Advanced Hydraulic Components:
Consistent Control. Predictable Performance.
The same Bobcat-exclusive control valves that deliver smooth operation also provide a predictable workgroup. With Bobcat excavators, you can confidently make precise movements in tight-fitting areas.
There’s a huge difference between published specs and real-world testing. Bobcat Advantage® puts the industry’s top compact equipment brands in tough challenges to show you the differences. Objective tests and competitive comparisons measure up Bobcat®, Caterpillar®, John Deere®, and Kubota® machines.
Controls on excavators should give skilled operators the ability to perform many functions at the same time. A skilled operator can offset, move the machine, plus run the attachment and work group at the same time. That’s why Bobcat® compact (mini) excavators have been designed with fingertip controls. Control boom swing, auxiliaries and angle blade functions with your fingertips. Caterpillar®, John Deere®, and Kubota® place important functions on the floor where they’re in the way and tougher to operate with precision. Review the test results to see why Bobcat’s design is best.
