Bobcat has announced that its first compact wheel loader - the L85 - is now in full production at its Dobris campus in the Czech Republic.

A powerful Stage V engine tuned to 68hp is complemented by high stability, breakout, push and pull forces and a comprehensive selection of Bobcat attachments. Combined with intuitive controls, enhanced operator comforts and ease of use, the L85 is ideal for a wide range of industries, such as construction, road work, landscaping, snow removal, waste, recycling, agriculture and many other applications.

16 skid-steer and compact track loader attachments are already approved for use on the L85, with more to be announced in the near future. The current range includes planers, asphalt spreaders, an angle broom and sweeper, a snowblower and snowpusher, forks and a combination bucket. The L85 is equipped as standard with the Power Quick-Tach system compatible with industry standard couplers. To run high-flow attachments such as snow blowers and planers, the L85 can be fitted with a high flow option, providing a hydraulic flow of 100 l/min.
