Bobcat Expands Clamp Attachment Family with Pro Clamp(TM) System for Greater Versatility
Press release date: June 1, 2014
WEST FARGO, N.D. — Bobcat Company — Bobcat® excavator operators will be able to grab larger, more irregular-shaped material and perform more efficient grading tasks with the new Bobcat Pro Clamp™ system. The optional Pro Clamp system will expand the Bobcat excavator clamp attachment family for M-Series models including the E32i, E32, E35i, E35, E42, E45 and E50.
The Pro Clamp system consists of a base that attaches to an M-Series excavator bucket and is equipped with pin-on adjustable standard tool or reversible grading tool. With enhanced functionality, the Pro Clamp system will add greater versatility to contractors performing applications in construction and demolition, site development, landscaping and logging operations. Both tools can be easily removed if desired to maximize visibility into trenches and provide unlimited bucket curl for reaching above truck height when loading material.
Standard tool grabs larger material
The standard tool’s adjustable design allows it to be pinned in a position that provides traditional grabbing performance similar to the existing Bobcat excavator clamp. For greater performance, it can also be pinned at a higher point on the base to provide a wider jaw and more aggressive grabbing action for handling bigger material such as larger-diameter utility pipe, boulders and logs. The tool also offers greater range to follow the bucket farther towards material roll-out.
Grading tool cleans trenches faster
The 24-inch Pro Clamp grading tool is reversible allowing for dual functionality. With the grading tool pinned in the forward position on the bucket, it provides a smooth cutting edge on the bottom of a trench that eliminates the need for a second smooth lip bucket. When the grading tool is pinned in the reverse position on the bucket, it is designed for faster transitions from cleanup areas to dump trucks by removing spoil piles quicker and reducing manual shoveling.
