Maximize Profits with Bobcat Concrete Equipment
Bobcat Laser Guided Attachment System
Bobcat® loaders and attachments, especially laser-guided attachments, will save you valuable resources on your next concrete flatwork project.
Demand for more accurate final grades is growing as the cost of materials rises and competition for business increases. Complete rough grades with a hydraulically adjustable attachment such as a six-way dozer blade instead of a bucket. Then, separate yourself from competitors with a laser-guided attachment system. Choose from the box blade or grader attachments to match with a Bobcat skid-steer loader or compact track loader, achieving final grades as precise as ± 1⁄4-in. Even experienced operators cannot be accurate to ± 1⁄4-in. over the entire grade. If you’re off by a half-inch on a 300-ft.-by-300-ft. slab, the extra 138 yards of concrete needed could easily cost more than $13,000. The cost savings could pay for the laser control system based on this example, and over time could pay for the Bobcat loader, too.
Bobcat Concrete Pump Attachment
You can also save money with a Bobcat concrete pump attachment. Instead of hiring a costly pumper truck to deliver the material for you, do it yourself and maximize your profits, not to mention improving your time efficiency. A Bobcat concrete pump attachment moves up to 28 cubic yards of concrete per hour—250 ft. horizontally or two stories up. Forget about wheelbarrows, shovels and planks, not to mention needing fewer finishers because the concrete is flowing at a speed that doesn’t rush workers.
Using a Bobcat concrete pump attachment and loader offers other benefits, such as protecting underground utilities from large concrete trucks and keeping concrete trucks off driveways and sidewalks. For those hard-to-reach areas, hoses can be routed through small openings, under decks, through bushes, across rivers, around trees and buildings and over moguls. Because the pump runs off your Bobcat loader’s hydraulic system, when you’re done pouring you can use the loader for other jobs such as moving building supplies or cleaning the area with a sweeper attachment. You can even use a concrete mixer attachment to mix, transport and pour concrete in limited-access areas.
