Bobcat loader joins Hemswell’s road surfacing fleet

8 Jul 15 Hemswell Surfacing has bought a new-generation Bobcat S550H high-flow skid-steer loader together with sweeper and bucket attachments from local Lincolnshire dealer AMS Bobcat.

Hemswell Surfacing managing director Alan Jennison said that the new Bobcat loader is an excellent tool for road projects. “We have been hiring Bobcat skid-steer loaders and attachments from AMS for several years now and they have become such an integral part of the equipment we use, we felt that it was time to invest in a new loader and attachments as part of our own machine fleet,” he said.

Like all Bobcat compact loaders, the S550H loader is equipped with the quick-change Bob-Tach attachment mounting system, allowing it to be combined with over 70 different families of Bobcat attachments.

Jennison added: “With its ability to turn around in its own length and fast cycle times, the S550H loader offers us the manoeuvrability and flexibility we need in the sometimes tight spaces available on site, working alongside our bigger machines such as pavers and rollers on surfacing projects.  The new S550H loader is an excellent all-purpose vehicle for general material handling such as loading and placing materials whilst hand-laying macadams. Combined with the powerful brush attachment, it is also an efficient clean up tool.”
