first original ‘Plug&Play’ product of its type as an alternative to add-on developments from third parties. The Remote Control System is one of many new Bobcat attachments on the stand, including the launch of a new Soil & Asphalt Paver and others such as wheelsaws, planers, graders, mixing buckets and a sand cleaner.
- Bobcat S70 Quad-Tracked Loader Concept
The Bobcat S70 quad-tracked loader concept machine will be shown for the first time at Samoter, featuring quad-tracks that are bolted on to the frame of Bobcat skid-steer loaders. The bolt-on/bolt-off design of the quad tracks adds versatility to machines to adapt to the environment and applications they are working in.
- Bobcat MaxControl Concept
Another exciting Bobcat concept development at Samoter will be the Bobcat MaxControl system, which provides a new iOS(Apple) based plug and play remote control solution that uses a smartphone to control Bobcat loaders. With its similarity to gaming joysticks or an Xbox controller, MaxControl ensures operators have a tactile feel when remotely operating Bobcat loaders.
