  • Performance

    Attachment Control Kit (Option)

    Makes it possible for the loader and attachment to communicate.

    Bob-Tach™ Mounting System

    Easily change attachments in less than a minute.

    Control in Your Hands

    Control the drive, engine torque and tractive effort without an engine anti-stall system robbing you of power when you need it most.

    Faster Cycle Times

    Hydraulic pumps are matched to cylinder size and loader lift capacity, helping you get your work done faster.

    Hydraulic Bucket Positioning (Option)

    Keeps your bucket level when raising lift arms, reducing spillage and allowing you to work more efficiently.

    More Torque

    Reach maximum torque at a lower rpm to minimize stalling and save time and fuel.

    Power Bob-Tach™ Mounting System (Option)

    Change non-hydraulic attachments by flipping a switch from the comfort of your cab.

    Powerful Breakout Forces

    Highly-efficient hydraulic pumps deliver more power that's matched to each movement.

    Quicker Turning

    Ideal weight distribution provides the best turning and skidding performance. A distribution of 70 percent of weight in the rear and 30 percent in the front reduces fuel consumption and increases the life of the drive train and tires.

    Quick Couplers with Pressure Release

    Simply push the coupler inward to release the hydraulic oil through a return line back into the machine. The result is clean, quick attachment changes.

    Selectable Joystick Control (Option)

    Get better control and more comfort. SJC features speed and horsepower management, drive response, steering drift compensation, selectable control pattern and increased comfort.

    Stronger Hydraulics

    The engine, hydraulic pump, horsepower and cubic-inch displacement are precisely configured for each machine's specific operating capacity.

    Transverse Engine/Belt Drive

    Belt-drive system allows the engine to run slower, enabling the machine to run quieter and longer.

  • Uptime

    Battery Run-Down Protection

    The lighting circuit automatically shuts down to prevent accidental battery discharge when the lights are left on after the work is done.

    Dual Path Cooling

    Cool, clean air is drawn from above through the oil cooler and radiator, with small amounts of hot air from the engine compartment. Air is exhausted out two side vents, keeping hot air away from the operator.

    Keel Shaped Undercarriage

    A keel-shaped undercarriage gives the loader higher ground clearance and sheds debris to the outside much like the way a “V” shaped boat slices through water.

    Machine Shutdown Protection

    Tracks engine coolant temperature, engine oil pressure and hydraulic oil temperature and shuts down the machine's engine when there's a problem.

    Maintenance-Free Chaincase

    The rugged 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.

    Maintenance-Free Axle Bearings

    Axle bearings are automatically lubricated with chaincase oil and never require manual greasing.

    No Adjustments

    Chaincase requires no adjustments, ever.

    Protected Cooling Location

    Loader radiator and hydraulic oil cooler are well protected between the frame uprights, above the engine and out of danger.

    Self-Diagnostics

    On-board diagnostics efficiently troubleshoot problems in the field or prevent them before they occur. Downloadable machine performance history lets you identify potential problems and correct them.

    Single Plane Design

    Every pin and connecting point is on the same plane, which greatly reduces side deflection of the lift arm and increases lift arm life.

    Tougher Axles

    Compared to similar-sized loaders, our axles are the biggest in both size and weight. This means you can handle the most rugged conditions without worrying about possible downtime.

  • Serviceability

    Protected Tailgate

    Crafted from one piece of 1/4 in. solid steel, the heavy-duty tailgate doesn't have cooling holes, slots or other openings that could allow obstructions to damage the engine.

    Transverse Engine/ Superior Serviceability

    Enjoy the fastest and easiest maintenance in the industry. Perform daily maintenance like checking the engine fluids, filters, battery and air cleaner simply by opening the tailgate.

    Tilt-Up Cab

    Non-routine maintenance items can be accessed easily, so you can spend time on maintenance or repair, not gaining access.

    Training

    Get the world's only comprehensive training program when you purchase Bobcat equipment.
