Jan. 5, 2022
Sunbelt Rentals committed to a significant investment in a large fleet of Bobcat T7X all-electric compact track loaders and electric compact excavators in North America, which will be co-branded and made available in 2022 and beyond.

Doosan Bobcat announced a strategic partnership with Sunbelt Rentals during its Media Days news conference at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas this week. Through this partnership, Sunbelt Rentals committed to a significant investment in a large fleet of Bobcat T7X all-electric compact track loaders and electric compact excavators in North America, which will be co-branded and made available in 2022 and beyond.

Sunbelt Rentals will be the first national equipment rental company to adopt Bobcat's battery-electric technology and make it available to customers, supporting the environmental, social and governance (ESG) focus for both companies.

"By making an investment in this first-of-its-kind, all-electric technology, we support our ESG objectives of empowering our customers and communities with the availability of alternative rental solutions that reduce emissions and noise," said Brendan Horgan, CEO of Sunbelt Rentals. "Sunbelt Rentals is leading the implementation of electrified on-road and off-road products to unlock the ESG structural benefits of rental."

Sunbelt Rentals, based in Fort Mill, S.C., is No. 2 on the RER 100, with 1,025 locations.
