New concrete mixer attachment for Bobcats

14 May 13 Bobcat has launched a new version of the concrete mixing bucket for its compact loaders.

The new concrete mixer attachment allows users to mix, transport and pour concrete and cement more quickly than with a stand-alone mixer, Bobcat claims.

The bucket is approved for use on the Bobcat S130, S510, S530/H, S550/H, S570/H, S590/H, S630/H, S650/H and S770/H skid-steer loaders and the T590/H, T650/H and T770/H compact tracked loaders, all of which must be equipped with an attachment control kit.

The remote attachment control (RAC) device allows the operator to start/stop the loader and operate the concrete mixer from outside the loader, so they do not have to keep exiting and entering the loader.  This feature allows one operator, working alone, to load and mix concrete.

In common with most other Bobcat attachments, the concrete mixer fixes to the loader via the Bob-Tach system.

The width of the concrete mixing bucket attachment is 115cm, making it suitable for pavements, driveways and concrete finishing work, as well as for fence posts, footings and floors of small buildings.

Equipped with a hydraulically-driven reversible auger, the mixing bucket can be self-loaded from a pile or loaded by pouring materials from the top.

The 270-litre drum can rotate in either direction and discharge the load either by tipping or through a hydraulically-controlled gate underneath.
