Responding to customers requests for a smoother ride from compact track loaders, Bobcat has developed a roller suspension system, which is currently available as an option for the company’s T320 compact track loader and will become available for other of the company’s rubber-track models later this year. In the new suspension system, the rollers are suspended by high-strength- steel leaf springs as a means of reducing vibration. In addition, the new system used track idlers that have been raised to make the machine easier to turn. A further advance built into the new suspension system is provision for a larger area around the sprocket to facilitate cleaning.
