Bobcat has launched the company’s new B730 M-Series Backhoe Loader for markets in the Middle East and Africa (MEA) and Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) regions.

Conceived and built at the Doosan Bobcat manufacturing facility in Chennai, India, the B730 M-Series is a new addition to the Bobcat backhoe loader range, providing a model for emerging markets. 

Available in a choice of different configurations and matched with attachments for diverse applications, the B730 M-Series is for the segments of construction, rental, roadworks, demolition, excavation, landscaping and many other industries.

“Together with our customers and experienced dealer network we developed a machine that is ideal for mixed contractor and rental fleets,” said John Chattaway, Loaders Product Manager, Bobcat. 

The machine is said to have ‘class-leading’ breakout forces, reach and dig depth capabilities and multi-function backhoe operation. Bobcat says that this is combined with its powerful hydraulic system, robust build and intuitive operation, providing excellent productivity for trenching, levelling and loading work.
