So, whether you’re dumping over a wall, backfilling or unloading flatbed trucks in a confined space, you have what you need to do more on your jobsite.

PERFORMANCE FEATURES

POWERFUL HYDRAULICS
Bobcat® loaders consistently meet your high expectations for performance. The design, balance and weight distribution deliver more usable horsepower, powerful breakout forces and faster cycle times. Work quicker, lift more and outperform your competition.

STANDARD CONTROL SYSTEMS
Bobcat Standard Controls remain the most popular style for loaders. Control the drive functions with dual steering levers. Manage the loader lift and tilt with dual foot pedals.

SELECTABLE JOYSTICK CONTROL
Bobcat Selectable Joystick Controls (SJC) are becoming the most popular control choice among operators. No other joysticks in the industry comes close to delivering the level of customization and control you'll find with SJC. Our system lets you control your loader and attachments easily and comfortably. They’re loaded with many Bobcat-exclusive features.

AUTOMATIC RIDE CONTROL
Automatic ride control reduces material spillage, allowing you to travel at faster speeds across rough terrain. Thanks to its dampening effect, the option also increases operator comfort by offering a smoother ride.

SUPERIOR LIFT ARMS
With two lift path options, Bobcat® skid-steer loaders have you covered. Vertical lift path machines provide more reach at full lift height, while radius lift path models offer maximum reach at truck bed height. The durable and patented single-plane design reduces side-to-side lift arm movement and minimizes load on the pins.

EFFECTIVE WEIGHT BALANCE
When not carrying a load, Bobcat® skid-steer loaders offer a weight distribution of 70 percent in the rear and 30 percent in the front delivers balanced, easy turning for ideal performance. It offers effective turning and skidding, reduced fuel consumption and power requirements, increased drive train and tire life, and less wear and tear compared to “flat-footed” machines sold by other manufacturers.

DELUXE INSTRUMENTATION
Deluxe Instrumentation brings upgraded communication, monitoring, productivity and control to your Bobcat® skid-steer loader or compact track loader. It monitors key loader functions, communicates alerts and provides additional attachment information to track usage.

2-SPEED TRAVEL
The 2-Speed travel option boosts your top travel speed. Reduce your travel time across jobsites, limit the need to load and unload your machine on a trailer, and shorten your long-haul tasks.

SMART COOLING
Cooling on Bobcat® loaders features the exclusive SmartFAN that only turns as fast as needed. The patented design cools more efficiently, while the radiator and hydraulic oil cooler are protected from jobsite hazards. Additionally, Bobcat offers an optional automatic reversing fan which clears debris from the radiator screen while you’re working in dirty environments.

REMOTE CONTROL
All loaders that are equipped with Selectable Joystick Control (SJC) can be operated by a remote control system, so you can operate the machine without having to have an operator in the cab. The remote control is completely portable. If you have multiple machines, you can quickly remove the remote from one machine and attach it to another in minutes.

UPTIME PROTECTION FEATURES

PROTECTED COMPONENTS
Jobsite hazards are everywhere and when your machine is out of operation for repairs, you lose valuable work time and money. With Bobcat® skid-steer loaders and compact track loaders, you’re ready for nearly anything that you’ll encounter. Each component is designed for reliable protection. For you, that means peace of mind, no matter the conditions of your jobsite.

PROTECTION TECHNOLOGY
Bobcat's reputation for reliable equipment protects your reputation for timely, productive work. Every skid-steer and compact track loader is engineered with multiple protection technologies. Working together, they protect your machine and decrease the risk of failure. For you, that means better reliability and the confidence to do you work.

SIMPLE MACHINE TIE-DOWNS
Quickly secure your skid-steer loader or compact track loader without searching for hard-to-reach tie-downs. The tie-downs are easy to locate and use.

MAINTENANCE-FREE CHAINCASE
Bobcat welds its axle tubes to the loader chaincase. This, along with tight tolerance chain placement, eliminates the need for adjustments. So instead of spending time in the shop, you can spend time on the job with Bobcat skid-steer loaders.

KEEL-SHAPED UNDERCARRIAGE
Most other skid-steer loaders have flat bottoms. When conditions turn wet and muddy, they can easily sink, spin and struggle. With the industry-exclusive keel-shaped undercarriage, Bobcat® skid-steer loaders perform better and reduce your chances of getting stuck.

COLD WEATHER PROTECTION
Bobcat diesel engines are engineered to guard against the damaging effects of extreme cold weather. They prevent premature wear by automatically adjusting increasing the idle speed (rpm) to warm up oil and automatically set a maximum operating speed (rpm) to prevent premature component wear or failure.

NON-DPF ENGINE
The biggest advantage of our Tier 4 solution is simplicity. Bobcat engines meet Tier 4 regulations without a diesel particulate filter (DPF). This reduces downtime that occurs with DPF regeneration and long-term DPF maintenance costs. That allows operators to focus on working.

COMFORT FEATURES

PREMIUM CAB
When you step in the cab of a Bobcat® loader, you’ll immediately notice the attention given to operator comfort. Premium features are included everywhere you look. Cab pressurization, sound dampening, ample headroom and legroom, and an adjustable suspension seat are just the beginning.

SOUND DAMPENING
If you work on a busy jobsite, you know that noise can be a daily frustration. Bobcat® loaders include many sound dampening features that keep your cab quieter.

CLEAR VISIBILITY
Bobcat® skid-steer loader and compact track loader cabs are designed for all-around visibility. As you grade next to a building or load the machine on a trailer, you’ll gain better sight lines for easier operation. View the bucket corners from your seat and easily see the cutting edge. Your tracks or tires are visible without raising the loader arms. A large top window gives you visibility while dumping material into a high-sided truck.

OPERATOR-FRIENDLY CONTROLS
Time-tested controls on Bobcat® skid-steer loaders and compact track loaders make it easier to work longer and perform precise work. The engine speed control is conveniently located in front of you. Fingertip controls simplify the operation of soil conditioners, sweepers, tillers, buckets, grapples and other attachments. Foot pedals can be adjusted to your preferences.

ADJUSTABLE SEAT
Adjustable seats on our skid-steer loaders and compact track loaders set new standards for comfort. No matter your height, it’s easy to find a comfortable operating position with multiple adjustment points. With the optional air ride seat, you’ll experience maximum suspension comfort. It adjusts to your weight, helping you smooth out the bumps on your jobsite.

MAXIMUM HEADROOM AND LEGROOM
Bobcat® skid-steer loaders and compact track loaders are engineered with large swing-open doors, and a lowered door threshold, which provide ample headroom for exit and entry. Inside, even tall operators will be comfortable with plenty of headroom. Additionally, the swing-open door doesn't take up cab space and can be removed without tools.

PRESSURIZED CAB
In your line of work, you have to dive right in – where the dirt, dust, mud and debris are at their worst. Bobcat® loaders with enclosed cabs have a best-in-class pressurized interior space that minimizes dust, keeping you clean and comfortable. The one-piece seal and unique, curved door pocket ensure the best-possible protection. Keep warm air in the cab during frigid conditions, and ensure that cool air keeps you comfortable on hot days.

LIFT CYLINDER CUSHIONING
You’ll experience smoother arm movements with lift cylinder cushioning. It eliminates the need for manual arm slowing and reduces harsh movements. For you, that means less vibration, quieter operation and increased comfort.

SERVICEABILITY FEATURES

PANORAMIC SERVICEABILITY
No other loader matches the serviceability of Bobcat® skid-steer loaders and compact track loaders. You receive easy, full access to the engine checks and fills, filters and battery. Unlike other brands, the lift arms do not need to be raised to service the machine. Spend your time completing maintenance work, rather than struggling to gain access.

GREASE POINT ACCESS
Maintenance is easier and faster with easy-to-access grease zerk locations on critical pivot points. Avoid laying on the ground or standing on tracks to grease the pins.

HYDRAULIC OIL SITE GAUGE
Check your hydraulic oil level quickly and easily as you walk by your machine. Keep an eye on hydraulic oil levels and simplify your daily checks.

TRANSVERSE ENGINE AND BELT DRIVE
Bobcat® loaders offer one-sided serviceability thanks to the exclusive belt-drive system. This durable technology with a multi-groove Kevlar™ belt allows your loader engine to run slower for reduced noise and increased durability. It’s also more efficient with an optimized engine-to-pump package.

ATTACHMENT FEATURES

ATTACHMENT VERSATILITY
Our attachments truly help you do more than dig. Bobcat offers attachment versatility across carriers combined with unbeatable attachment support from the Bobcat dealer network. Quick couplers deliver clean, rapid attachment changes every time, and the attachment control kit simplifies operation. High-flow hydraulics provide a big power boost on selected attachments.

POWER BOB-TACH SYSTEM
