WEST FARGO, ND – Bobcat introduces the Toolcat 5610, a new model in the company’s line of utility work machines, featuring a three-point hitch and hydraulic power take off (PTO) for rear implements and the ability to run more than 40 front-mounted Bobcat attachments. The Toolcat 5610 has an available Category 1 three-point hitch that allows buildings and grounds crews, landscapers, agriculture producers, property owners, and others to perform a variety of tasks with three-point implements. Customers with existing Category 1 three-point implements, up to 1,775 pounds, will be able to use them on the Toolcat 5610.
The Toolcat 5610 has an available PTO for running implements on the rear of the machine. A hydraulically driven motor powers the 540-revolutions-per-minute PTO to drive implements such as grain augers, multiple stage mowers, tillers, sprayers, and snowblowers, among others. High-flow auxiliary hydraulics are required to run the PTO.
In addition to using three-point implements on the rear of the machine, the Toolcat 5610 is also a compact loader and attachment carrier, with a front lift arm that has a rated operating capacity (ROC) of 1,300 lbs. It has a 1,500-lb. ROC if the optional counterweight kit is used.
The Bob-Tach mounting system on the lift arm enables operators to switch between attachments in less than a minute and requires no additional assistance or tools. The Power Bob-Tach system is available as an option to change non-hydraulic attachments with the flip of a switch from inside the cab. More than 40 front-mounted attachments are available for use on the Toolcat 5610.
With the rear PTO three-point hitch and the front lift arm, operators can use two different attachments on the Toolcat 5610 at the same time as long as one of the attachments is non-hydraulic. For example, a hydraulic soil conditioner can be mounted on the front while a non-hydraulic seeder implement is used on the rear of the machine. Using two attachments on the Toolcat 5610 will save the operator time by reducing the need to stop and change attachments between tasks.
