Since Bobcat Company developed the compact loader in 1958 – and created the compact equipment industry along with it – there are people who mistakenly call any skid-steer loader “a Bobcat.” Well, just like all skid-steer loaders aren’t created equal, not all skid-steer loaders carry the Bobcat brand.
So please only use the word “Bobcat” when referring to genuine Bobcat products. And please only use “Bobcat” as an adjective preceding the genuine Bobcat product you are referencing – like Bobcat skid-steer loader, Bobcat compact track loader or Bobcat mini-excavator. Doing so will ensure your Bobcat brand equipment retains the value you and the industry place on it.
