Bobcat Company has expanded its dealer network with the addition of Hoven Equipment Company as an authorized sales and service provider of Bobcat compact equipment. The dealership is located at 4181 N. Park Trail, Great Falls, Mont.

Hoven Equipment was founded in 1978 by Brian and Barbara Hoven. They originally wanted to focus on the farm equipment arena but have since grown to incorporate both agriculture and construction equipment.

“We wanted to carry the Bobcat line of equipment because they are a market leader. No one makes a compact excavator that compares to theirs. Also, nobody makes a broader range of attachments than Bobcat, ” said Sean Hoven, general manager.

As a full service dealership, Hoven Equipment has experienced sales, parts, and service departments.

Bobcat Company introduced its original self-propelled loader with the unique skid-steer drive system to the industry in 1958.

Today, Bobcat is recognized worldwide as a leading producer of compact equipment and attachments. Hoven Equipment is part of a network of some 900 Bobcat dealerships worldwide. The widely known Bobcat brand includes an extensive line of powerful, nimble compact construction equipment and attachments.
