Quickly Change Hydraulic Attachments Without Leaving the Compact Loader Cab

WEST FARGO, N.D. (January 2019) – Bobcat Company introduces the new Bobcat® Bob-Dock™ system – a cutting edge, hands-free hydraulic attachment mounting system. The Bob-Dock mounting system is designed for strong, easy and repeatable hydraulic connections, without operators leaving the Bobcat compact loader cab. 

The Bob-Dock system will be available for M2-Series T630, T650, T740 and T770 compact track loaders; S630, S650, S740 and S770 skid-steer loaders; and the A770 all-wheel steer loader. 

“Fleet owners, equipment managers and operators who worry about machine downtime will love the Bob-Dock mounting system because it prevents many common operator errors, like failing to disconnect hydraulic hoses before backing away from an attachment, and the system routes and protects auxiliary hydraulic hoses from tire and track contact,” says Jason Boerger, Bobcat Company marketing manager. “The Bob-Dock system is also going to be a favorite of operators who will appreciate not having to leave their cabs to connect or disconnect hydraulic hoses.” 

How it works

To connect an attachment to a compact loader equipped with the Bob-Dock system, an operator lines up the loader with the attachment’s Bob-Dock adapter plate. The operator then presses the Power Bob-Tach® switch inside the cab. The Bob-Tach system secures the attachment, while the Bob-Dock system automatically connects the hydraulics. The attachment is then ready to use. 

When you’re done using the attachment, retract the Bob-Tach wedges and pull away. The hydraulics instantly release, providing simple, hands-free removal. 

Versatile and made for easy use

If a loader has a Bob-Dock attachment mounting system installed, and the operator wants to use an attachment that lacks a Bob-Dock adapter plate, it’s no problem. While the Bob-Dock™ attachment mounting system’s floating coupler block equips your loader with a hands-free connection point, the standard couplers located on the lift arm remain ready to use. You can utilize the full lineup of approved Bobcat attachments – with or without the Bob-Dock adapter plate attached.
