Students working on diesel engines as part of CCA’s Diesel Power Mechanics program received a boost in February with the donation of a skid-steer loader from Bobcat of the Rockies. 

Bobcat of the Rockies is loaning the college the skid-steer loader for staff to demonstrate to students engine theory, component identification, and other practical applications. The Diesel Power Mechanics program received the skid-steer loader at the same time the college also purchased a Bobcat mini excavator.

The cost of the donation is equivalent to about $60,000 and is a big boon to the program, said Andrew Singer, CCA Diesel Power Mechanics faculty. “We can do a lot of different things with these machines,” he said. “That they are letting us use it is great for the program.”

The donation is especially helpful for students employed as apprentices by Bobcat of the Rockies, Singer said.

“Those students who work for Bobcat – these are the types of machines they are going to be working on,” Singer said.

Each year Bobcat of the Rockies will replace the skid-steer with another skid-steer for staff to use to teach students. Both the skid-steer and mini excavator replace an older forklift that was outdated.
