Bobcat’s T590 compact track loader has been awarded a ‘Lowest Cost of Ownership’ (LCO) award in the ‘Loaders Compact Track’ category in awards organised by EquipmentWatch.
The LCO awards are the industry’s only accolade of their kind, based on empirical data regarding the long term cost of heavy and compact equipment. They are organised by EquipmentWatch, a world leader in data, software and insights for the heavy equipment industry. Nominees are recognised within 15 different categories of machine that exhibit the lowest cost of ownership over a five year span.
The T590, recognised in the awards, compact track loader has an operating weight of 3,548kg, a rated operating capacity (ISO 14397-1) of 971kg and a tipping load (ISO 14397-1) of 2,774kg. Also recognised in the awards was the Bobcat S70 skid steer, winning the ‘Skid Steer Loaders Small’ category for the second year in a row. The S70 is the smallest model in the Bobcat skid steer loader range. With a width of 901mm, a height of 1,814mm, an overall length with standard bucket of 2,472mm and an operating weight of only 1,268 kg, the S70 is designed for compactness, transportability and manoeuvrability.
The T590 and S70, like all Bobcat compact loaders, are equipped with the quick change ‘Bob-Tach’ attachment mounting system, allowing them to be combined quickly and safely with a very wide choice of Bobcat attachments. This delivers versatility and time saving efficiency across a range of different applications.
