“We offer a Bobcat rental fleet for our customers,” Philip Du Plessis from Rocket Trading comments. Having dealt with the Bobcat brands for at least 15 years, Du Plessis comments that the company has long standardised on Bobcat due to its renowned dependability, efficient performance, and flexible application.

The 24/7 aftermarket service offered by Bobcat Cape Town, where Du Plessis’s main contact is Christo Swart, is key to minimising downtime for Rocket Trading, which relies heavily on having its skidsteers up-and-running at all times for maximum productivity.

Another major benefit is the 4 000 hour or three-year warranty that is offered as standard by Bobcat, which underscores the quality manufacture of the machines themselves. “I strongly recommend Bobcat equipment to anyone involved in our industry, because if it can keep up with our tough applications, it can deal with anything.”

The Bobcat S530, S570, S590 and T590 skidsteer models feature vertical lift path boom arms particularly suited to lift and carry, in addition to a range of material-handling applications. The new vertical lift path loaders offer an increased lift height compared to the previous generation.

Combined with an optimised lift arm design, operators have the ability to lift heavier loads higher, making it easier to clear high-sided truck boxes and hoppers, as well as placing pallets loaded with heavy materials.
