BOBCAT has launched a new certified pre-owned programme as increased demand for machines continues to outstrip supply. 

All Bobcat Certified products will come after up-to-date condition, safety and operational checks are carried out and certified by official dealers. 

Now operating in the UK, Ireland, France and Germany, further countries, including Sweden, will be added to the scheme during the course of 2022. 

A spokesperson said: “Bobcat Certified aims to deliver machines of the highest quality and reliability, providing customers with a ‘like new’ experience, while demonstrating Bobcat’s commitment to maintaining the highest residual value for the entire Bobcat range.

“Machines have to meet a series of preset criteria to be eligible. These machines are then inspected and if approved as certified, are then updated to adhere to Bobcat’s latest quality and safety standards. 

“Each certified machine has proven reliability with Bobcat’s rigorous two-step inspection process, the latest service schedule using Bobcat genuine parts, oil checks, all necessary software upgrades and a 12-month/1,000-hour manufacturer’s warranty as standard. Bobcat’s industry-leading financing solutions are also available on certified machines.”

Supply issues have been widely reported across the sector in recent months, with the COVID-19 pandemic and Russia’s invasion of Ukraine among the factors cited.
