Bobcat Reinvents Industry with Innovation at Conexpo 2020

Posted: 2020-03-11

Coming to the show with a bold vision to reinvent the industry and introduce more new products than ever before, Bobcat has a strong presence at this week’s Conexpo Exhibition in Las Vegas, USA, where more than 120,000 visitors are expected to visit what is one of the world’s largest construction equipment fairs.

On the Bobcat Stand Number N10001 in the North Hall at the Las Vegas Convention Center, a specially designed Innovation Stage is spotlighting the latest news and insights about Bobcat’s new products, innovations and vision for the future.

Electrifying Concept Machines

One of the highlights of the Bobcat stand at Conexpo is a trio of electric concept machines: the E17e, an electric/hydraulic excavator; the S70e, an electric/hydraulic loader and the T76e, an all-electric loader.

Bobcat electric prototype machines will be ideal for the indoor demolition market. With zero emissions and a durable lithium-ion battery, they will work just as hard as diesel models with fewer maintenance needs. The fully-electric concept machines have the potential to completely revolutionize the compact equipment industry. Bobcat plans to be the first to engineer an all-electric loader.

New Products for the EMEA Market

Alongside the concept machines, the new products on the Conexpo stand include R-series loaders, set to be launched in Europe later this year. Offering enhanced performance and comfort compared to their predecessors, the new R-Series loaders offer more comfort and less noise and feature a new one-piece cab design and a new LED lighting system for better visibility at night. More detailed, machine operation information is available through the new standard 5-inch and optional 7-inch touch screen displays.

All R-Series loaders feature new cast steel loader arms (20% stronger than the previous fabricated steel design). They also feature a redesigned cooling package in response to demand for higher capacity cooling.

In addition, all R-Series compact track loaders offer high stability thanks to the five-link torsion suspension now incorporated on all the track loader models in the range.

Bobcat MaxControl System

Another exciting Bobcat development at Conexpo is the Bobcat MaxControl system, which provides a new IOS(Apple) based plug and play remote control solution that uses a smartphone to control Bobcat loaders. With its similarity to gaming joysticks or an Xbox controller, MaxControl ensures operators have a tactile feel when remotely operating Bobcat loaders.

For operators using Bobcat MaxControl, it means that there is no need to get in and out of the machine to open gates, park the machine, load it on to a trailer or loading and dumping material. Bobcat MaxControl enables the operator to perform most tasks remotely, that would normally be carried out while sitting inside the machine. The system has been launched on a limited basis in North America and is being tested in the EMEA region.

Other New Developments for EMEA

Since inventing the compact equipment industry, Bobcat has consistently demonstrated its commitment to delivering the best products and services. As the company enters a stage of new product launches and advanced innovation, Bobcat will continue to be a driving force in the industry.

The Bobcat stand at Conexpo provides a great demonstration of the company’s ambition with a wide range of new products and pioneering technologies, that are currently only available for the USA market, but might be coming to the EMEA market in the future, including:

  • Small articulated loaders
  • R series 4-6t mini-excavators
  • E145 and E165 excavators
  • Machine IQ Wireless Communications
  • Features On Demand
