“There is always plenty to do and the Toolcat 5600 is a valuable asset that we can adapt to perform several tasks, simply by swapping out attachments. I’ve built miles of fence with the auger and moved hundreds of hay bales using the bale fork. Frankly, this farm wouldn’t run without our Toolcat machine.” — Dr. J. Paul Maddox

and serried woods; no fences, no well and no electricity.
An unspoiled, somewhat primitive place, the Maddoxes had a vision of how they could provide valuable experiences for so many others, without compromising the environmental integrity and inherent beauty of the surroundings.
“Even though we had a nice home in town, this is where our entire family really wanted to be,” Maddox says. “Building fences, the barn and shop, and putting up hay — all the aspects of farm life — really brought us together as a family and gave us experiences of life on a farm that few ever have the chance to experience. We all felt it was a place that should be shared with others.”
Maddox relies on his Toolcat™ 5600 utility work machine, purchased from Bobcat of the Wiregrass in Dothan, for
help completing a variety of tasks. He chose the Toolcat 5600 primarily because of the machine’s versatility and steadfast reliability.
“With such a variety of different projects here, we needed a machine that was versatile,” Maddox says. “There is always plenty to do and the Toolcat 5600 is a valuable asset that we can adapt to perform several tasks, simply by swapping out attachments. I’ve built miles of fence with the auger and moved hundreds of hay bales using the bale fork. Frankly, this farm wouldn’t run without our Toolcat machine.”
Attachments extend versatility
The Toolcat 5600 combines many of the best features of several different vehicles into one machine. It’s a pickup truck, compact tractor, skid-steer loader and
utility vehicle, all wrapped up in one great package. The Toolcat 5600 can be outfi tted with more than 40 Bobcat® attachments — all of which can be changed in less than a minute — thanks to the Bob-Tach™ attachment system — making it one of the most versatile and functional machines available today.
The four-wheel independent suspension system and automotive-inspired cab features give the Toolcat 5600 the fi t and feel of a comfortable pickup. At the same time, however, the rugged Toolcat 5600 is built to Bobcat equipment standards, enabling the sturdy machine to power through tough jobs with ease. It also has the capacity to tow up to 4,000 pounds with the 2-inch standard receiver hitch, and — with four-wheel drive — easily powers through tough, often muddy soil conditions. Maddox especially likes the front-mounted attachments with a lift
