Bobcat T7X - An All Electric Loader

Bobcat T7X

I'll preface with we really don't know too much about this machine. With automobiles making the change to electric from a combustion engine, Bobcat is moving towards the same thing. Electric machines do have a place in the world, & we'll soon find out where. 

Fully Electric

The Bobcat T7X only uses 1 Quart of eco-friendly coolant. Equipped with a 62-kilowatt lithium-ion battery, the estimated work time on one charge is 4 continuous hours, but intermittently it lasts a full day. Again, we don't really know too much about this machine, so I'm not speculating on anything.

Being interested in electronics, I started comparing new electric vehicles batteries just for fun. 

Model Battery Size
Bobcat T7X 62 kWh
2022 Ford F150 Lightning 98 kWh
2022 Tesla Model 3 50-82 kWh
2022 Rivian R1T 135 kWh
