New compact track loader for the Blackpool Zoo in England

The Blackpool Zoo, located in the seaside resort of Blackpool in the north of England, has purchased a Bobcat T590 compact track loader for its new Project Elephant, a state-of-the-art pavilion that has been built to house a breeding herd of Asian Elephants. Thanks to the low ground pressure and stability of the tracked undercarriage, the new T590 has proved to be the right machine for working on the deep fine sand that covers a large part of the floor surface of the new elephant enclosure.

“The machine will be used for hay and straw unloading, feed deliveries and moving animal crates, grounds work in the animal paddocks and clearing out animal bedding as well as maintenance work around the Zoo ground,” says Zoo’s Head Keeper, Luke Minns.
