Bobcat attachments enjoy a day at the beach

A number of Bobcat attachments were recently put through their paces at a customer event on Blackpool beach.

Norwest Plant, the authorised Bobcat and Doosan dealer for north west England and north Wales, demonstrated products – including the new Bobcat SC200 Sand Cleaner – as part of an event organised in collaboration with Doosan Bobcat EMEA.

The SC200 is compatible with both the standard and high flow versions of the Bobcat T590, T650, T770 and T870 compact tracked loader models.

An audience including Blackpool Council personnel, local construction contractors and equipment rental firms, saw the sand cleaner, mounted on a Bobcat T590, working for several hours, picking up litter, stones and seaweed.

Jonathan Campbell, general manager of Norwest Plant said, “As well as the sand cleaner, we also presented laser grader, landscape rake, planer, sweeper, industrial grapple, farm grapple, dumping hopper, pallet fork, hydraulic clamp and breaker attachments from Bobcat and a range of other Bobcat tool carriers including the S70 skid-steer loader, E10 and E26 compact excavators and the T36120SL 12m telehandler.

“Despite attachments being the order of the day, we managed to secure several machine orders which was particularly pleasing.  The results garnered are a testament to the hard work that my team put in to making this event happen at such an iconic venue.”

The Blackpool Beach police tried out the Bobcat E26 in a competition, with footage available on Facebook and Twitter.
