New Bobcat pallet fork frame features a walk-through design Bobcat Company introduced a new pallet fork frame, making it the ideal solution for handling materials of all shapes and sizes. The new Bobcat pallet fork frame features an integrated walk-through design for easier operator entry and exit to and from the loader cab. In addition, the new design provides compact equipment operators best-in-class visibility for picking and placing materials. The new frame is approved for use with all Bobcat skid-steer and compact track loaders, Toolcat utility work machines, and the V519 VersaHandler telescopic tool carrier. Loader and Toolcat machine operators can easily connect and disconnect the pallet fork frame with the Bob-Tach attachment mounting system. For even faster changes, Bobcat machines with the Power Bob-Tach system can change the pallet frame without even leaving the cab. The new pallet fork frame design makes it easy to move bagged or palletized materials, and then switch to lifting bales. Customers can choose from three models to best match the operator's lifting needs: standard-duty offers 2,500-pound capacity; heavy-duty, 4,000-pound capacity; and severe-duty, 5,500-pound capacity. The walk-through front frame provides a comfortable entry and exit to the loader's cab, while enhancing operator safety. Plus, the Bobcat loader cab door easily clears the pallet fork frame for a smooth entry.
