The Bobcat loader is a piece of heavy machinery that carries material in a bucket on the front of the vehicle. The loader allows the operator to move material from one place to another or load material onto a platform. Loaders can also excavate a piece of ground if they have the appropriate attachment. These vehicles have an enclosed cab to protect the operator from harm in case of an accident.
