Bobcat loaders are known the world over for their rugged durability. Thanks to heavy-duty construction, component protection and a superior design, the Bobcat loader outperforms others, maximizes uptime, offers more comfort and is still the easiest and fastest to service.

All the innovations on the new loaders are dramatic. Take the Premium Cab design, the largest on the market, with more space, less noise and enhanced ergonomics for greater operator comfort, enhanced productivity and better protection both back and front. Even more dramatic is the new forward position of the cab that significantly increases visibility for the operator both in front and all round the machine. Add to this a significant increase in power and hydraulic performance that boosts productivity; simplified maintenance and serviceability; and a completely new engineering design coupled with improved durability that further increases uptime.

Features & Benefits

Operator comfort

The threshold of the cab door has been lowered and the size of the cab door has been increased, making it easier for operators to enter and exit the cab.

Visibility

The 5 cm forward positioning of the cab places the operator closer to the attachment. Forward visibility is further enhanced thanks to a 45% larger door and a lower front cross-member on the cab.

Performance

Traction on the new generation loaders has been increased by 15 to 20% to provide greater pushing and digging power. The ratios in the transmission were changed.

HYDRAULICS

The standard flow hydraulic efficiency has been increased by over 30%, providing better attachment performance. Hydraulic flow has been increased by 11% or 9 l/min. At the same time, the pressure of the pumps has been increased by almost 14 bar.

Reliability / Durability

The new generation loaders are built to work long hours on demanding jobsites. The hydraulic quick couplers are mounted directly to the front plate of the lift arm. A guard bar extends out in front of the couplers for added protection.

Serviceability

The transversely mounted engine and swing-open tailgate offer optimum ease of maintenance. The oil cooler swings up, allowing the area between the oil cooler and the radiator to be cleaned quickly.
