Bobcats for EC Surfacing

EC Surfacing Ltd, based in Brigg in North Lincolnshire, has expanded its machine fleet with the purchase of the company’s fourth new Bobcat S570H skid-steer loader and a new Bobcat E27 mini-excavator from AMS Bobcat, the local Authorised Bobcat Dealer.

Like all Bobcat compact loaders, the S570H loader is equipped with the quick-change Bob-Tach attachment mounting system, allowing it to be combined with over 100 different families of Bobcat attachments. Meanwhile, the new E27 2.7-tonne model is part of the Bobcat R-Series of mini-excavators from 2- to 4-tonne, and was selected by EC Surfacing partly because it can load high-sided trucks.

EC Surfacing holds framework contracts for a number of local authorities, including North Lincolnshire Council, North East Lincolnshire Council and Sheffield City Council. “We use the Bobcat loaders with buckets for front end loading of tarmac when we are hand-laying surfaces and clean up afterwards with brush attachments on the loaders, explained company MD, Jim Huxford. “As they are high flow models, we also use the new loaders with planer attachments to carry out repair work.”
