Skid-Steer & Compact Track Loaders

Bobcat's largest compact and skid steer loaders

Bobcat Company has introduced the largest compact track loader the company has ever manufactured – the T870 – along with what will be the largest skid loader in its lineup, the S850. 

These machines provide operators with more powerful hydraulics, increased fuel capacity, higher lift capacities and reach, increased pushing power and higher horsepower than any of Bobcat’s current loader models.

The 10,008-pound S850 has a rated operating capacity (ROC) of 3,875 pounds – 17 percent more than the current largest skid loader, the S330. The 12,678-pound T870 has a ROC of 3,325 pounds, or seven percent more than the current largest compact track loader, the T320. In addition, the loaders are the highest-lifting loaders in the industry with 144 inches lift height. The highest lift height will be appreciated by those who load over tandem axle trucks with side boards added, and mortar mixers, as well as those stacking brick, blocks or other palletized material.

The hydraulic systems on M-Series loaders have been engineered for higher standard flow and pressure that give attachments more power to work more quickly.

The standard auxiliary hydraulic flow on the S850 is 23 gallons per minute at 3,500 pounds per square inch and an optional high-flow feature reaches 37 gallons per minute for maximum attachment performance. On the T870 the standard auxiliary hydraulic flow is 23.8 gallons per minute, with an optional high flow of 37.4 gallons per minute.

Available only on M-Series machines, the optional Deluxe Instrumentation Panel intelligently monitors key loader functions, and the keyless start helps prevent theft.

The hydraulic quick couplers are mounted directly to the front plate of the lift arm to provide a solid mounting, and quick coupler hoses completely run through the loader arms for better protection. A guard bar extends in front of the coupler for added security.

Keeping the loaders cool when working long hours is important in prolonging the service life of the machine. That is why Bobcat redesigned the cooling system on the M-Series for increased efficiency and higher performance. The new design also makes it easier to clean out the cooling system, with an oil cooler that swings up, allowing the operator to clean the area between the oil cooler and the radiator.

The S850 and T870, like other M-Series loader models, feature a unique cab-forward design that not only makes the loaders look different, but also moves the operator closer to the attachment and provides unmatched visibility in all directions.

Better visibility is provided to the cutting edge of the bucket or the corners of an attachment because the cab door is the largest available on the market. The cab door threshold has been lowered and the overall surface of the door has increased more than 40 percent to provide improved visibility and make it easier for operators to enter and exit the cab.

Windows on the sides and rear of the cab have also been increased in size to provide a better view of the tires and to the rear. The larger top window makes it easier and more comfortable for the operator to see the attachment with the lift arms raised, an advantage when loading trucks or performing other tasks.

Comfortable operators are more productive, so to create a better working environment Bobcat increased the size of the M-series cab by 10 percent, redesigned the interior to allow operators to adjust the environment to their individual preferences, and improved cab pressurization.

Bobcat M-series loaders have a pressurized cab, with a new one-piece seal that goes all the way around the door and fits into a special curved pocket. This minimizes the amount of dirt and dust that might enter the cab, creating more enjoyable working conditions and making it easier to clean the cab.

Noise is another factor affecting operator comfort, and Bobcat reduced the sound level of M-Series loaders by more than 60 percent. New engine mounts improve isolation to decrease vibration and reduce sound levels.

The control levers – on both standard controls with power assist and the optional Selectable Joystick Controls (SJC) – move up and down in conjunction with the seat to reduce operator arm movement and fatigue. The joystick mounts slide forward or backward to adjust to the preference of each individual operator.

Terex GEN2 R265T Compact Track Loader – Heavy-Duty Machine with a Light Footprint

Featuring a 74-hp turbocharged Tier 4 Final diesel engine with variable flow hydraulics for powerful productivity and quick cycle times, the new 2,650-pound rated operating capacity Terex R265T compact track loader is the newest member of the Terex Generation 2 (GEN2) loader line-up. Boasting a narrow machine width (70 inches), the R265T radial lift path compact track loader can easily maneuver and operate in confined or congested work sites, making it an ideal loader for rental stores and contractors working in site preparation, construction, landscaping, infrastructure development and demolition applications. Its purpose-built chassis is designed to be a heavy-duty machine within a compact package.

Proving it has the power and productivity to get the job done, the R265T loader has 221 ft-lb of peak torque, a tipping load of 7,571 pounds, a bucket breakout force of 5,800 pounds and a lift height of 125 inches, enabling it to get loading, picking and carrying, grading, back dragging or snow removal jobs done faster and more efficiently. Compact track loaders, like the R265T unit, engineered with a radial lift path – meaning the loader arms raise in an arc pattern – excel at digging and grading applications. Another benefit of the radial lift path configuration is the visibility around the unit it provides to operators, especially when working around existing infrastructure, such as homes and in backyards.

Small-Chassis D Series Loaders Offer Intelligent Leveling System

Four new D Series small-chassis models are the latest additions to the Cat compact track loader (CTL) and skid-steer loader (SSL) ranges: SSL models 226D and 232D; and CTL models 239D and 249D—all incorporating the design innovations of larger D Series machines, including a sealed/pressurized cab, electro-hydraulic controls, redesigned lift arms, premium seat choices, and optional Advanced Display (available with rear-view camera). All use an electronic CatC2.2 engine that meets Tier 4-Final/Stage IIIB emissions standards.

The 232D is designed with agricultural applications in mind, and the 239D and 249D are engineered as strong contenders in the general construction and rental markets. The 239D, with its suspended steel-embedded rubber track, replaces the 247B3 Multi-Terrain Loader (MTL) and delivers lower owning and operating costs for machine owners not requiring the capabilities of the rubber-wheeled, softer track system of the MTL. Further advantages of the new small-chassis SSL models include a two-speed drive system with a top speed of 11 mph (18 kph) for the 226D and 232D and for the CTLs operating weights of less than 8,000 pounds (3 630 kg) for the 239D and 249D, allowing transport without a Commercial Driver's License.
