Bobcat Machine IQ Wireless Communications

Imagine reaching into your pocket, pulling out your phone, and seeing exactly where your new compact excavator is located. Or receiving a text message if that excavator is somewhere it’s not supposed to be. You can make both a reality today with Bobcat Machine IQ Wireless Communications, the telematics service for new Bobcat equipment.

Bobcat Machine IQ is Bobcat Company’s official telematics service. Bobcat Machine IQ delivers vital, time-saving information about your R-Series compact excavator, or M2-Series skid-steer or compact track loader, to your Bobcat Owner Portal, a personalized website you can access via any internet-connected computer, phone or tablet. Bobcat Owner Portal takes the information collected from the electronic sensors in your machine and organizes the information so its is useful for you to make decisions.
