Versatile Bobcat B730 backhoe loader for a range of applicationsBAdmin
From digging to trenching, breaking, and materials handling, the B730 from Bobcat Equipment South Africa is a versatile backhoe loader that can be configured for a diverse range of job applications.
The B730 is perfect for both small and large contractors, who have high expectations in terms of machine reliability and service, which is a prime focus for Bobcat Equipment South Africa, Product Specialist Jan Stansfield comments.
Other target markets are municipalities, and local utilities such as water and telecoms. Applications include construction, roadworks and maintenance, small demolitions and excavations, landscaping, and agriculture.
“Enhancing the versatility of the B730 in particular is the best-in-class 100 hp engine under the hood,” Stansfield comments. This standard 4.4 litre, four-cylinder turbocharged diesel engine delivers all the power for the most demanding applications. In addition, operating costs are reduced as the class-leading powertrain has been proven through rigorous testing to guarantee reliability and uptime.
Features include a four-speed powershift transmission. All models have an open centre hydraulic system, with a tandem gear pump in the B730. An unloader valve and electrohydraulic differential lock are standard across all models, while the B730 also features a limited slip differential.
An enclosed cab (with an optional high-performance HVAC system) is also offered. The operator compartment has easy cab entry, easily reachable controls, a tiltable steering column, a fully-adjustable seat, and high visibility.
Loader performance is characterised by powerful breakout forces, strong full-lift capacities, and enhanced load-over-height and reach in order to deal with the most demanding materials-handling jobs as effectively and as efficiently as possible.
Versatility and productivity are enhanced even further with the choice of a general purpose or six-in-one bucket. The B730 has a 400 mm ground clearance, together with a 25° back ramp angle for increased climbing performance over steep slopes.
“Whatever the application, high-performance digging, lifting, and trenching capabilities at maximum reach are achieved to handle your toughest jobs with ease,” Stansfield highlights. A broad range of optional equipment transforms a single machine into a highly versatile backhoe loader.
