Bobcat ‘challenges status quo’ by introducing world’s first all-electric track loader

It makes sense that many types of machinery are going electric these days. Toro recently introduced all electric zero turn mowers, and many others lawn and garden manufacturers are doing the same.

But when it comes heavy machinery like skid steer loaders and excavators, conventional wisdom says that might take a while to develop the technology that would deliver the horsepower needed for big dirty jobs. Enter the Bobcat T7X, the world’s first all-electric compact track loader. This machine is fully battery-powered, built to be more productive from the ground up with electric actuation and propulsion, quieter with high-performance torque and more powerful than any diesel-fueled track loader that has ever come before it — all while eliminating any carbon emissions.

Did you get that? More powerful than a diesel fueled track loader?

“Doosan Bobcat is at the forefront of innovation, and we are proud to debut the all-electric technology of the T7X to help customers maximize both sustainability and productivity,” said Scott Park, president and CEO of Doosan Bobcat Inc. “Our focus remains on providing solutions and products that empower people to accomplish more and build a better world.”

A bold promise indeed. The Bobcat T7X is the world’s first all-electric compact track loader. The T7X is the first machine of its kind to be fully electric, offering the full benefits of eliminating hydraulic systems, components, emissions and vibrations – all while providing cleaner, quieter machines, according to Bobcat.

“This machine is a technological feat for Bobcat and for the entire industry,” said Joel Honeyman, vice president of global innovation at Doosan Bobcat. “We challenged the status quo to deliver a connected, all-electric machine designed for power and performance that previously was not possible. We are excited to share this advancement with the world and proud of the hard work that has gone into making this a reality.”
