Latest products On track with Bobcat


Bobcat’s MT55 is described as a mini tracked loader and is designed for mechanising manual work in confined spaces or sites with restricted access. Powered by a 17.5kW Kubota diesel engine, it has an all-hydrostatic transmission and track drive system and can be fitted with more than 20 grounds care and landscaping attachments, which can be quickly changed using the Bob-Tach mounting system. The direction and speed of the machine is controlled by one


multi-function handle, with the lift and tilt hydraulic functions also being operated by a single hand lever. The front auxiliary hydraulic system for attachments is controlled by the fore/aft movement of this lever. The operator either walks behind the machine, or an optional, removable ride-on platform can be fitted. Bobcat’s T110 compact tracked loader now has a top speed of 13.5km/hour with the availability of a selectable two-speed joystick control option. In addition, a speed management system allows the


In trim with Digbits


Digbits has added two new hedge-trimming attachments to its implement line-up for mini excavators. Produced by Auger Torque, two sizes are available, namely a 1.5m wide model for machines of 1.5-3 tonne, and a 1.8m wide version for 3-5 tonne excavators. Designed


for low


maintenance, the products can cut vegetation up


to 40mm in diameter and have an adjustable head. Combined with the carrier machine’s bucket ram articulation, this enables more precise, angled cuts to be undertaken and means that, within the reach of the excavator, all sides of a hedge can be maintained. The attachments can also be used for ground clearance of weeds and brush.

operator to match travel speed to the specific job requirements, in order to optimise attachment performance and provide precise control in tight areas. Speed can also be pre-set when working with implements such as tillers and trenchers. Measuring 1.2m wide and less than 2.3m long without an attachment, the 2.3 tonne T110 offers a rated operating capacity of 505kg and a tipping load of 1443kg.


Other recent launches from Bobcat, which will be exhibiting at Saltex, include the E45 and E50 compact excavators with respective operating weights of 4634kg and 4905kg respectively, and the S630 and T650 skid steers and the T650 compact tracked loader, which have rated operating capacities of 989kg, 1282kg and 1224kg. These machines were included in the Bauma Review in the June issue of EHN.

Camon’s versatile Workforce Tracmaster’s Saltex line-up will include the Workforce flail mower from the Camon


range of grounds care equipment designed for the hire industry. It can be used with flail, rotary and mulching mower decks in spring and summer, and attachments for sweeping and snow removal can be fitted for autumn and winter clearance tasks. Tracmaster will also highlight the recently launched C8000 rotavator. Its hydraulic


drive means that speed can be varied infinitely to suit prevailing ground conditions. Maximum digging depth is 22.5cm and the machine has a 50cm working width. First displayed as a prototype at the Executive Hire Show last February, the Camon Crusher is now entering full production. Creating a jaw pressure of 18 tons, it can process stone, granite, marble, paving slabs, kerbstones and other common building materials. Maximum jaw capacity is 37 by 40cm and the machine can output crushed material at a rate of up to 2 tons/hour in three different grades. The machine has been developed with


support from Bolton-based Seddons, which is a Camon dealer serving the Midlands and northern England, and which also supplies Honda equipment. “With the involvement of Honda technicians, we helped to evaluate the optimum engine for the machine, and we assessed the tracked carrier base to suit the product’s weight and functionality,” said Sales and Marketing Director Phil Winnington. “A major hirer also tested the Crusher and provided valuable feedback.”
