Bobcat has showcased an array of new concepts and technologies including, the T7X–the World’s First All-Electric Compact Track Loader, at its Demo Days event at Dobris in the Czech Republic.
At the first face-to-face Bobcat Demo Days event to take place in nearly three years, the T7X concept was presented on European soil for the first time, while, among other highlights customers and dealers were able to preview the MT100 Mini Track Loader which will be launched later this year.
The T7X concept is designed as a machine that addresses emission and noise reduction with a 62-kWh lithium-ion battery pack that can give four hours of continuous use. Operators can also manually tune the performance of the T7X for specific jobs, which includes the ability to vary its drive speed while at full torque.
Joel Honeyman, Vice President of Global Innovation at Bobcat said: “Another striking feature of the T7X which really stands out from any loader on the planet is the fact that there are virtually no fluids in the machine. The traditional hydraulic work group has been completely replaced with an electrical drive system consisting of electric cylinders andelectric drive motors. The only fluid that goes in the machine is about four litres of eco-friendly coolant.”
Meanwhile, the MT100 Mini Track Loader is designed to replace hard manual labour with wheelbarrows, shovels and other hand tools. It can pass through gates, doorways and other narrow spaces whilst still offering high levels of power with a rated operating capacity of more than 450 kg.
Commenting on this year’s event, Gustavo Otero, President Doosan Bobcat EMEA, said: “After almost 3 years we are delighted to be able to host a live event again. It is a unique opportunity for our customers and dealers to attend Demo Days with its revolutionary concept that allows them not only to see but to try out our whole range of products. They also have a great opportunity to meet in person the Bobcat team members who are developing our new products and solutions including designers, engineers and product managers.”
At the inaugural Construction Machinery Middle East Awards, Bobcat was recognised in the ‘Innovation of the Year’ category, and shared its insights into what the future of compact equipment looks like via a virtual presentation. In March 2022, the firm also completed its loader range for the Middle East.
