At The Utility Expo, Bobcat will showcase an expansive product lineup including its latest technological advancements for compact equipment.
Now in concept form, Bobcat will demonstrate the capabilities of its collision warning and avoidance system designed to assist operators’ jobsite awareness.
Compatible on select Bobcat compact track loaders and skid-steers, the technology tracks an objects’ position, direction and speed relative to the machine. Using either the active or passive setting, the operator can receive an audible alert or enable the machine to automatically stop upon detecting an object in its path.
While still in product development, the collision warning and avoidance system is expected to be available to customers in 2024. Customers at The Utility Expo can take part in a guided demonstration of this technology through an interactive display.
Advanced display technology
Attendees can experience Bobcat’s advanced display technology concept with a transparent, touch display. The tech allows operators to look through display information to seamlessly view both the jobsite and operation information.
The concept display can be positioned on the front windshield or on a cab side window on a variety of Bobcat machines, including compact excavators, telehandlers and loaders. The display was designed to enhance operator productivity, focus and efficiency for the task at hand.
Bobcat will also display its depth check system on an E35 compact excavator. The system allows operators to accurately measure depth and grade without exiting the machine. The technology allows for precise digging performance with an accuracy of about 1 cm, which helps reduce over-digging. Depth check is available on several Bobcat compact excavator models with standard or long-arm configurations.
Bobcat platinum packages
Bobcat’s latest Platinum machines will be on display at The Utility Expo. Bobcat’s Platinum equipment combines technology options with comfort features to offer operators a premium experience.
The Platinum package is available on select loaders and compact excavators with new, limited-edition models introduced annually.
