Sometimes attachments make the machine. Nowhere does that ring truer than with a compact tool carrier (often called a compact utility loader or mini skid steer). As one of the smallest motorized machines on the equipment market, compact tool carriers are specifically designed to run implements -- hydraulic and non-hydraulic attachments like buckets, breakers, brooms, blades, backhoes and box scrapers (and thatís just the Bs).
The entire idea behind the compact tool carrier is offering versatility in a small package, but just because they are small doesnít mean that these machines are accident-free. Powerful hydraulic attachments, walk-behind and ride-on platforms, and a diverse amount of applications and jobsites require an attentive and safe operator.
In this Bobcat Company training video, youíll learn basic safety rules and instructions for operating Bobcat compact tool carriers, which they call mini track loaders. Although this video contains many valuable guidelines, your operation and maintenance manual is your primary guide for safe operation and maintenance.
