Doosan Bobcat introduces an electric track loader


Doosan Bobcat unveiled its new all-electric Bobcat T7X compact track loader at CES. Additionally, Doosan Bobcat announced a strategic partnership with South Carolina-based Sunbelt Rentals.

The electric tracked loader runs on a 62kW lithium-ion battery, which the company says is enough for a 4-hour continuous use session, or all day if used intermittently. Although the communication did not clarify maximum power or load capacity, the system is designed for flexibility because “power management system intelligence is programmed to detect when loads are increasing, automatically shutting off power supply when it is not needed to preserve total energy consumption and prolong the machine’s autonomy”.

Sunbelt Rentals will make a significant investment in an extensive fleet of Bobcat T7X all-electric compact track loaders and electric compact excavators in North America, which will be co-branded and made available in 2022 and beyond. Sunbelt Rentals then plans to be the first national equipment rental company to adopt Bobcat’s battery-electric technology and make it available to customers.

“This machine is a technological feat for Bobcat and for the industry as a whole,” said Joel Honeyman, vice president of global innovation at Doosan Bobcat. “We have challenged the status quo to deliver a connected, all-electric machine designed for power and performance that was not possible before. We are thrilled to share this breakthrough with the world and proud of the hard work that has gone into to make it a reality.
