Grab and grade with the Pro Clamp system

New clamp system offers grading tool to maximize excavator efficiency

Bobcat Pro Clamp system

Bobcat Pro Clamp system

The new Pro Clamp™ system from Bobcat Company can grab large, odd-shaped material and efficiently perform grades — often on the same job — and is approved for use with eight Bobcat® excavators.

With the Pro Clamp system you can also turn an excavator into a rough or finish grader, as well as a backfilling and leveling machine. The Pro Clamp system consists of a base that attaches to the excavator arm and is equipped with pin-on adjustable standard tool or reversible grading tool. Both tools can be easily removed if desired to maximize visibility into trenches and provide unlimited bucket curl, for example, when reaching above truck height when loading material.

1. Grab larger material

The standard tool’s adjustable design allows it to be pinned in a position that provides traditional grabbing performance similar to the existing Bobcat excavator clamp. For greater performance, it can also be pinned at a higher point on the base to provide a wider jaw and more aggressive grabbing action for handling bigger material such as larger-diameter utility pipe, boulders and logs. The tool also offers greater range to follow the bucket farther toward material rollout.

2. Clean trenches faster

The 24-inch Pro Clamp grading tool is reversible, allowing for dual functionality.

With the grading tool pinned in the forward position, it provides a smooth cutting edge on the bottom of a trench that eliminates the need for a second smooth-lip bucket. This allows you to dig with cutting teeth while still maintaining the ability to get a smooth flat trench. When the grading tool is pinned in the reverse position, it is designed for faster transitions from cleanup areas to dump trucks by removing spoil piles quicker and reducing manual shoveling.

3. Expand your versatility

Designed for optimum functionality, the reversible Pro Clamp system conveniently pairs with buckets to give you greater versatility for a wide range of applications:

  • • Construction and demolition
  • • Site development
  • • Logging operations
  • • Landscaping
  • • Utility installation and repair
  • • Property maintenance
