Operator Friendly Controls

Operator-Friendly Controls

With the operator-friendly controls on Bobcat® skid-steer loaders and compact track loaders, you’re able to precisely control your machine and attachments. An engine speed control is in front of you on the right-hand corner post of the cab. Plus, you can adjust the foot pedal position to match your preferences.

Fingertip Controls

Bobcat compact track loader and skid-steer loader fingertip controls.

Fingertip controls make your attachment comfortable to operate, easy to control and simple to adjust while driving. Dual-direction detent allows hydraulic flow to be engaged continuously, in either direction, without holding a switch. Lock the flow in the opposite direction for soil conditioners, sweepers, tillers and other attachments. Variable hydraulic flow allows you to slowly move cylinders when working with a grapple.

Low-Effort Standard Controls

Bobcat S650 skid-steer loader with grapple attachment picks up chunks of concrete on a construction jobsite.

Available as a standard feature for 600 and 700 frame size loaders, a low-effort hydrostatic pump reduces drive lever effort by as much as 25 percent. Loaders equipped with Bobcat standard controls or the Advanced Control System (ACS) use this new pump, which will help decrease operator fatigue, especially for operators who are in their machine for an extended amount of time.
