Where does Bobcat get all its ideas for the attachments?

 

The company already makes about 70 tools to use with a Bobcat – everything from post hole augers to road graders.

 

Most of the ideas come from customers. You can also submit ideas through its Web site. They get two or three submissions are a week.

 

One of the latest ones: A log cutter.

 

The tool grips a 10-foot long log in a grapple-like vise as a chainsaw on an arm chops the wood into even lengths and awl splits the log into firewood sticks.

 

Pretty neat.
