Bobcat is gearing up to showcase its latest and most exciting line-up of products and innovations at CONEXPO 2023. The Bobcat stand is a testament to the ingenuity of the company that built the world’s first skid-steer loader nearly 65 years ago. Electrification, autonomous operation and digital technologies will be on display as the company shares new ways these advancements are making compact equipment operations easier and more productive than ever before.
Bobcat will showcase its next-level electric innovations and will unveil two new concept machines with electric functionality.
Visit Bobcat at booth W41544 in the West Hall to see its expansive electric product line-up, from the all-electric T7X compact track loader to battery-electric excavators, including the E10e, E19e and the North American exclusive E32e.
The company is continuing to expand its electric concepting and will unveil two new electric concept machines during the show on Tuesday, 14th March at 4 p.m. Pacific Time in its booth (W41544 in the West Hall). Show attendees are welcome to attend this unveiling and press conference.
With innovations in electrification, autonomy and digital technology, Bobcat continues to offer customers more choices, improved performance and advanced technology to work smarter and accomplish more. At CONEXPO 2023, Bobcat will exhibit a number of its innovative digital features and technologies – some in concept form and others that are commercially available.
Collision Warning and Avoidance System
New in concept form is a collision warning and avoidance system designed to assist operators’ jobsite awareness. Compatible on select Bobcat compact track loaders and skid-steer loaders, the technology tracks objects’ position, direction and speed relative to the machine. Using either the active or passive setting, the operator can receive an audible alert or enable the machine to stop automatically upon detecting an object in its path. While still in product development, Bobcat expects this solution to be available to customers later in 2024.
Excavator featuring Bobcat Intelligent Control System
Bobcat is showcasing one of its latest technology concepts: Bobcat Intelligent Control System. Featured on an E60 excavator, the new intelligent controls enhance machine control and operation. With greater customization of work modes, operators can increase their performance and efficiency while grading, trenching, slewing and performing other precise operations. The new Drive by Joystick mode allows operators to use the joysticks to travel, similar to Selectable Joystick Controls on a Bobcat loader. Bobcat Intelligent Control System on compact excavators will continue to drive future innovations like advanced depth check features, remote operation via Bobcat MaxControl and autonomous functionality.
New Solutions for Advanced Display Technology
Bobcat is displaying the future of its advanced display technology with its transparent touch display. The concept heads-up display, which operators can see through to also view the jobsite, can be positioned on the front windshield or a cab side window on a range of Bobcat machines, including compact excavators, telehandlers and loaders. The display enhances operator productivity and efficiency to the task at hand.
Bobcat Vice President of Global Innovation, Joel Honeyman, and Director of Innovation Accelerated, Matt Sagaser, are taking centre stage during CONEXPO 2023’s Education Sessions for their presentation, “Electrifying the Future: Get Plugged In.”
The presentation, to be held on Tuesday, 14th March at 1 p.m. PT in the West Hall 216-218, will examine common myths surrounding electric operation and the benefits – from sustainability attributes to performance enhancements to technological advancements.
