Smarter Engineering: Bobcat vs. Other Loader Brands – Bobcat Videos

Watch Other Competitive Loader Tests:

Hose routing can be the difference between a working or broken machine. A broken hose or damaged coupler can waste precious work time. That’s why Bobcat® loaders are engineered to protect against damage. Kubota®, Caterpillar®, Case® and New Holland® don’t measure up to the same standards. Their poorly designed hose systems can easily snag on jobsite obstacles. Only Bobcat makes protecting your machine a priority so you can stay productive.

We examined each brand of loader to find the differences between hydraulic systems. Bobcat mounts hydraulic quick couplers as part of the loader arm and protects it with a metal bar. This reduces the risk of impact from the sides, top or front. Kubota, Case and New Holland leave couplers more exposed, putting you at greater risk of downtime. Caterpillar uses light-gauge steel to somewhat protect the coupler on its loader; however, it is vulnerable to damage from the side, front and top.
