The Bobcat® pressure-relief quick coupler


The Bobcat® pressure-relief quick coupler makes it simple to connect and disconnect auxiliary hydraulic lines under pressure.

Today's Bobcat loaders offer an easy way. When connecting: Push the quick couplers tightly together and hold for five seconds; the pressure is automatically released as the couplers are installed. When disconnecting: Push the quick couplers tightly together and hold for five seconds; then retract the sleeve until the couplers disconnect. The five second time frame returns a small amount of hydraulic fluid to the reservoir. With less fluid in the lines, connecting and disconnecting couplers is a simple task.



The Power Bob-Tach™ system


The Power Bob-Tach™ system allows you to change attachments that don’t require auxiliary hydraulics without leaving the comfort of your cab.

This hydraulic option is especially popular with heated or air conditioned cabs. To hook up to an attachment, you simply push and hold a switch and the two pins securing the attachment to the Bob-Tach frame drop into place for a fast, solid connection. To unhook from the attachment, push and hold the switch again and the pins retract, disconnecting the tool from the Bob-Tach frame.
