Bobcat Enterprises in Cincinnati, Columbus, Louisville and Lexington is hosting one of the biggest competitions for Bobcat equipment operators in the Midwest in September. Bobcat Enterprises is celebrating 30 years of serving the compact construction equipment needs of contractors, farmers, landscapers and owner/operators with a week long, traveling old-fashioned Bobcat Rodeo.
Four rodeos and open house events will take place starting Sept. 15 in Cincinnati, Sept. 20 in Louisville, Sept. 22 in Lexington, and culminating on Sept. 24 in Reynoldsburg (a suburb of Columbus).
All four rodeos will feature timed operator skill competitions on Bobcat track loaders, skid-steer loaders and Bobcat Zero House Swing excavators. Bobcat Enterprises in Columbus (Reynoldsburg) and Cincinnati (Tri-County) will also offer a competition on rough-terrain forklifts. In addition to bragging rights, winners will be awarded cash prizes and Bobcat Bucks redeemable at all Bobcat Enterprises locations.
And the event is not just for operators. There will be plenty to do and see including riding a mechanical bull and registering for door prizes like the grand prize of the use of a Bobcat 2200 utility vehicle for one year.
Rodeo attendees can watch new product demonstrations in the center ring and cheer on the Bobcat track machines as they try to maneuver their way out of the treacherous mud pit. Bobcat equipment owners also can learn tips on caring for their machines at the Bobcare Clinic conducted by factory-trained technicians.
