S130 Skid-Steer Loader

S130

Strong. Compact. Maneuverable. The S130's 60 in. width (with option to 54 in.) makes this a great performer for its size – and the tight, 6-foot turning radius lets you handle big jobs in small areas. It's perfect for a variety of applications such as construction, landscaping, excavating, fertilizer plants, foundries and much more. The roomy, quiet cab is easy to enter and exit and the versatile Bob-tach attachment mounting system provides fast, secure attachment changes.

Deluxe Instrumentation Panel: This intelligent Bobcat option helps you prevent theft with keyless start and enables better operation by closely monitoring and interacting with your machine.

Fingertip Controls: Attachments are more comfortable to operate, controlled easily and adjusted simply from the fingertip controls.

Heat: Automotive-style vents allow you to point your air where you need it for greater comfort in all weather conditions.

Large Entry: In machines with enclosed cabs, large swing-open doors provide ample room for exit and entry.

Radio Capable: The radio features an auxiliary audio input jack that is ready for an MP3 player or other audio device.

Suspension Seat: Other comfort items include an optional fully adjustable suspension seat, adjusting easily to the operator’s weight.

Attachment Control Device: In simplest terms, the optional Attachment Control Device makes it possible for the loader and attachment to communicate.

Bob-Tach® Attachment Mounting System : Change attachments in less than a minute! You can replace a bucket with a pallet fork, landscape rake, auger, grapple, and more than 55 Bobcat attachments quickly and easily with the Bob-Tach® mounting system.

Control in Your Hands: With Bobcat compact skid-steer loaders, you can feel and control the loader’s drive, engine torque and tractive effort—you can push your machine to the limit without an engine anti-stall system robbing you of power when you need it the most.

Faster Cycle Times: Hydraulic pumps in Bobcat loaders are matched to cylinder size and loader lift capacity to provide fast cycle times that help you get the job done faster.

Hydraulic Bucket Positioning: Optional hydraulic bucket positing keeps your bucket level when raising lift arms, reducing spillage and allowing you to work more efficiently.

More Torque: Bobcat loaders reach maximum torque at a lower RPM to minimize stalling and save time and fuel.

Powerful Breakout Forces: High-efficiency hydraulic pumps deliver more power, matched to demand and providing breakout forces.

Quick Couplers with Pressure Release: By simply pushing the coupler inward, the hydraulic oil is released through a return line back into the machine. The result is clean, quick attachment changes time after time.

Quicker Turning: Bobcat’s weight distribution has been designed for the best turning and skidding to deliver ideal performance, with 70% of distribution in the rear and 30% in the front. This quick turning reduces fuel consumption and power requirements from the engine, increasing the life of drive train and tires.

Remote Control: All loaders equipped with Selectable Joystick Control or All Wheel Steer can be operated by the Radio Remote Control. Bobcat Company is the first and only company to introduce a new way to operate your equipment without having to have an operator in the cab. This is a smart solution for hot, dusty environments or on jobs where you’d rather be outside of the machine.

Ride Control Option: Optional ride control is the cushioning of the loader lift circuit, which helps increase the smoothness of the ride.

Stronger Hydraulics: The Bobcat engine, hydraulic pump, horsepower and cubic-inch displacement are configured precisely for each model’s specific operating capacity.

Transverse Engine/ Belt Drive: Thanks to the Bobcat belt-drive system, loader engines can be run slower, resulting in a quieter machine that lasts longer. This drive belt system allows Bobcat loaders to use an optimized engine-to-pump package, making it more efficient.

Battery Run-Down Protection: The lighting circuit automatically shuts down to prevent accidental battery discharge.

Dual Path Cooling: The loader draws in a majority of cool, clean air from above through the oil cooler and radiator, while small amounts of hot air are drawn out of the engine compartment. The combination is then exhausted out two side vents, keeping hot air away from the operator, providing more efficient cooling and keeping engine components clean.

Keel Shaped Undercarriage: Why can Bobcat skid steer loaders go through so much more? Because they are the only skid steer loaders with a keel shaped undercarriage. This gives you higher ground clearance and sheds debris to the outside much like the way a “V” shaped boat slices through water.

Machine Shutdown Protection : Bobcat loaders come standard with automatic shutdown that monitors engine and hydraulic functions. The system alerts the operator and actually shuts the machine down—lessening the chance of damage to the engine or hydraulic components.

Maintenance-Free Chaincase: The rugged Bobcat chaincase is the only maintenance-free chaincase in the industry with exclusive fixed axle tubes, stronger axles, fully sealed bearings, plus the largest chains in the industry.

No Adjustments: The Bobcat chaincase requires no adjustments, ever.

No-Maintenance Axle Bearings: Bobcat axle bearings are automatically lubricated with chaincase oil—so they never need greasing.

Protected Cooling Location: The Bobcat loader radiator and hydraulic oil cooler are well protected between the frame uprights, above the engine and out of danger.

Radius Lift Path: Radius lift path provides maximum reach at truck bed height. Arm movement forms an arc that delivers a better reach than at flatbed truck height. A radius lift path excels in jobs at mid-range heights, like dumping over a wall, backfilling or unloading flatbed trucks.

Self-Diagnostics: Bobcat loaders provide on-board diagnostics to efficiently troubleshoot problems in the field or prevent them before they occur —reducing downtime for you. Downloadable machine performance history also cuts a huge chunk out of the time needed to identify potential problems and correct them.

Single Plane Design: The patented single plane design of Bobcat loader lift arms is superior to other machines. We keep every pin and connecting point in the same plane, greatly reducing the side deflection of the lift arm. This stronger design leads to longer lift arm life because there is less chance of failure and better wearing.

Tougher Axles: Bobcat axles are by far the largest axles in size and weight to any comparable-sized loader. Stronger axles mean you can handle the most rugged conditions without worrying about possible downtime.

Protective Tailgate: The one piece 1/4”inch thick door is solid steel. There are no cooling holes, slots or other openings on the heavy-duty door that could potentially lead to extra time in the shop.

Transverse Engine/Superior serviceability: Bobcat loaders are designed for fastest and easiest servicing in the industry. Every single daily maintenance items such as engine fluid check, filters, battery, air cleaner and other components are out in the open when you open the thick tailgate.

Tilt-Up Cab: Bobcat created the tilt-up cab for non-routine maintenance, so shop time is spent on maintenance or repair, not gaining access.

Training: Bobcat Company offers the world’s only comprehensive training courses for loaders, VersaHandlers, loader backhoes, Toolcat utility work machines, backhoe and planer attachments, and compact excavators.
