In addition, the system has an adapter for the short-range transmitter to fit into standard housings. he 180-net hp IT38G Series II integrated toolcarrier has been updated for enhanced versatility, productivity and better visibility on the jobsite. By evaluating component placement and rerouting hydraulic lines, the company has increased the operator's viewing area. This provides the contractor with improved lines of sight to the work tool and coupler, allowing easier changes of attachments. Also, the line of buckets for the IT38G II has been expanded to include sizes of 2.75 cu yd to 3.5 cu yd. In addition, the machine now has an electro hydraulic system for the quick coupler, which is electrically actuated with a switch in the cab. he new LT414 trencher attachment models are designed for contractors who need a high-flow machine to handle medium to high-production trenching applications such as utility installation projects. They feature a 4 or 5-ft dig depth and are approved for operation on various Bobcat compact loaders with a high-flow auxiliary hydraulic system. The hydraulic flow capability of the trencher motor will accept flow ranging from 26 to 40 gpm to accommodate loaders with auxiliary hydraulic flow up to 37 gpm. They also come standard with a hydraulic side-shift feature.
