New WS-SL20 Wheel Saw Attachment from Bobcat
4 May 2018
Bobcat is launching the new WS-SL20 Self-Levelling Wheel Saw. Approved for use on the Bobcat S630, S650, S770 and S850 skid-steer loaders; the T590, T650, T770 and T870 compact track loaders and the A770 all-wheel steer loader, the new WS-SL20 Wheel Saw is designed to cut efficiently through asphalt, rock and concrete surfaces.
The WS-SL20 Wheel Saw has a variable segments wheel, which allows the user to quickly change the width of the wheel (50, 80, 100, 120 mm) in the field, instead of replacing the complete wheel in a workshop (providing a saving of 10 hours in the process).
The self-levelling feature on the WS-SL20 allows the attachment to follow and adapt to the contours of the ground and the new design means that a trench cleaner is no longer needed. Utilising well-proven Bobcat components such as the ACD (with Bobcat Software) and valve block components, the new wheel saw has an integrated stabilizers system and a standard rubber shield for stone ejection/dust reduction. There is a water kit option for dust reduction. Removable deflectors are also a standard feature, allowing the WS-SL20 to operate as close as possible to the pavement edge.
Applications include fixed width trenching for the utilities covering water, gas, power, telecommunications and fibre optic networks. The WS-SL20 can be used for creating excavation sites and for slot cutting. The WS-SL20 can also be used for maintenance work, including trenching vertical edges for road and pavement repairs.
As a market leader worldwide, Bobcat offers customers so many advantages in the attachment market. They include the company‘s One-Stop-Shop approach – providing every possible combination of machine and attachment from one source and a massive stock of products available for immediate shipment worldwide.
