Bobcat Launches 'Features On Demand' for Compact Eqpt.

Sept. 1, 2020

Bobcat is launching its newest intelligent, digital solution: Features on Demand. Features on Demand is a technology that gives customers the flexibility to enable additional features on their R-Series compact loaders as their needs change. This technology gives them the freedom to customize a machine with the exact features required to get their jobs done. 

Features On Demand allows customers to purchase R-Series loaders that have certain features at the time of machine purchase. Customers can demo the fully equipped loaders, pick the features they want to keep, and add additional features later. 

Customers can enable the following features on machines:

  • 2-Speed travel: Increases the speed of the machine when traveling between jobsites.   
  • High-flow hydraulics: Provides additional hydraulic power to boost production of attachments.  
  • Automatic ride control: Reduces material spillage and allows faster travel and increased productivity.  
  • Dual-direction bucket positioning: Keeps the load at a consistent angle through the lift cycle.  
  • Reversing fan: Reduces maintenance and downtime by purging debris buildup.
  • Auto-Throttle is an optional feature that provides dynamic automated throttle control on machines equipped with Bobcat Selectable Joystick Controls.

The Features On Demand performance package is currently available for T76 and S76 machines. Auto-throttle is available on T76, S76, S62, S64, T64, S64, T66, and S66 machines. The package will be available for 6X compact loaders later in 2020.
