The Bobcat Co. recently announced a long-term agreement with Korean manufacturer Daedong Industrial. Under the agreement, Daedong will produce a Bobcat-branded line of compact utility tractors, which is aimed at complementing the current Bobcat range that includes skid-steer loaders, compact track loaders, all-wheel-steer loaders, mini track loaders, compact excavators, telescopic tool carriers, utility vehicles and attachments. According to Bobcat, the company worked with Daedong to create a compact utility tractor that meets the needs and expectations of North American buyers.
"This alliance brings together the strengths of two respected companies," says David Rowels, president of Bobcat Americas. "By combining the Bobcat global brand, dealer network and service with Daedong's commitment to compact tractor design and technology, we can provide our customers with the quality compact-equipment experience they've come to expect from Bobcat."
