Attachments for Toolcat utility work machines

For nearly a decade, Bobcat Company has “wowed” customers with exclusive Toolcat utility work machines.

There’s still nothing quite like Toolcat utility work machines, with two models to choose from: the 5600 and 5610. Both models are compatible with more than three dozen front-mounted Bobcat® attachments. Additionally, the 5610 may be used with numerous Bobcat 3-point hitch implements.

Particularly popular with grounds maintenance professionals and municipalities, Toolcat machines are multi-taskers. With an attachment on the front and one in the cargo box (5600) or mounted to the 3-point hitch for the 5610, Toolcat machines can accomplish more than one task. This is particularly useful for snow removal with a blade, snowblower or snow pusher on the front, and a spreader in the cargo box, or for site preparation, a grapple on the front of the 5610 and a rotary cutter on the back.

Agriculture

For some agriculture producers, Toolcat utility work machines do work that was previously done with two or three machines. They’ve replaced a utility vehicle, compact tractor and loader with one machine. On farms, Toolcat machines can dig new holes for fence posts. They can lift and carry materials with a pallet fork. Clear unwanted or overgrown brush with a mower or rotary cutter. And can lift and carry bales with a bale fork. All of this can be done from the comfort of an enclosed cab with heat and air conditioning.

Buildings and Grounds

Toolcat machines are sometimes referred to as a grounds maintenance professional’s “dream machine.” The reason is because of the versatility of the machines and attachments. What once took a whole crew with hand tools or with larger, dedicated machines, can be done by a multi-purpose 5600 or 5610 with attachments.

Clearing snow in winter couldn’t be easier with a Toolcat 5600 or 5610 and an angle broom, snow blade, snowblower, snow pusher, bucket and spreader. Because of the Toolcat machine’s compact size, it’s effective at snow removal in areas such as parking garages, parking lots, walking paths or sidewalks, particularly on college and university campuses. Some universities have invested in an army of a dozen or more Toolcat machines for not only snow removal but year-round maintenance.

During spring, summer and fall, grounds maintenance professionals put Toolcat machines and attachments to work by digging holes with an auger; fixing sod or planting new seed with a seeder; mowing; removing stumps with a stump grinder; and light construction with a dozer blade, combination bucket or trencher. The possibilities are virtually endless with Toolcat machines and attachments.

Expanded utility vehicle versatility

A few years ago, Bobcat Company extended its attachment mounting expertise to its utility vehicles. The Bobcat 3450 utility vehicle equipped with the RapidLink attachment mounting system may be operated with one of three front-mounted Bobcat attachments. They include a bucket, pallet fork and snow blade. Additionally, a 40-gallon tank fits in utility vehicle cargo boxes to apply ice-melting products or to broadcast spraying of liquid fertilizers and chemicals.
