The launch of the new Bobcat Asphalt Preservation Tools (APT) system provides asphalt paving contractors and government customers with an innovative system that is powered by Bobcat loaders for cost-effective repairs that minimize traffic disruption. This simple restoration system will be beneficial to asphalt paving contractors and road repair crews at all levels of government for repairing potholes and other surface defects like cracks, deteriorating surfaces, and frost heaves that develop in streets, highways and parking lots. The system also is ideal for reclamation of driveways, trails and golf cart paths. These attachments are designed to perform a three-step asphalt preservation process that seamlessly fuses recycled asphalt with surrounding asphalt to create a strong and durable bond that outlasts conventional asphalt approaches, because it does not involve cold joints or repeated treatments.

The Asphalt Preservation Tools system consists of an infrared asphalt heater and an asphalt processor that is compatible with 12 approved Bobcat all-wheel steer loaders, skid-steer loaders and track loaders including the A300, A770, S300, S330, S750, S770, S850, T300, T320, T750, T770 and T870. These attachments can be connected to the loader quickly and easily with the Bob-Tach® attachment mounting system, which provides a tight-fit attachment hookup. www.bobcat.com
