The right choice!
Right now you're probably wondering...Should I rent a machine and do the job myself? If not, who should I hire? Certainly there are other lesser Bobcat services you could choose, some even deceptively appear to be about $15 or $25 per hour cheaper than Bobcat Man. But invariably they are running little 4,000 lb. medium-size rubber tire machines with 50 horsepower or less. The ubiquitous Bobcat 763, for example, is only 48 HP, a Bobcat 743 only 38 HP, A Bobcat 463 a meager 22.5. None of those is even half the machine Bobcat Man's 8,000 lb., 66 HP turbocharged T590 track machine is (turbocharging adds 45% to 50% additional HP giving the T590 95 to 99 HP!).
And often the competition shows up with off-brand knock offs. Bobcat Man always shows up with a REAL Bobcat!
How would it look if Bobcat Man showed up sporting a Takeuchi? LOL.
The T590's big bucket, stable platform due to weight, superior traction, faster speed and far more powerful engine = more of the work you need done completed far faster and far better!
Why pay $85 per hour for 9 hours ($765) or more when, by taking advantage of the current special coupon rate (see the; Internet Discount Coupon tab at left) you can pay just $115 per hour for 5 hours ($575 TOTAL! OR EVEN FAR LESS for tasks listed in Bobcat Man's current coupon section) and get a better job to boot? In other words, hire someone with a smaller machine and you're stuck paying about 75% of my hourly rate but getting less than 50% of the work because with their tiny under-powered, rubber tire machine, the math says they'll take nearly twice as long!
Often I'm called in AFTER folks have rented or hired out a smaller machine that lacked the power to do some portions of the job. Do you really want to pay twice?
Some people see only the hourly rate and mistakenly think the lower hourly rate number is some sort of bargain, experience and machine size/power don't figure into their equation. It's the intelligent people who do their research that keep me in business. They verify the slightly higher hourly rate for over double the machine and extra experience means the job will cost far less, not more, and is the far better deal. Then they hire the Bobcat Man asap!
And Bobcat Man shows up for the job! Many others do not!
Renting? In most cases renting a Bobcat for rent or similar skid steer loader is an even worse choice than hiring some other Bobcat for hire operator, please see the sidebar to the right.

The T590 Bobcat run by the Bobcat Man is a winning combo...a match made in Bobcat heaven you might say. "I wait to get you, Bill," said Johnny, a contractor I work for regularly who builds new houses in Antioch, Tennessee, "Because you and your machine can do what no one else I've hired before over the years can!"
