Please do not try to order this item yet.  This page is for information only at this time.  If you wish to pre-order, contact us first and we will add you to the list.

The X-Cat is almost here.  Soon you can convert 12 volt switches to output CanBus commands that will work with Bobcat attachments.  Imagine plugging into the 14 pin connector on your Kubota, Cat, Kobelco, Takeuchi, New Holland and other skid loaders that are 14 pin compatible and then running 7 pin compatible Bobcat attachments.  You will no longer be stuck with one machine manufacturer.  I specifically took on this project because I was planning on ridding myself of my Bobcat machines and buying a new Kubota but I have Bobcat attachments.  Yes, I can make a harness and use it, but I knew there are a lot of people that are switching and they want to be able keep their attachments in tact or they may keep a few Bobcat machines around so they want to swap back and forth.  This is the answer and once again it is pure GENIUS! If you can plug a socket into a receptacle, then you can manage this adapter.

Consider This:  If you are a dealer of any machine besides Bobcat, you can now bid your machines against theirs and claim to be 7 pin compatible for their attachments.  This is huge because Bobcat holds onto these bids and locks everyone out because customers do not want to convert their attachments over.  Now they don't have to. 

We are not accepting orders, but wanted to get you our status because many of you have been waiting for a while.  This product is 5 years in the making and involves a lot of the technology that we devised to create our CB models of 7 Pin converters for Bobcat machines. In fact a lot of it was built into our bench testers that we use to test the CB's prior to sending to our customers.

Part of the delay has been the patent process.  We wanted to make sure that we made a bullet proof patent application.  The CB controllers were purchased by our buddies in MN and they flat out copied our technology.  They are poor examples of what we created but nonetheless they kinda work and we learned a hard lesson.  Patent and protect!  We will vigorously protect this product because we spent years developing it and our MN buddies are just plain thieves.

Details:

Takes about 1 minute to install.  Is 100% plug and play.  This configuration is for plug mount so you can use it over and over on any machine and attachment that has one - six solenoids to control.  This is complete and ready for plug and play directly into any Bobcat® branded attachment*.  It has an indicator LED to show you that you have power and that it is receiving commands from the skid loader and is transmitting them to the Bobcat® attachment.

What is included:

  • X-Cat Controller with up to 6 outputs and 1 dump valve control.
  • 14 Pin Compatible for most manufacturers except John Deere.
  • Easy to Follow Instructions
  • Incredible factory support that is not available anywhere but from Genius.

This is not just a plug in adapter.  There is a microprocessor with software loaded along with a IC driver circuit that enables this to work.  That is why it costs more than just a plain old connector.

How does it work?

It senses when you touch a button control and knows which button you push.  It sends a corresponding signal using CanBus technology out of the 7 pin plug into your attachment.  Your Bobcat attachment will think that it is connected to a Bobcat loader and work accordingly.

Are there any issues? 

Yes.  Some attachments require 2 way communications between the Bobcat and the attachment.  These attachments will not work. 

Bobcat Grader - Yes, Bobcat Grader with Laser.  No, but we are working on a work around.

Bobcat Chipper.  No.

Bobcat Concrete Pump - No

All other attachments should work with no issues.
