Bobcat Grader Kit - 96/108" Grader with Gateway Control and Side Shift. Permanent Install Kit
Order this kit if you have a newer model Bobcat brand grader that is either 96" or 108" wide and it has only the Bobcat 7 pin cable with 2 hydraulic hoses.
In this kit you will receive the Bobcat branded T-Harness which connects to the Bobcat controller in the grader. This harness now includes the side shift harness and we make everything in house so we are no longer paying the Bobcat exorbitant prices. We happily pass the savings along to you.

You will also receive a Genius Super Controller Permanent install kit. This gives you 10 operational functions with 2 of them locking so that you can turn the laser receivers on and off as needed.

I already have the genius controls what else do I need for either the 84 in or the 96 in bobcat grader to be able to run it manually and to use auto grade with a futura eg2 system I’m not sure which of the two grader I am getting most likely the 84 because of price but if the 96 gets here first I’ll get it I need to get to work asap
If it's new and has a Gateway Controller installed, use this harness.

Looking to use Bobcat 108 Grader on a Cat 289D3. We also would like to be able to install a GCS900 Trimble System on this setup.
That has been covered many times, so please click the follwing FAQ link.
Hello we recently bought a 2020 96" bobcat laser grader to put on our 2015 Cat 289D. We already have the bobcat T Harness 7164095. Just checking on what other harness/controller we need to make this functional with lasers. We would need the super controller 14 pin 10 controls and SG-BC14-BC14-GR bobcat grader side shift adapter correct?? Also with the grader run any functions with just the bobcat T harness installed? Thanks
Yes, you are correct with what you need. Yes, you can get two functions with just the T-Harness if your machine was ordered with all of the control buttons. You would get Left and Right side up and down. No angle, side shift or laser control would work.
is this everything I will need , what about the short cable ?
If you buy the kit, you get all three items.
Just installed the super controller on a cat 289d. With the old Blade set up just using buttons and adapter I feel like I had fiber control. With the new controller and new blade it’s hard to fine tune angle and heights. Is there a way to adjust speeds on supEr controller
The old blade is proprietry digital controls. We have had to convert them to analog controls. There is no way around it except to create a whole nex blade controller, hydraulic block and Super Controller. That would be in the $5000 range. I doubt anyone would ever buy it.
I don't see any joysticks in the harness for a Tak TL150
They are in the main photo to the right side.
I'm trying to adapt a newer Bobcat grader blade to a 2020 Caterpillar 299D3. My question is that if we install the harness on the grader blade to adapt to the machine how do the automatics work? Do we have to do anything additional to the machine or is it plug and play?
All of the controls ruun off of the Super Controller Joysticks. The Z position needs to be held for 6 seconds to turn the automatic controls on. You will lose the screen access that is provided inside the Bobcat. You cannot buy an external screen because Bobcat uses their own CAN signals and they will not sell you an external screen. Otherwise it is plug and play. Please plug it in and try it before you install it so you are assured it will work the way you want it and be careful when installing it. There is a video on the Suoer Controller install that can be found here. By clicking the link below.
Can you guys ship this kit to Australia ? I work for local government ( Shire council ) and they've purchased a 96" Bobcat grader to go with their Cat 246C skid steer and they want me to "make it work", as far as I can tell this is my only option. Cheers.
Yes, we ship to Australia. You can run it through the cart and it will calculate shipping.
It doesn't have a laser on it. It's an older one
Then you can just install this harness. https://www.skidsteergenius.com/collections/bypass-cable-kits/products/sg-bph-14-6-9-dp
So what I need is this? $1800? I bought a wiring plug a while back for a harley rake and it was only around $200. Does that sound right?
If you are trying to operate a grader, that is a completely different animal to running a Harley rake. If you look in our FAQ section or videos, you will see exactly what I am talking about. Basically running a Harley Rake means you only need to bypass the controller in the attachment. You can use your existing controls for that. To operate a grader we have to fool the controller so you can even connect to it. Then we have to equip your machine with controls since you only have a maximum of 6 and you need 8 - 10 controls. If you tried to have a dealer do this that knew what they were doing, it would cost you $4000 - $5000. We spent a couple of years creating an affordable kit that was simple to install and was the least invasive thing we could figure for everyone. This kit works for everyone and is a lot cheaper than anything you could ever do through a dealer. And.....it works!!!
when you use the super controller joystick to switch the grader from manual to auto and back again is there anything to indicate it's switched modes?
On the front of the laser receiver there is an LED indicator.
I have a Tac TL150 and I just purchased the 96” Bobcat grader blade w/sideshift. I have Topcon dual slope laser and 2 pole receivers for the grader. Question is, will your complete harness work for my Tac to do auto grading and can I also use a Topcon GPS system if I choose with your harness on my Tac?
Is the system already integrated into the Bobcat grader? If so, it will work. If not, you are in unchartered territory. I can help a bit but you need to knpow your way around the Topcon.
hello there I have a 262D cat machine the and purchased a 2017 96 bobcat grader I would like to know for sure that the $1895.00 permanent kit will work for me the sn is ACW901428 on the grader itself? My other question I have for you is I know it is compatable with a laser system would it be with a trimble GPS system? Also would this super controller operate other solniod oprated attachments as well? I live in Mandan nd and my number is 701-400-9011 if you could give me a call plese thank you .
Yes. We developed the kit specifically to use on a Cat with a Bobcat grader. Yes, it is pin for pin compatible with other attachments. It will work only with the laser systems developed for Bobcat. We are working on our own that will work outside of the Bobcat system.
Looking to see if you have worked with trimble on this at all? We are trying to set up a John deere 333G and a Tac TL12. Both machines have different joysticks, and want to have the same on both machines
We created the grader kit for this purpose, but you have to use the entire kit and install the joysticks. This will give you the ability to switch the Trimble from manual to auto mode. I am assuming this is the Bobcat Trimble kit and not an external one you are adding? If it is external, then no at this point it will not work. Also recognize that since this is not connected to a Bobcat you will be missing the screen and external screen adjustments that come with it. You have to manually adjust your slopes and level.
