Bobcat has launched a new range of five sweepers that form part of the company’s comprehensive portfolio of road maintenance attachments.
These versatile sweepers have been approved for usage with different Bobcat tool carriers, including skid-steer and compact track loaders, compact wheel loaders, small articulated loaders and rigid-frame telehandlers. They complement various products for this sector, including planer, wheel saw, soil and asphalt spreader, grader, trencher and angle broom products.
Combined with the growing line-up of Bobcat tool carriers, these provide high-performance solutions for asphalt, concrete, road, pavement surface repair and many other applications.
Not only excelling in road applications, the new Bobcat sweepers cover a wide range of jobs from cleaning, recycling, construction and demolition to many tasks in the agriculture market.
Daniele Paciotti, Bobcat Product Line Manager for Attachments, says: “We now offer the widest portfolio of compact solutions for road repair on the market, providing a choice of products from planers, sweepers and wheel saws to our recently added light compaction line-up.”
According to him, Bobcat sweepers are the perfect attachments for any surface maintenance project. The five sweeper models in the new Bobcat range provide sweeping widths from 110 to 215 cm, with bucket capacities from 0.22 to 0.44 cu m for collection of debris. All model sizes are now available with unified platform features. The new sweepers feature tougher, longer life heavy-duty bristles, and in response to customer feedback, he notes.
Bobcat says it has developed a new optional integrated water tank unit, with a cleverly designed, optimally front-positioned sprinkler system.
Bobcat’s planer attachment range is ideal for repairing not only potholes and surface cracks, but also for milling surfaces and for working around manholes, the wide range of planers from Bobcat covers cutting widths from 35 cm to 120 cm. Other uses include creating cuts for recessed lane markers; matching uneven pavement surfaces; producing vertical edges for pavement repairs; cutting drainage in parking lots and for tapering edges of roadways.
