Bobcat Company has expand its attachment offerings to include super-flow planers, disc mulchers, drum mulchers, augers, heavy-duty brush cutters, grapples, snow blades, and mowers.

The company’s super-flow planers are high-powered attachments designed for milling concrete and asphalt up to seven inches thick. The versatile attachments take advantage of the extra hydraulic power available in the Bobcat T86 compact track loader and S86 skid-steer loader, with super flow generating up to 42 gpm and 4,061 psi. The super-flow planers are available in 24-inch and 48-inch cutting widths. Bobcat also offers a 40-inch planer compatible with both super-flow and high-flow hydraulics. In all, Bobcat offers six planer attachments that accommodate standard, high-flow and super-flow hydraulics.

Its disc mulcher attachment is designed to help operators power through tough land-clearing applications. Compatible with a host of Bobcat skid-steer and compact track loaders, the disc mulcher features a high-velocity disc fitted with four-point, hardened-steel teeth. It is engineered to tackle trees up to 14 inches thick, turning heavy brush and trees up to six inches thick into a bed of mulch. The disc mulcher is available in 48-inch and 60-inch cutting widths.

The company also offers a drum mulcher attachment for select excavators. Previously offered for select compact track loaders and skid-steer loaders, drum mulchers make fast work of heavy brush and trees up to five inches thick. This attachment allows excavator operators to clear trees and stubborn overgrowth along steep roadsides, riverbanks and other hard-to-reach areas. Three models are available, the 28DMX, 36DMX and 50DMX, with cutting widths of 28, 36 and 50 inches, respectively.

Bobcat has expanded its lineup of hydraulic-powered augers with four new models, the 12PH, 14PH, 20PH and 25PH, which offer a variety of torque and speed options to match a wide range of soil conditions and applications. Durable Bobcat augers are compatible with compact loaders, excavators, compact wheel loaders, telehandlers, small articulated loaders, Toolcat™ utility work machines and mini track loaders.

The manufacturer’s heavy-duty brush cutter aims to make fast work of clearing heavy brush and small trees. The brush cutter’s high-efficiency, direct-drive AP4 motor maximizes hydraulic horsepower for optimal cutting of tall, thick vegetation, including trees up to 10 inches in diameter. Compatible with a variety of compact track loaders and skid-steer loaders, the heavy-duty brush cutter is available in 62-inch, 74-inch and 86-inch cutting widths.

Also expanded is its diverse lineup of grapples to include an 80-inch and 86-inch root grapple, industrial bucket grapple and industrial fork grapple. There are 16 total models to tackle a variety of jobsite needs. The company also has brush grapples for compact tractors for gathering and stacking brush, tree limbs and other loose materials. Available in two sizes, the 48-inch grapple is compatible with Bobcat 1000-platform sub-compact tractors while the 60-inch grapple fits all 2000-platform compact tractor models.

The company’s Snow Blades for UTVs allows operators to plow through deep drifts and quickly clear snow from wide sidewalks, walkways and driveways with the heavy-duty V blade, heavy-duty straight blade or the medium-duty, straight-blade attachment.

The company also offers PTO-driven finish mowers that are compatible with select Bobcat compact tractors, sub-compact tractors and the UW53 Toolcat utility work machine.
