Bobcat launch new Pressure Washer Attachment for their loader range
Bobcat has launched the new Pressure Washer Attachment for Bobcat loaders, joining the Bobcat family of over 100 different kinds of original attachments. Bobcat is the world's first manufacturer to offer this kind of attachment for skid-steer, compact track and all wheel steer loaders on the market.
Designed to spray high pressure water on city streets, roads or any other suitable surfaces, the plug&play design of the new Pressure Washer Attachment provides total peace of mind. This ensures it is quick and easy to connect it to the Bobcat loader, allowing the operator to begin work with the new attachment immediately.
The compact dimensions of the new attachment guarantee maximum efficiency and simplify transportation requirements, whilst the front sprayer is adjustable to easily adapt to all types of work.
Wide Range of Applications
There are three different Pressure Washer Attachment models - the 250S, 250M and 250L - to match different Bobcat loaders and to meet the specific requirements of the many different applications for the attachment which include:
- Roadwork and construction
- Disinfecting to protect against Covid-19 or any other kind of sanitization
- Cleaning furniture in parks and urban streets
- Maintaining railways, bridges and tunnels
- Cleaning animal or poultry sheds
- Cleaning many types of machinery
Daniele Paciotti, Product Line Manager Attachments Bobcat in Europe, the Middle East and Africa, said: “Bobcat is now offering a Pressure Washer Attachment that ensures that cleaning streets, signs and street furniture has never been so easy and effective. Wherever much larger dedicated machines cannot gain access or where the job must be done mechanically – the new Pressure Washer Attachment mounted on a Bobcat loader is the best way to clean surfaces. Excellent results can also be achieved when cleaning façades and roofs, to clear waste and moss/lichen, for example.”
The new attachment is also very versatile, as the operator can either operate the sprayer from the cab or with a handgun for more targeted high-pressure water cleaning or sanitization of various objects.
Daniele Paciotti added: “The washing handgun and accompanying 20 m hose reel provide an easy switch from the front sprayer to handheld washing, providing an alternative solution for cleaning apartment entrances, corners, statues, machines, cars, benches, signs or in any tight spaces.”
The 250S Pressure Washer model is intended for the Bobcat S100 skid-steer loader. Next in the range is the 250M model, which is approved for use on all Bobcat skid-steer loaders from the S450 to the S650 model and the T450, T590 and T650 track loaders. The third model, the 250L, is designed for use with the S630, S650, S770 and S850 skid-steer loaders and the T590, T650, T770 and T870 compact track loaders. To work with the Pressure Washer Attachments, all the loaders except for the S100 must be equipped with the Bobcat Attachment Control Kit which is standard on the high flow machines.
Transforming Hydraulic Power into Pressurized Water
Working closely with the supplier, a Finish based company, Dynaset, Bobcat is now providing a Pressure Washer Attachment that is simple and effective, transforming the hydraulic power of the loader to pressurized water without any loss of power. This simplicity is also key to the ease-of-use and low maintenance of the attachment, ensuring increased uptime and more working hours.
Other product features include the Floating Front Wheel, which allows the Pressure Washer to work more smoothly and faster. As well as ease-of-use, the new Pressure Washer is also simple to clean, getting jobs done more quickly and safely with consistent results. The absence of rotating parts in the High Pressure Pump increases durability and ensures low maintenance requirements.
