Bobcat’s Bob-Dock system is a hands-free hydraulic attachment mounting system designed for easy and repeatable hydraulic connections without operators leaving the compact loader cab. The system prevents common operator errors, such as failing to disconnect hydraulic hoses before backing away from an attachment.

The Bob-Dock system will be available for M2-Series T630, T650, T740 and T770 compact track loaders; S630, S650, S740 and S770 skid-steer loaders; and the A770 all-wheel steer loader.

To connect an attachment to a compact loader equipped with the Bob-Dock system, an operator lines up the loader with the attachment’s Bob-Dock adapter plate. The operator then presses the Power Bob-Tach switch inside the cab. The Bob-Tach system secures the attachment, while the Bob-Dock system automatically connects the hydraulics. The attachment is then ready to use.

When you’re done using the attachment, retract the Bob-Tach wedges and pull away. The hydraulics instantly release.

It can also be used on equipment without a Bob-Dock adapter plate as standard couplers remain available for use.
