The loaders, which were supplied by authorised Bobcat dealer Otrac Heavy Equipment, are for use in one of the largest governorates in the north of Egypt.

Otrac Heavy Equipment chairman Hatem Ouda said: “We are delighted that Bobcat skid-steer loaders have been chosen to carry out this important work. The Egyptian government and Otrac have a successful, long standing relationship, involving the purchase of many machines, including an order for 21 new Bobcat skid-steer loaders supplied by Otrac three years ago.”
The latest batch of Bobcat skid-steer loaders is for use in a new cleaning and maintenance program instituted and supported by the Egyptian government. The machines have have each been supplied with a Bobcat bucket and will be used for ditching and street cleaning work in major cities.
