What Will Bobcat Do If the Product Fails?

Bobcat will repair or replace any covered part or component that fails because of defects in materials or workmanship. Protection Plus extended warranty customers are required to perform maintenance on the covered machine at regular intervals. Also, Bobcat will not be liable for any damage to the machine caused by the use of non-Bobcat parts.

Terms and Conditions

General Explanation of Coverage
During the applicable period of the Protection Plus extended warranty plan, the authorized Bobcat dealer shall repair or replace, at the option of Bobcat Company, without charge for parts and labor, any covered component of the Bobcat machine which fails because of defects in material or workmanship except as otherwise provided below. The owner of the protected machine agrees to provide the dealer from which the Bobcat machine was purchased with prompt written notice of any defects covered by the Protection Plus extended warranty plan and to allow a reasonable time for replacement or repair. Bobcat may, at its option, request the return of failed parts to a specified destination.

Protection Plus extended warranty is not intended to restore the entire product to like-new condition.
Coverage is limited to the repair or replacement of the failed component and any resulting damaged parts. Other parts removed in the process of repair will be reinstalled as is, unless the customer authorizes the additional cost of replacing such parts at the customer’s expense. A listing of components covered can be found in the “What’s Covered?” section of the corresponding coverage option in the “A Guide to Your Protection Plus Extended Warranty” literature.

Customer Participation and Responsibilities
Fluid analysis is recommended, although not a requirement, to obtain Protection Plus extended warranty coverage. The ideal scenario is to sample fluid at the point of enrollment, at the first recommended interval and then continue throughout the remainder of the Protection Plus extended warranty plan coverage term.

The customer is responsible for ensuring that all recommended preventive maintenance is performed at the specified service intervals as described in the Operation and Maintenance (O&M) Manual. Preventive maintenance includes, but is not limited to, the servicing, adjusting and/or replacing of specific components.

The customer/dealer may be required to provide proof of compliance with the maintenance schedules at the time of failure. Proof may include receipts or copies of work orders or invoices showing the remainder of the Protection Plus extended warranty coverage term.

Note on Emissions
Certain components may qualify for emissions warranty coverage in accordance with the applicable regulations of the United States Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA) and California Air Resources Board (CARB). The emissions warranty is provided by the engine manufacturer and is explained in detail in the machine’s O&M Manual. The emissions warranty statement lists parts that are eligible for emissions warranty. Emissions parts that are covered under Protection Plus warranty but are beyond the term of the emissions warranty are eligible for coverage for the remainder of the Protection Plus extended warranty term.

Powertrain Coverage Limitations
Powertrain components are defined as components used to produce, control or transmit engine horsepower to propel the machine. A listing of powertrain components covered can be found in the “What’s Covered? Powertrain Coverage” section in the “A Guide to Your Protection Plus Extended Warranty” literature. Examples of components NOT covered:
• Undercarriage Components – such as tracks and sprockets on compact track loaders, mini track loaders and mini excavators; axle seals, tires and rims on skid-steer loaders, Toolcat utility work machines and VersaHANDLER telescopic tool carriers; tie rods; steering cylinders; and brake system.
• Hydraulic Components – such as the main control valve, valves directly related to the machine work group, loader hydraulic gear pump, cylinders, fan motor, oil coolers, manifolds, joysticks and quick couplers.
• Engine Attachments – such as the radiator, alternator, starter, water pump, thermostat, air conditioning compressor, flywheel and engine mounts.
• External Hoses, Lines, Fittings and O-Rings – for oil, water and air (except hydrostatic lines and hoses between the drive pump and motor and emission-specific lines and hoses).


THE PROTECTION PLUS EXTENDED WARRANTY PLAN IS IN LIEU OF ALL OTHER WARRANTIES. BOBCAT DISCLAIMS ALL OTHER WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. THE REMEDIES PROVIDED UNDER THE PLAN ARE EXCLUSIVE.
