Josh Duhamel Escapes to the Lake with Bobcat Equipment

Published on April 14, 2023

When he’s not starring in movies or participating in celebrity charity events, Josh Duhamel enjoys escaping to a lake deep in the heart of the Minnesota wilderness. Even when he’s in Los Angeles, his heart is at this place he’s managed to carve out with the help of Bobcat® equipment. He hopes this family getaway he’s built will live on for generations to come. 

When he’s not starring in movies or participating in celebrity charity events, Josh Duhamel enjoys escaping to a lake deep in the heart of the Minnesota wilderness. Even when he’s in Los Angeles, his heart is at this place he’s managed to carve out with the help of Bobcat® equipment. He hopes this family getaway he’s built will live on for generations to come.  

His connection with Bobcat equipment all started with replacing back-breaking pickaxe and shovel work with a Toolcat™ utility work machine. It was so much fun to operate, and progress was so improved that he decided to add a Bobcat compact tractor and then a compact track loader. With the help of this arsenal of equipment and attachments, his place has grown by warp speed over the past couple years.  

Josh has been able to accomplish what many strive for, to hurry up so he can slow down. Here’s to many more generations of moving dirt, catching frogs and making memories at the lake.  

To me this is the thing that I’m most proud of that I’ve built, that I can pass down hopefully for generations.
