Bobcat Co.Bobcat Co. added a rear camera kit to its list of available options for Bobcat skid-steer and compact track loaders.

The kit offers the operator a continuous rear view of the machine to prevent contact with obstacles that may damage the loader and its components, according to Bobcat.

It includes a 4.3-inch LCD color monitor with an LED backlit screen, wiring harness, mounts and a tailgate-mounted camera that offers a 118-degree horizontal viewing angle and an 89-degree vertical viewing angle. Multiple screen and camera settings enhance the display image for optimal viewing in both light and dark conditions, Bobcat said.

The system is integrated into the loader, activated when the ignition is turned on and runs continuously as the loader moves in both forward and reverse motions. The display’s integrated circuit protects the system against over and under voltage, spikes, ripples and load dumps.

Shock- and vibration-resistant, the camera and display are qualified for all applications, and the kit provides heavy-duty metal housing and a rubber backlit keypad to protect components from hazards. An antiglare, scratch-resistant screen gives operators an optimal display image.

The system is rated for both dust and water exposure, and the camera’s internal heaters remove condensation, snow and ice from the lens, so operators have a clear view in all weather conditions and temperatures ranging from -40 degrees to 185 degrees Fahrenheit.

The kit is compatible with any M-Series or newer Bobcat loader model.
