Bobcat has introduced its new UW53 and UW56 Toolcat utility work machines. These two refreshed models of Bobcat’s Toolcat utility work machine lineup come equipped with a variety of enhancements.

Replacing the previous models of the Toolcat utility work machine lineup, the UW53 and UW56 allow operators to easily turn their equipment into multi-purpose hauling, lifting, mowing, towing and loading machines.

These new models have redesigned LED lighting, providing increased light dispersion and intensity while using less power. The road lights within the front fenders (instead of on the bottom of the front windshield) provide illumination for better visibility in all directions. Also, the rear work lights have changed to LED to optimize light dispersion.

An update to the dual-drive response system provides smoother acceleration and deceleration, automatically recalling drive response settings. The first setting provides a smooth, responsive traction for driving between tasks, and the second setting changes the drive system to a more aggressive response when operating in low range to maintain hydraulic and traction power for uninterrupted work.

A new optional rear-view camera offers operators better visibility. The rear-frame location of the camera on the UW56 model provides an unobstructed view for connecting a ball hitch.

In addition to these performance enhancements, Bobcat has redesigned the interior of the machines and integrated a 5-inch display.

In terms of maintenance and serviceability, Bobcat included a larger fuel filter, increased the operating time between required oil filter changes, increased corrosion protection, enlarged  in-cab access points and improved the wiring harness.
