    small "Bobcat" articulated wheel loaders:

    hi I noticed in some article on the net that bobcat produces or has produced with its brand and its livery small articulated wheel loaders similar to the Italian Venieri or palazzani, similar to the Atlas, why they have never expanded their market to this type and tonnage of machinery, I do not think there is much market, strange that they do not produce backhoe, they are very versatile machines both on construction sites and on farms farms and forest works, even manitou told me that it makes small earthmoving machinery more suitable for agricultural use, you know nothing , thank you

    Bobcat made a wheel loader back in the '80's as well.

    thanks for the clarification, they are not common machines in my part.

    Kubota makes them too. Was wondering about trading my svl75 in for a r640. 11000lb machine. I just use the svl around the farm, sometimes do some work for my builders like backfilling the lines I dug or graveling a slab. But mostly its just for small stuff around the farm. Problem is it tears the yard up and my gravel driveway. Kubota just re-did the cabs on the wheel loaders, look nice. But the svl is great for grading around the cows, you can really see the bucket edge and cut great swells. Tough decision.

    I have an SVL 90–2 and a Kubota R630 wheel loader, if there’s any mud at all or it’s slightly slick you can forget about using the small wheel loader for anything productive, the track loader around your farm is probably the way to go.
