Bobcat Adds New Soil & Asphalt Spreader Attachment

Posted: 4 June 2020

To meet increasing demand for road construction and maintenance equipment in the Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region, Bobcat has expanded the company’s Road Products Portfolio with the launch of the new Bobcat Soil & Asphalt Spreader attachment.

The new Soil & Asphalt Spreader attachment is approved for use on all the Bobcat skid-steer loaders from and including the S450 to the S850/H models, all Bobcat compact track loaders including the T450, T590/H, T650/H, T770/H and T870/H models and the A770/H all-wheel steer loader.

Designed to save time and labour costs, the Bobcat Soil & Asphalt Spreader can be used to lay asphalt and other materials to create pavements; to widen and repair existing roads; to backfill, pave over and cover trenches and to lay sub-base materials. Thanks to its offset feature, the new attachment can also lay asphalt without the loader needing to pass over the spread material – thus ensuring an unblemished and smoother finish.

The spreader is easy to use, clean and look after, with a simple design that is key to the low maintenance requirements for the attachment, increasing uptime, consistency and providing more time on the job. The new attachment also provides comfort and productivity with a relatively low weight for transport purposes and maximum effiiciency due to a much more compact design compared to that of larger, dedicated machines for spreading soil or asphalt.

To summarise, the features and benefits of the new Soil & Asphalt Spreader attachment include:

  • Ease of use
  • Manually adjustable thickness of layer materials from 0-100 mm
  • Compact design for maximum efficiency and easy transport
  • Hydraulic side shift and adjustable side wings to guide materials
  • Offset feature to avoid passing over laid asphalt, preserving a smoother finish
  • Lockable, floating transverse tilt up to 5° to compensate for sloping terrain
  • Optional third side wing kit available for special applications

The new Soil & Asphalt Spreader has an operating weight of 675 kg and a standard operating width of 190 cm or optional width of 196 cm. Mounted on Bobcat compact loaders, the new attachment works with an average working speed of 50-120 m/min, requiring an oil flow of 45 l/min and an operating pressure of 250 bar.

Designed for use with Bobcat compact loaders equipped with an Attachment Control Kit [standard on High Flow (H) machines], little set up is required for the Soil & Asphalt Spreader, which like all Bobcat attachments can be combined quickly and safely with Bobcat compact loaders via the quick-change Bob-Tach attachment mounting system.

The Soil & Asphalt Spreader expands the road equipment portfolio available from Bobcat, that includes planers, wheelsaws, graders, trenchers, brooms and sweepers, just part of over 100 different families of attachments available from Bobcat, delivering versatility and time-saving productivity across a huge range of different applications.

All Bobcat attachments are engineering approved, ensuring that they are optimized for efficiency, performance and greater productivity. This results in lower operating and maintenance costs. In addition, products are manufactured to the highest standards, guaranteeing the best quality and meeting, or exceeding, local requirements all around the world.
