 Bobcat Working For The Future. 

In a world where technology is always evolving, so must the heavy equipment industry. Bobcat is building equipment for the future so that their customers can handle tomorrow’s job site demands while reducing emissions. In the recent WorkSaver Magazine issue, Bobcat released a preview into their new electric prototype and concept machines and the first-ever all-electric concept loader. In the magazine, Britta Kopp, marketing manager of innovation at Bobcat noted, "Being environmentally conscious and seeing industries that are highly regulated with emissions, we know there's a need for electric machines in the industry."

 

Electric Prototype Machines

Two electric prototype machines they are working on are the E17e Electric Prototype Excavator and the S70e Electric Prototype Loader. These two machines are designed to fit through doorways so that you can take on indoor demolition projects and urban development jobs.

They also feature a battery-electric power train with traditional hydraulics. Bobcats' goal is to deliver the same performance, uptime, versatility, and comfort that comes with their other equipment but with zero emissions and lower noise levels.

 

The First Fully Electric- Loader 

Although Bobcat isn't the first to offer electric solutions in the heavy equipment industry, they are the first to develop an all-electric machine. This fully electric concept machine is the T76e loader. 

One major innovation of the T76e is that they have traded the traditional hydraulic and diesel system with electronic mechanics to provide the horsepower and performance. 

 

Battery Life

One concern is the battery life of these electric machines. Bobcat has included a "cutting-edge durable lithium battery technology that can, in most applications, go an entire workday before charging is necessary." When you combine the battery life with the other features, attachments, and durability of Bobcat Equipment, it will undoubtedly be the foundation for innovations that follow in the compact equipment industry. These intelligent will machines bring improved productivity and enhance precision while also being better for our environment.

Last year Bobcat released it E10e mini excavator. It provides even better performance than the diesel E10 while also being near-silent. It also features zero tail swing, double-acting auxiliary for more advanced attachments, and the ability to pass through standard doors. This machine can last all day and handle your bigger indoor jobs. Just because it is electric doesn't mean you have to give up comfort or durability, this machine truly has it all. You can learn more about this electric mini- excavator here.
