Ocicat™ Magnetic Sweeper
Rugged & Reliable Cleanup for Tough Job Sites
One of the great things about owning/operating a skid steer or track loader is how versatile they are. Increase the utility of your machine with the Ocicat magnetic sweeper attachment.
This attachment was designed to be a fast and convenient solution for clearing tough terrain of metallic debris that can be hazardous to equipment, personnel, and animals. The Ocicat attaches to almost any skid steer using a universal skid steer connection plate and auxiliary hydraulic ports.
Not only does the Ocicat perform ground-to-bin metal collection without having to physically handle the debris, it can also easily groom hard packed surfaces while collecting embedded metal debris. The tines on the front of the Ocicat can be raised or lowered depending on if the affected area’s surface requires agitation for grooming or metal collection purposes.

The Ocicat Magnetic sweeper features a clean off system that allows an operator to empty debris from the magnet using hydraulic power. The magnet assembly hangs on 3.5” inch steel pivot points and is powered by the auxiliary hydraulic ports of your skid steer. The low-profile layout of the hydraulic ram and lid allows for excellent visibility to the ground while operating the Ocicat; this helps you keep an eye on the depth of the debris digging rakes. The rakes add a secondary function to having the Ocicat attached to your skid steer; you can resurface and groom large areas quickly while preventing future problems with metal debris.
Attaching the Ocicat Magnetic Sweeper to a Skidsteer
The Ocicat features an 18” Inside top of Universal Adaptor Plate to bottom of magnet design and 0 deg lead in which allows for easy magnet positioning – you can couple into it and if you set the lift arms of the skid steer / track loader on their lower stops it will provide a 3”to 4” sweeping height so you can’t ram the bottom of the Ocicat into the ground. It hooks on in seconds and detaches just as quickly, check out the demonstration below to see what is involved in attaching and detaching the Ocicat to a track loader.
The connection between the Ocicat and a skidsteer can be made without any specialty adaptors, the standard hydraulic ports will suit most machines. The hydraulic lines are secured on the inside and outside of the magnet assembly to prevent chafing and wear as the magnet operates its cleanoff cycles.

Ocicat Skidsteer Magnet Power Test
The magnetic power of this skidsteer attachment is strong enough to pick up a 2.5” nail from 13” off of the floor in a bench test. What this means in the real world is that even when traversing terrain with varying grades the magnet will continue to collect metal as the machine rides the bumps and dips.
The Ocicat has a Wrap Around feature that retains collected debris on the back of the magnet if the pan brushes against the ground while moving.
Land Grooming Debris Digging Rakes
A new feature for the skid steer magnet market is our adjustable depth, debris digging rakes that come standard on the Ocicat. These spring-loaded tines are 3/8” thick and can loosen up hard packed gravel to create a uniform grade.
A single pass without the rakes down will yield an impressive amount of collected debris but with the rakes down and running over the same area, the Ocicat will collect even more ferrous debris. Agitation from the lowered tines, shakes embedded debris loose which allows it to be caught by the magnetic field and collected.
Maintenance & Usage
