Bobcat invented the concept of the skid steer in 1958 and still claims to be the best when it comes to skid steer loaders. The range is certainly extensive, with 12 models in the Bobcat skid steer loader family.
Bobcat still regards itself as the leader in compact construction equipment. The invention of the skid steer in 1958 was a result of the pioneering approach to business that the company prides itself on, and that spirit of innovation still infuses the firm's product development endeavours today. This hunger to find new and better ways of doing things has led to machines that are focused on saving time and effort and therefore making more money for operators.
Bobcat skid steer loaders are designed to offer the maximum amount of versatility and productivity across a long service life to keep cost of ownership down and profits up. The attention to detail in the design process and quality of construction means that service and upkeep costs are kept to a minimum, while this reputation for reliability and durability means that depreciation is low and used Bobcat skid steer loaders therefore carry a bit of a price premium. Nevertheless, it can be worth paying to get a machine that is clearly so well engineered and you can always get that money back when it becomes time to resell.
