Specialist Surfacing expand Bobcat fleet
Scunthorpe-based contractor purchases two new S570H skid-steer loaders from local dealers AMS Bobcat
SPECIALIST Surfacing have strengthened their fleet of Bobcat compact equipment with the addition of two new S570H high-flow skid-steer loaders, a sweeper and bucket attachments.
Supplied by local authorized dealers AMS Bobcat, the latest order joins an already impressive fleet of Bobcat machines at Specialist Surfacing that includes: S185 and 773TH loader models; four planers (18in); and 12 sweeper attachments (60in).
The contracting business was established in 1982 by Derrick Hunt and has since become part of the Hunt Group, one of the largest family-owned surfacing companies in the UK.
Julian Fowles, transport and garage manager for the Hunt Group, said: ‘We have run Bobcat loaders and attachments for many years. They are incredibly reliable and are the perfect tools for us in terms of the access and productivity they offer on work sites, and their ease of transportation.
‘We have Bobcat loaders working in every facet of our business, from loading materials and cleaning up on our sites to general handling work in our yards. They are the best multi-purpose machines on the market.’
Part of the new-generation Bobcat loaders, the S570H skid-steer is said to offer advances in cab comfort, visibility, controllability and pressurization. For example, the compact machine is equipped with vertical lift path boom arms particularly suited to lift and carry as well as materials-handling applications.
Mr Fowles added: ‘The increased lift height and optimized lift arm design of the S570H provides our operators with the ability to lift heavier loads higher, making it easier to clear high-sided truck boxes and hoppers for loading spoil and materials, as well as placing pallets loaded with heavy materials.’
The S570H skid-steer loader also incorporates a unique forward-positioned cab that moves the operator closer to the attachment and provides enhanced visibility in all directions around the machine.
Like all Bobcat compact loaders, the unit is equipped with the quick-change Bob-Tach attachment mounting system, allowing it to be combined quickly and safely with over 70 different Bobcat attachments, delivering versatility and time-saving efficiency across a wide range of different applications.
