The Bobcat Loader Radio Remote Control System offers you an innovative new method of loader operation, with a remote control. This feature enhances the capabilities of Bobcat all-wheel steer, skid-steer and compact track loaders with Selectable Joystick Controls (SJC). The remote control system is a simple solution if you want to equip your loader to operate remotely, in certain environments.* Compared to other more complex systems, it is easy to install and simple to operate.
Why a Loader Radio Remote Control System?
Improve productivity with the Radio Remote Control system! For example, often times two people are required for operation when using attachments such as planers and wheel saws; one to help guide the placement of the attachment using hand signals, while the other operates the loader. The operator is exposed to vibrations, noise and dust created by the attachments. With the Loader Radio Remote Control System, this same job can be done with one person, and the operator can operate the loader from a distance, free from dust and noise. A comfortable operator is a productive operator!
In addition to military applications, the remote control system will also be a valuable addition in markets and applications including concrete applications, demolition, highway and asphalt planing, fire breaks, stump removal, poultry barns, shipping yards, nuclear power plants, foundries, mining, chemical plants and municipalities.
How does it work?
