The 1 m planer, part of the range of planer attachments for Bobcat compact loaders, is designed for a range of applications from milling surfaces to repairing potholes and cracksNew upgrades to Bobcat 1 m Planer and Wheel Saws plus new grinders

Bobcat has enhanced the company’s 1 m planer attachment as well as the complete line of Bobcat wheel saw attachments. The upgrades include a new hydraulic valve and a new ACD controller.

The 1 m planer, part of the range of planer attachments for Bobcat compact loaders, is designed for a range of applications from milling surfaces to repairing potholes and cracks, ice damage and for work around manholes. Other applications include matching uneven pavement surfaces; producing vertical edges for pavement repairs; cutting drainage in parking lots and for tapering edges of roadways. The planers are also ideal for finishing jobs around larger milling machines and for work on bridges, walkways, garage lots and in other confined areas.

The wheel saws can be used, among other applications, for creating excavation sites, for slot cutting and maintenance work, including trenching vertical edges for road and pavement repairs.

The design of the new hydraulic valve in the 1 m planer attachment and wheel saws allows a higher net hydraulic horsepower to be delivered to the attachments, increasing their performance and productivity.

The new valve also diverts hydraulic oil flow to depth functions without causing a loss of power to the drum or wheel, allowing the operator to make depth or position adjustments with the attachments in operation, without affecting performance.

A new instrument panel available for the Bobcat S630, S650, and S850 skid-steer loaders and the &650 and T87- compact tracked loaders allow owners and operators to monitor operating hours and maintenance intervals on their planers and wheel saws The new panel tracks cumulative operating hours and has two clocks that can be reset to monitor items such as time on the job, cutting bit life and hours between drive motor oil maintenance.

Bobcat has launched a new range of rotary grinder attachments for the company’s compact loaders and excavators aimed at a wide range of construction, demolition and utility industry applications.

The new Bobcat rotary grinders are powerful attachments that consist of a double drum, driven by a completely integrated high-torque hydraulic motor. Rotary grinders

The new Bobcat rotary grinders are powerful attachments that consist of a double drum, driven by a completely integrated high-torque hydraulic motor. Bobcat claim that the new grinders are quieter in operation compared to equivalent hydraulic or pneumatic demolition tools, and still grind powerfully in concrete, asphalt or rock.

The design of the new grinding attachments allows them to be used for applications requiring precise removal of material, without damaging adjacent structures. They can also be used for less precise work such as the demolition of walls and other structures; for digging trenches in hard and rocky ground and for preparing asphalt or concrete surfaces for repair.

The three models in the range, the RG20, RG40 and RG60 grinders, provide a choice of cuttings widths and are suitable for use on the larger Bobcat loaders and excavators.

The RG20 grinder has a standard cutting width of 565 mm; the RG40 grinder has a standard cutting width of 625 mm and the RG60 grinder, cuts to a width of 850 mm and can be used on the Bobcat S770H, T770H,and larger compact loaders.

The use of these rotary grinders requires the installation of a special applications kit on the machines and can be mounted on Bobcat excavators with Pin-on, Klac or Lehnhoff systems. For Bobcat compact loaders, a Bob-Tach bolt-on frame is used.
