Bobcat Loader Radio Remote Control System
February 4, 2008

The loader radio remote control system from Bobcat Company. enhances the capabilities of Bobcat skid-steer and compact track loaders with selectable joystick controls (SJC) and Bobcat all-wheel steer (AWS) loaders, offering a simple solution for customers who want to operate their loader remotely. Operators can start the loader engine and operate the drive, lift, tilt and auxiliary hydraulic functions from approximately 1,500 feet away with the radio remote control transmitter. The transmitter joystick controls activate the loader’s joystick controls in the ISO control pattern. The system is useable for up to 15 hours on a rechargeable battery. In addition to being able to use the system in various climate conditions, operators can easily switch between remote control mode and machine/direct control mode. Concrete demolition, asphalt planing, firebreak construction, stump removal and poultry barn cleanup are just a few applications in which customers could utilize the Bobcat loader radio remote control system. For many of these applications, a two-person work crew is required. But with the radio remote control system, one person can complete these tasks while operating the loader using the remote control transmitter from outside the machine.
