Equipment Type

 Compact Track Loaders

Compact track loaders are essentially skid steer loaders with high-flotation rubber tracks, allowing these versatile machines to work in poor underfoot conditions and on sensitive surfaces. Like the skid steer, mini track loader has auxiliary hydraulics for powering attachments, and its flat-footed nature suits it well for grading, sometimes with a laser-based grade-control system.


The MT85 mini track loader is a new model with a rated operating capacity of 850 pounds

The Tier 4-compliant, vertical-lift-path Bobcat T740 CTL is powered by a diesel engine under 75 horsepower

The 700- and 800-frame size loaders are now Tier 4-compliant with a Bobcat engine that uses SCR, CEGR and DOC.

New Holland Construction 200 Series skid steers and compact track loaders (CTLs) feature new, more powerful engines

The 200 Series skid steer and compact track loaders have been upgraded with Tier 4-Final engines.
