All-new machines made their trade show debut, including the Bobcat AT450 articulating tractor, the Bobcat E40 compact excavator, the Bobcat ZT5000 zero-turn mower and the newly rebranded Bobcat turf renovation equipment (formerly RYAN® turf renovation equipment).

Notable machine highlights include:

AT450 Articulating Tractor

Introduced in June 2023, the AT450 excels at material handling, turf maintenance and snow removal, and is an ideal solution for hobby farms, commercial properties, golf courses and sports facilities. The tractor’s articulating and oscillating frame keeps all four wheels in contact with the ground—even on rough, uneven terrain—which helps limit surface disturbance during turns.

Bobcat Turf Renovation Equipment

Bobcat is rebranding the RYAN brand under the Bobcat trade dress in 2024. This lineup of Bobcat turf renovation equipment will include aerators, sod cutters, dethatchers, power rakes, overseeders and other specialty products that serve landscaping and grounds care professionals across a variety of industries including golf, sports turf, landscaping and rental. Bobcat-branded turf renovation products will be available to customers in North America in early 2024, and attendees at Equip Expo were able to preview the SC18H sod cutter, AE19 aerator and AE30S aerator at Bobcat’s indoor booth.

With the E40, operators get high performance, fast cycle times and optimal maneuverability with practical features and pricing to match. It’s a minimal tail swing excavator, with less than two inches of overhang and a standard long arm. The E40 will be available to customers in North America in late 2023.
