There’s a big difference between genuine Bobcat attachments and other brands. Bobcat attachments are stronger and better built to help you be more productive, meaning you can get more work done than you can with other attachments.

What really sets Bobcat attachments apart from others is the engineering, manufacturing and dealer support after the sale. Regardless of the market segment or application, there are significant advantages to operating Bobcat attachments, ensuring you’re getting the most out of your Bobcat tool carrier.

50+ years of attachment development

Since the first Bobcat compact loader more than 50 years ago, Bobcat has invested significant resources to build the best attachments for its compact equipment. That includes gathering feedback from customers to make continuous improvements to attachments. A majority of Bobcat attachments are built in Litchfield, Minn., and sold through 600 Bobcat dealers across the United States and Canada.

No compact equipment company manufactures more attachments, more models and more options than Bobcat. Bobcat offers more than 75 unique attachments with hundreds of models and options to choose from. Additionally, Bobcat has a growing line of 3-point hitch implements for use with its compact tractors and Toolcat 5610 utility work machines.

Designed for success

Bobcat attachments are designed for use with Bobcat compact equipment, but thanks to the Bob-Tach® attachment mounting system — invented by Bobcat Company in 1970, and now the industry standard globally — attachments are compatible with other brands of compact equipment. Some may require minor modifications, such as longer hydraulic hoses, but many Bobcat attachments can be operated with other loader brands. The Power Bob-Tach mounting system makes attachment changes even simpler by allowing the operator to change non-hydraulic attachments without leaving the loader cab. Simply press a button to raise or lower the Bob-Tach levers to mount or dismount attachments.

Higher utilization

Some Bobcat attachments may be used across multiple lines of tool carriers, further increasing the attachment utilization rate. Common examples are Bobcat augers and hydraulic breakers. The same model of auger or hydraulic breaker may be operated with a skid-steer loader, compact excavator or telehandler. Additionally, some mini track loader attachments may be used with skid-steer or compact track loaders.
