    I wonder what engines will be in the new Bobcats rumored to be due out in the next 3 months.

    Anyone see the new work saver? A whole paged dedicated to the tier 3, interim tier 4, and tier 4 info on the kubota engines. In a side note, the specs were wrong for the engines unless they switched all the large frame loaders to 230 cu in.

Since I.R. recently bought Bobcat they decided to not use Kubota engines exclusively in their equipment so Kubota said OK we will now sell CTL's in the U.S. If this is true, I think that IR made a very BIG mistake. Lets wait and see if this rumor has any merit.

    Ingersol R. no longer owns the Bobcat line , Doosan of Korea does

    specs were wrong. My dealer said the kubota engines will stay. We'll have to see if they are direct driven or belt driven to the new pumps.

    That is a rebranded Thomas. Kubota and Thomas had an agreement that allowed Kubota to brand the Thomas skid in Europe. This was before Thomas went bankrupt.
