Life’s a beach for new Bobcat attachment

A Bobcat SC200 sand cleaner attachment that can be used on both wet and dry surfaces has been called into action in river beach areas in Portugal.

The fluvial beaches are located near the Douro River in the Gondomar Municipality to the east of Porto. Bobcat said the SC200 provides a “more comfortable and efficient” cleaning solution and is being used in conjunction with the brand’s T590 compact track loader.

José Dias, who is responsible for providing the beach cleaning service said, “The sand cleaner attachment from Bobcat is an excellent piece of equipment that has brought great gains in terms of efficiency, effectiveness and quality in the cleaning work. With the new Bobcat sand cleaner, the work is done faster and saves on resources.”

The attachment is used to clean several riverside beaches, covering a total area of ​​about 45,000 m2. José Dias added, “The cleaning service was previously carried out by a small sand cleaning machine, about 30-years-old and with very low performance, so we have improved service, productivity and profitability as well.”

Bobcat said the machine boasts a working width of 1900mm and a working depth of up to 200mm. The cleaner can pick up cigarette stubs and other small debris such as bottle caps, broken glass, cans, stones, rocks, plastic bags, syringes and seaweed.
