Rubble, demolition debris no match for skidsteer loader

THE arduous applications of rubble removal, site clearing, and demolition work is ideal for the tough and rugged Bobcat S530 skidsteer loader.
That’s according to Philip Du Plessis from leading waste removal specialist, Rocket Trading. “We offer a Bobcat rental fleet for our customers,” he said, adding that his Cape Town-based company had dealt with the Bobcat brands for at least 15 years and had long standardised on its products due to their dependability, efficient performance, and flexible application.
The 24/7 aftermarket service offered by Bobcat Cape Town, where Du Plessis’s main contact is Christo Swart, is key to minimising downtime for Rocket Trading, which relies heavily on having its skidsteers up-and-running at all times for maximum productivity.
Another major benefit he listed is the 4 000 hour or three-year warranty that is offered as standard by Bobcat, which underscores the quality manufacture of the machines themselves. “I strongly recommend Bobcat equipment to anyone involved in our industry, because if it can keep up with our tough applications, it can deal with anything.”
The Bobcat S530, S570, S590 and T590 skidsteer models feature vertical lift path boom arms particularly suited to lift and carry, in addition to a range of material-handling applications. The new vertical lift path loaders offer an increased lift height compared to the previous generation.
Combined with an optimised lift arm design, operators have the ability to lift heavier loads higher, making it easier to clear high-sided truck boxes and hoppers, as well as placing pallets loaded with heavy materials.
