Bobcat Company has introduced its Tier 4-compliant 700 frame-size compact track loader. The Bobcat® T740 is powered by a diesel engine that is under 75 horsepower and does not require a diesel particulate filter (DPF), selective catalytic reduction (SCR) or diesel exhaust fluid (DEF).
The T740 is a large, powerful machine that works well in construction, landscaping, agriculture, buildings and grounds, and other market segments. This machine joins the M-Series compact loader line and share features such as improved power and performance, better visibility and superior operator comfort.
The new T740 is designed to work long hours on demanding jobsites. The vertical-lift-path loaders are designed to lift loads higher so it’s easier to clear high-sided truck boxes and hoppers.
The hydraulic systems on M-Series loaders also have higher standard flow and pressure, for increased attachment performance. An optional 30.5-gpm high-flow hydraulic option gives T740 operators more attachment power, boosting machine productivity. More than 60 genuine Bobcat attachments are approved for use with the T740.
No DPF needed
Bobcat T740 compact track loaders use a diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC) to meet Tier 4 emission standards, but without the need for a DPF. The DOC is a special catalyst that reacts with engine exhaust upon contact and transforms combustion byproducts into water and carbon dioxide.
The Tier 4-compliant Bobcat non-DPF solution features an ultra-low particulate combustion (ULPC) engine with a specifically designed engine combustion chamber that significantly reduces the amounts of particulate matter created during combustion — making Tier 4 compliance possible without using a DPF.
Like all M-Series compact track loaders, the T740 features a unique cab-forward design that moves operators closer to the attachment and the work area, plus provides unmatched visibility in all directions. The new loader has the largest cab door opening on the market, improving visibility to attachments, particularly to the cutting edge and corners of the bucket.
Large side and rear windows on the cab provide more visibility to the tires or tracks, as well as the back of the machine. The large top window makes it easier and more comfortable for the operator when performing tasks like loading trucks or tall hoppers.
The best-in-class pressurized cab includes a one-piece seal that goes all the way around the door and fits into a special curved pocket. This minimizes the amount of dirt and dust that enters the cab, creating better working conditions plus it makes it easier to keep the cab clean.
Standard controls with power assist are the base control configuration for the T740. Selectable Joystick Controls (SJC) are available as an option.
Maintenance made easy
Simple check points and superior loader design elements make it easier to perform maintenance at the proper intervals. Auxiliary quick couplers are mounted directly to the front plate of the lift arm to provide a solid mounting, and hoses are routed through the loader arms for better protection. A guard bar extends in the front of the coupler for added protection and to minimize downtime.
The cooling system on the M-Series T740 allows for increased efficiency, is easy-to-clean, increases machine performance and helps prolong the service life of the machine.
