Small machines produce big-time results

Bobcat mini track loaders eliminate manual labor in many backbreaking applications

MT55

When the jobsite location or situation limits the type of equipment you can use, a Bobcat mini track loader can be the difference between being efficient and struggling to complete a project. In many circumstances a Bobcat MT52 or MT55 is the answer to the question: What can I use to do this job quickly, easily and productively; without wheelbarrows, shovels and a group of laborers?

Compact size

The challenge of jobsite accessibility can be easily overcome with a Bobcat mini track loader. These machines are just 49 inches high, 72 inches long and 36 inches wide. The MT55 has a wide track option making it 42 inches wide. That allows you to drive them through narrow doorways and gates. Use them to work under decks, between homes, inside buildings and other sites where space is limited. And they have easy-to-use controls to drive the machine and operate attachments.

Attachments add value

Considering their size, Bobcat mini track loaders have an impressive operating capacity, cycle times and lift height. Combine an MT52 or MT55 with 20 Bobcat-approved attachments for superior jobsite production when space is an issue. Use them to dig, auger, till, trench, move materials and scores of other jobs. Changing attachments is fast and easy with the standard Bob-Tach™ attachment mounting system.

Turf friendly

Rubber tracks provide a big advantage for the MT52 and MT55. The rubber track undercarriage distributes the machine weight, reducing ground pressure to just 4.7 psi for the MT52 and 3.6 psi with the wide track option on the MT55. As a result, damage to lawns and other established surfaces is minimized, making expensive and time-consuming jobsite repairs unnecessary. In addition to being turf-friendly, the tracks provide improved traction in loose, wet or soft soil conditions.

Ride on or walk behind

When operating a Bobcat mini track loader, you decide if you want to walk behind the machine or ride on the optional platform. Riding on the platform is a convenient and comfortable way to work. Quick-release pin connectors make attaching the platform fast and easy. Removal is just as simple.

Safety features

Standard safety features on Bobcat mini track loaders include a reverse-travel stop panel that returns the drive levers to neutral when pushed in. This stops the machine and prevents it from moving backward. A parking brake prevents an MT52 or MT55 from moving when not in use. Accidental movement of the lift arms or attachment is prevented with a lift arm and tilt lockout system (with manual bypass).

Don't waste time sweating the small stuff — turn to a Bobcat mini track loader to get in and get the job done fast and efficiently.
