Bobcat launches new range of grading solutions
New York, June 22, 2013
Bobcat, a leading producer of construction equipment, said it is now offering a new wider range of grading solutions based around the company’s compact loaders and grader attachments.
The new expanded range of grading equipment is designed for use by asphalt and concrete contractors for excavating and grading work for new roads, pavements, concrete flatwork, tennis courts, utilities and landscaping projects.
Loader-mounted Bobcat grader attachments can now be combined not only with a new comprehensive choice of Bobcat laser grading equipment but also the new Bobcat sonic tracer kit, the first sonic tracer system of its kind for compact loaders, to provide automatic grade control in applications where lasers may not be suitable, said a statement from Bobcat.
Laser grading requires the job site to be on a plane, whereas the sonic tracer can follow nearly every terrain. The sonic tracer also provides an advantage when grading inside buildings with obstacles where the laser beam could be interrupted, it stated.
The new Bobcat sonic tracer system also offers the advantage that if the user already has a laser system mounted on the grader, they can also mount the sonic tracer on the blade, allowing them to switch between using the grader with the sonic tracer or the laser system.
The Bobcat sonic tracer kit is designed for use with the new enhanced 274 mm wide HD Grader 108 and 244 mm wide HD Grader 96 heavy duty grader attachments which will also be shown for the first time at Bauma 2013, the company said.-TradeArabia News Service
