In fact, there are more than 50 unique Bobcat attachments designed for use with Bobcat loaders. Whether you own Bobcat attachments, rent them or both, there’s so much more you can accomplish with Bobcat loaders paired with attachments. Even better are newer M-Series loaders that have improved visibility to the attachment and work area, thanks to the cab-forward design.

Agriculture

For agriculture producers who want to maximize the use of their Bobcat loaders, there are a number of applications to pair a loader with labor-saving attachments. Producers may choose from a variety of bucket sizes to load feed into mixers, especially with the extended lift height and visibility of the M-Series loaders. Buckets may also be used to clear manure from inside barns or other areas where larger equipment won’t fit, and then eventually load it into a spreader or truck. A Bobcat bale fork is an efficient way to lift, carry and load hay bales. Bobcat grapple attachments help loader operators move hard-to-handle or loose material; for added grip, they can add one of seven utility fork options.

Buildings and Grounds

Regardless of the location, Bobcat has a large assortment of attachments for grounds maintenance professionals. You’ll find them on college and university campuses — mowing, sweeping, and cleaning walking paths and parking lots, moving materials or landscaping. When snow removal season arrives, Bobcat loaders can be matched with a variety of blades, snowblowers, snow pushers, spreaders or angle brooms to quickly clear snow.

Construction

There are many applications where attachments are used every day in construction, from concrete and asphalt to demolition, excavating and grading to lifting and moving materials, and site preparation to trenching. For years Bobcat loaders and attachments have been the backbone of construction companies and their compact equipment fleets.

Bobcat specializes in manufacturing many construction-related attachments such as planers for milling asphalt and concrete in places where larger milling equipment cannot fit. Another example is breaking concrete, then lifting, carrying and dumping it into a truck for removal. Laser-guided attachments such as box blades and graders have precise mechanisms to minimize concrete for flatwork, saving considerable money in materials. A six-way dozer blade can angle up to 30 degrees for leveling, piling and grading loose dirt, gravel and sand.

Site preparation doesn’t always require heavy equipment. A number of Bobcat attachments can handle many land-clearing tasks such as removing unwanted trees or overgrown brush with a powerful forestry cutter. Rotary cutters, flail cutters and brush saws are also useful for removing unwanted overgrown brush and saplings. Bobcat also offers stump grinders for removing stumps and a brush chipper to turn trees into mulch.

Landscaping

Attachments have changed the way landscapers work, helping them minimize manual labor and digging with shovels. Tasks like planting trees can be done more easily with an auger; lifting and carrying small trees with a tree fork; or transplanting trees with a tree spade. Preparing soil is much simpler, too. It’s done with any number of soil conditioning attachments such as a landscape rake which prepares soil by raking it and collecting surface debris to smooth and level the soil. A soil conditioner pulverizes the dirt to prepare for new seed or sod. And when it’s time to plant seed or lay sod, Bobcat has attachments for those tasks, too. The Bobcat seeder attachment has a 4-bushel hopper and 72-inch seeding width.
