Both new machines are intended to mount the most powerful attachments that are available from Bobcat, such as wheelsaws, along with other high productivity equipment. They also offer significantly improved visibility, class leading comfort, greater pushing power and hydraulic power, increased fuel capacity and more uptime protection, says the company.
