The Bobcat S86 skid steer loader and T86 compact track loader are the most powerful loaders the company has produced.

Bobcat has released two new loaders that the company says are the most powerful it has ever produced, with higher productivity, greater attachment versatility, and more improved features.

The T86 compact track loader and S86 skid steer loader offer three hydraulic flow options in one machine, and also feature Bobcat's exclusive power management system, Premium Power Performance, which distributes power more efficiently on loaders equipped with high-flow and super-flow hydraulics.

"Bobcat has redefined best-in-class performance with the toughness, productivity and capabilities of the new T86 and S86 loaders," said Jorge De Hoyos, Bobcat senior product manager for loaders. "We're expanding our equipment lineup to support our customers' most challenging jobs. With these compact loaders delivering more usable engine and hydraulic horsepower than ever before, we are empowering customers to accomplish even more."

Both the T86 and S86 are engineered to provide attachment versatility and productivity, with every component designed to deliver maximum hydraulic performance so operators can work faster and lift more.

The three hydraulic flow options are:

  • Standard Flow (23.0 gpm, 3,500 psi) (Standard) - Select standard flow to operate attachments that require lower hydraulic horsepower.
  • High Flow (36.6 gpm, 3,500 psi) (Optional) - This system provides additional hydraulic power to boost production of attachments like the Bobcat flail cutter, trencher, planer and stump grinder.
  • Super Flow (42 gpm, 4,061 psi) (Optional) - Tackle the most demanding attachment applications, including pavement milling and clearing land of trees and heavy brush, with attachments designed specifically for super-flow hydraulics.
The new loaders are capable of being equipped with standard, high or super flow hydraulics, allowing for a wide range of attachment use.

Bobcat attachments are engineered to be fully integrated with the carrier's electronics, hydraulics and geometry. The T86 and S86 can power a wide variety of attachments including those specifically designed for super-flow hydraulics such as super-flow snowblowers, cold planers and forestry drum mulchers.

Several attachments require control of more than one function, and Bobcat's small, seven-pin attachment harness activates power and fingertip control functions while eliminating the need for the mechanical relays used on other loaders. The T86 delivers more usable engine and hydraulic horsepower than ever before with 105 hp and 3,800 pound rated operating capacity.

Equipped with the latest Bobcat technology, the T86 and S86 loaders are among the industry's most powerful, maneuverable and efficient loaders in their class size. Horsepower was boosted for the T86 and S86 while optimizing machine weight. The result is greater lifting capacity, impressive breakout forces and maneuverability for fast cycle times.
