MT55Even with an operating weight of 2,679 pounds, the MT55's "turf-friendly" tracks lower the machine's ground pressure to 4.1 psi. This mini track loader has a rated operating capacity of 550 pounds and is driven by a 23.5-hp Kubota liquid-cooled diesel engine. For handling its range of 18 different attachments, the new machine has an auxiliary hydraulic system that delivers a flow of 12 gpm and a pressure of 2,900 psi. The MT55 also has an optional ride-on platform that can be installed or removed, says Bobcat, in a matter of seconds.
