20 March 2019: From fencing to trenching and excavating to loading and cleaning, and even grapples for bales, Bobcat Equipment South Africa will have a full line-up of equipment ideal for the agricultural industry on display at Grain SA’s NAMPO Harvest Day from 14 to 17 May in Bothaville in the Free State.
Bobcat will once again have a significant presence at the Goscor Group stand at this leading event for the farming community, according to National Sales Manager Brian Rachman. “The agricultural industry is an important growth market for Bobcat, and therefore the exposure we obtain by attending this exhibition is very important for our brand visibility.”
The Bobcat B730 is a versatile ‘back-to-basics’ backhoe loader for trenching, breaking, or even materials-handling. Features include a 100 hp turbocharged engine, a powershift transmission as standard, 18" front tyres and two-wheel steer, superior breakout force with double loader bucket cylinders, and reduced maintenance costs due to a bolt-type cylinder head design.
The Bobcat B730 delivers the power that customers need for the most demanding agricultural applications, while reducing operating costs. It features a high-quality filtration system for longer life, while the single-side service components take the effort out of any maintenance or daily checks.
The Bobcat E55 Compact Excavator is ideal for agricultural applications such as fruit farming. This conventional tail-swing model is easy to manoeuvre through tight spaces, increasing its versatility and flexibility. Features include exceptional performance, dig depth, and dump height.
Tier 4-compliant, the E55 is available with a clamp-ready extendable-arm configuration for additional length when fully extended. This allows for extended reach without having to upsize the machine, representing a significant cost-saving for farmers. An angle-blade option is also available.
Bobcat also has a range of auger attachments to dig holes quickly and accurately. Heavy-duty hydraulics make these attachments ideal for any soil conditions. Farmers can choose between a direct-drive auger for an optimum balance between torque and RPM, or a gear-driven planetary auger for applications that require the most torque. Multiple bit types and teeth enhance the flexibility of these attachments even further.
The range of agricultural attachments available from Bobcat extends to buckets, fertilisers, and grain loaders for large-scale agricultural jobs, and grapples and graders for tough forestry work, diggers and drop hammers for construction, concrete mixers for laying down groundwork, or angle brooms for clean-up.
