Bobcat launch pressure washer attachment
Company adds new pressure washer to family of more than 100 different original attachments
BOBCAT have launched a new, compact pressure washer attachment for their skid-steer, compact track and all-wheel-steer loaders.
Designed to spray high-pressure water on roads, yards or any other suitable surfaces, the plug-and-play design of the new attachment ensures it is quick and easy to connect to a Bobcat loader, allowing the operator to begin work immediately.
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.
Daniele Paciotti, product line manager for Bobcat attachments in Europe, the Middle East and Africa, said: ‘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.’
The new attachment is also very versatile, as the operator can either operate the sprayer from the cab or use a handgun for more targeted high-pressure water cleaning or sanitization of various objects.
Mr Paciotti added: ‘The handgun and accompanying 20m hose reel provide an easy switch from the front sprayer to hand-held washing, providing an alternative solution for cleaning corners, machines, signs or any tight spaces.’
The 250S pressure washer model is intended for use with 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.
By working closely with Finland-based pressure washer suppliers Dynaset, Bobcat can now offer an attachment that is simple and effective at 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 requirements of the pressure washer attachment. The absence of rotating parts in the high-pressure pump increases durability, reduces maintenance requirements and increases uptime.
