Bobcat says new attachment paves way for smooth finishes

BOBCAT has introduced a new soil and asphalt spreader attachment, designed for tasks including creating pavements, widening roads and covering trenches.

The model has been approved for use on all Bobcat skid-steer loaders from and including the S450 to the S850/H models, compact track loaders including the T450, T590/H, T650/H, T770/H and T870/H models and the A770/H all-wheel steer loader

The attachment has been described as boasting a relatively low weight for transport purposes and a more compact design compared to larger, dedicated machines for spreading soil or asphalt.

Features include hydraulic side shift and adjustable side wings to guide materials, an offset feature to avoid passing over laid asphalt, and an optional third side wing kit available for special applications.

The spreader has an operating weight of 675kg and a standard operating width of 190cm or optional width of 196cm. Mounted on Bobcat compact loaders, the attachment works with an average working speed of 50-120 m/minrequiring an oil flow of 45 l/min and an operating pressure of 250 bar.
