With Remote Control operation, you control your loader without having to be in the cab. Completely portable, and designed for the worst working environments*, the Radio Remote Control system is installed or removed in minutes for easy use with multiple machines. The system is available for Bobcat skid-steer and compact track loaders equipped with Selectable Joystick Controls (SJC). It’s also compatible with All-Wheel Steer (AWS) loaders.
This is a smart solution for hot, dusty environments or on jobs where you’d rather be outside of the machine. For example, two people are sometimes required for operating attachments such as planers and wheel saws. One person guides the placement of the attachment using hand signals, while the other operates the loader. With the Radio Remote Control System, this same job can be done with one person, and the operator can operate the loader from a distance, free from dust and noise.
The Radio Remote Control System is valuable in approved applications including concrete, demolition, highway and asphalt planing, fire breaks, stump removal, poultry barns, shipping yards, nuclear power plants, foundries, mining, chemical plants and municipalities.
Easily install the radio remote control kit to any remote control ready Bobcat loader. Simply install the receiver and the Control Mode Selector/E-Stop box to the machine using the included magnets. Then connect the harness, remove the rear window (or install the rear window external removal kit), attach the Remote Ready Identification tag and the machine is ready to be operated remotely.
The Radio Remote Control System is completely portable. If you have multiple machines in your fleet, you can remove the remote the system from one machine and attach it to another in minutes. NOTE: Older loader models may require software upgrades. See your Bobcat dealer for more information.
Start the loader engine and operate the drive, lift, tilt and auxiliary hydraulic functions of the loader using the Radio Remote Control Transmitter. The transmitter joystick controls operate similar to loader joystick controls in the ISO control pattern. Easily switch between "REMOTE" control mode and "MACHINE/DIRECT" control mode.
