Bobcat 700 and 800 skid-steer, compact track, and all-wheel steer loaders have increased hydraulic pressures and breakout and lift forces.
Bobcat 700 and 800 skid-steer, compact track, and all-wheel steer loaders have increased hydraulic pressures and breakout and lift forces. Tier 4-Interim diesels have been added to the range of loaders, which includes seven M-Series loaders: the S750, S770, and S850 skid-steers; the A770 all-wheel steer; and the T750, T770 and T870 CTLs. Bobcat says engine rpm recovery is faster with the new engines. Loaders with Selectable Joystick Controls have available an optional auto-idle function that automatically activates, causing the engine rpm to drop to idle if a loader’s functions are not used within five seconds. With the optional deluxe instrument panel, operators can set a preferred activation time between four and 240 seconds. Horsepower management is now based on engine torque instead of rpm. A new hydraulic control valve allows use of the tilt function regardless of auxiliary system pressure. The instrument panel has been upgraded for simplified navigation and more in-depth information on operator and machine performance. A 5-inch, full-color LCD screen includes a display titled Machine Performance that provides to “owner-level individuals” user login information, overall job statistics, and user job statistics.
Brushcat rotary cutter attachments are designed to help compact equipment operators cut overgrown grass, brush, and small trees, transforming the undergrowth into mulch.
The M Series S450 skid steer replaces the K Series S130, and the M Series T450 reintroduces a compact-track-loader platform size.
