Bobcat wins highest retained value award again

Bobcat has won two EquipmentWatch 2021 Highest Retained Value (HRV) Awards for Compact Track Loaders (model T770) and Small Skid-Steer Loaders (model S590). This is the sixth consecutive year that Bobcat has won an EquipmentWatch HRV Award. These are the only awards in the industry that leverage third-party, unbiased data to identify equipment that is projected to best hold its value over the next five years.

The EquipmentWatch Awards are based on an extensive analysis of data records, which determines residual values calculated according to market depreciation standards. The HRV Award winners represent product class categories within equipment types projected to retain the highest percentage of original value after a five-year period. Using the Fair Market and Forced Liquidation Values contained in the EquipmentWatch Values product, analysts examine year-over-year depreciation for more than 12000 models with up to 30 model years of values. Using a proprietary algorithm, EquipmentWatch is able to predict residual values up to 84 months into the future.

The EquipmentWatch HRV Awards cover 30 categories across construction, lift/access and agricultural equipment. The categories capture the most popular types of equipment based on annual observed market activity.
