Alfatech, the Authorised Bobcat Dealer for Ukraine, based in Dnipro City, has delivered 20 new Bobcat S770 skid-steer loaders for use in local authority work throughout the Dnepropetrovsk Region of East Ukraine.

From snow removal to street cleaning and much more, the brand new fleet of 20 Bobcat S770 skid-steer loaders will be based at six locations around Dnipro City to carry out this work. Many of the public organisations in the region already use mini-loaders as part of their machine fleets, but the new Bobcat compact loaders have been greeted as a very welcome addition.

Bobcat compact loaders and excavators are excellent tool carriers that can be used to mow grass, extract tree stumps, clear ice and snow and many other applications. Their compact size and manoeuvrability means that they can replace almost all manual labour. A wide range of optional attachments allows each loader or excavator to be converted into a different type of machine, depending on the weather conditions and the nature of the work to be carried out for the local community.

“Changing attachments only takes a few minutes,” Novomoskovsk City Council Public Utilities and Major Construction Manager, Stanislav Sigida. “And it takes only one person − a loader operator − to do it. This equipment is greatly needed by municipalities and is almost irreplaceable for this type of work in the community.”

He continued:

“This new special equipment can significantly speed up and simplify operations for improvements at the municipal level,” says Sigida. “With regard to attachments, municipal work is not that complicated − naturally, buckets are the most common attachment, with, for example, angle brooms and snow ploughs more in use in the winter.”

Alfatech has been the Bobcat dealer in Ukraine for over 10 years. The company is one of the biggest players in Ukraine’s construction equipment market, representing several brands, including Bobcat.

“The public sector market is highly competitive, but this is an established Bobcat customer, which really appreciates the Bobcat brand of machines and we ensure they receive the quality of service they expect!” says Alexey Dulepov, Sales Director of Alfatech.
