Bobcat Raises the Bar for Compact Track Loaders
Two tough, durable M-Series machines added to lineup
Compact track loaders are the equipment of choice for many applications and situations, especially for tough, demanding jobs when the ground is wet, soft and muddy, and when you want to expand the work season in the early spring and late fall.

New M-Series loaders
The M-Series machines — the most recent breakthrough in Bobcat innovation — bring a whole new dimension to the compact track loader industry. Operator comfort and visibility has been taken to a different level with a cab-forward design, larger windows and door, an unmatched pressurized cab and significantly reduced noise levels.
M-Series loaders have also raised the bar for performance. Hydraulic systems generate high standard flow and pressure to significantly improve attachment operation. Hydraulic horsepower has been increased by more than 15 percent. Tractive effort is up 15 to 20 percent. These and dozens of other enhancements add up to an entirely new way to look at compact track loaders. That's why, when the choice is a compact track loader, the choice is Bobcat.
Nine models to choose from
With nine compact track loaders, Bobcat has just the right machine for your job, ranging in size from 50 to 80 inches wide (with bucket) and from 42 to 92 horsepower. Five are radius-lift-path and four are vertical-lift-path models. As a group they have the best horsepower-to-weight ratios available.
These machines have the features that have made Bobcat® compact track loaders the popular choice for more than a decade, including:
- Easy maintenance with a fully enclosed steel undercarriage with very few moving parts and steel rollers and idlers that are permanently sealed and lubricated. The elevated sprocket design sheds mud and debris as the loader is operated.
- Outstanding power due to direct-drive motors, a solid-mounted undercarriage and a balance between machine weight and horsepower.
- A smoother ride because the offset C-pattern tracks and machine weight are distributed over a larger area. An optional Roller Suspension™ system — available on the T180 and larger units — has all-steel components and few moving parts for durability while increasing operator comfort and loader performance.
- Steel track undercarriage option. See T300 photo to right.
