Small… Powerful… Comfortable. With a retracted track width of less than 28 inches wide, the ultracompact 418 can access jobsites where exhausting hand labor is your only other option. Only Bobcat gives you the features to be more comfortable, go through narrower openings and to operate in tighter conditions with confidence.
Bobcat Features include:
Exclusive, adjustable joystick consoles—so you can position the joysticks outward for comfort, or inward for access through narrow openings (gates, doorways, etc.)
Zero tail swing optimizes spoil placement without damaging nearby objects.
Fold-down Tip Over Protective Structure (TOPS) allows this compact machine to pass underneath branches, low openings and through doorways.
Retractable undercarriage—retract for access through gates and doorways.
Selectable control pattern: ISO or standard joystick controls.
Hydraulic joystick control for smooth, fluid operation and increased efficiency.
Two-speed travel for increased mobility around the jobsite.
Top-mounted boom cylinder protects from impact in the trench and from jobsite surroundings.
Protected workgroup hoses are routed through the inside of the workgroup for minimal wear and tear.
