    Daedong is about to become the parent company of bobcat, and bobcat will be entering the cut market so says lawn & landscape magazine.

    Daewoo - Doodson is the company that purchased Bobcat form Ingersol-Rand, assuming the feds let the deal happen. Daedong is a different company, who happens to also be South Korean.

    We both stand corrected, doosan is the new parent co. This from page #8 of the new pro magazine.

    if they make all of bobcats attachments compatible with that new tractor they will sell alot of them. i already thought that the tractor market already had to many companies.

    Exactly. My entire skid steer fleet is Bobcat and I rent out a variety of Bobcat attachments. Having the ability to utilize the 3pt hitch option along with the bob-tach equipped front-end loader will make my customers very happy... and I will be very happy as a byproduct of that...

    Where did you get the brochure? What are the HP ratings of the machines?

    Pricing?

    Thanks,
