Bobcat spreads its range with new attachment

The attachment is approved for use on all the Bobcat skid-steer loaders from and including the S450 to the S850/H models, all Bobcat compact track loaders including the T450, T590/H, T650/H, T770/H and T870/H models and the A770/H all-wheel steer loader.


Designed to save time and labour costs, it can be used to lay asphalt and other materials to create pavements, to widen and repair existing road surfaces, to backfill, pave over and cover trenches, and to lay sub-base materials.


Thanks to its offset feature, the new attachment can also lay asphalt without the loader needing to pass over the spread material – thus ensuring an unblemished and smoother finish.


“The spreader is easy to use, clean and look after, with a simple design that is key to the low maintenance requirements for the attachment, increasing uptime, consistency and providing more time on the job,” the company said.


“The new attachment also provides comfort and productivity with a relatively low weight for transport purposes and maximum efficiency due to a much more compact design compared to that of larger, dedicated machines for spreading soil or asphalt.”


Bobcat summarised the features and benefits of the new Soil & Asphalt Spreader, as follow:

  • Ease of use.
  • Manually adjustable thickness of layer materials from 0-100 mm.
  • Compact design for maximum efficiency and easy transport.
  • Hydraulic side shift and adjustable side wings to guide materials.
  • Offset feature to avoid passing over laid asphalt, preserving a smoother finish.
  • Lockable, floating transverse tilt up to 5 deg to compensate for sloping terrain.
  • Optional third side wing kit available for special applications.
