Bobcat Skid-Steer Loaders Measure Up

No matter how you measure it, Bobcat® skid-steer loaders offer more value for your money than any other brand.

Bobcat S185 Loader

Durable Bobcat skid-steer loaders take on tough jobs.

The new K-Series features—such as more productive K-Force hydraulics and the more efficient, variable-speed SmartFAN are just the latest example of how Bobcat's long-standing leadership in innovative engineering adds value to your loader. Here are some others:

More standard features. All K-Series Bobcat loaders are equipped with such standard equipment as an engine/hydraulic systems shutdown, deluxe cab, dual function (maximum flow or variable flow) front auxiliary hydraulics and front and rear working lights. And don't forget serviceability. It's unsurpassed.

More choices. No skid-steer loader manufacturer offers more choices in sizes and types of loaders to best meet your own individual needs and desires—11 different small-, mid- and large-frame models in all. Choose a compact, standard wheelbase machine for maximum maneuverability and a radius lift path for great all around performance. Or select a smooth-riding long wheelbase model, with either a radius lift path or a long-reaching vertical lift path for optimal loading efficiency.

More efficient operation. Don't be misled by horsepower ratings. Excessive horsepower wastes costly fuel. Bobcat loaders are designed as a balanced system to make the most of your horsepower and your money. That includes balancing such factors as wheelbase, tread width and weight distribution. As a result, Bobcat loaders tend to weigh less and require less horsepower to achieve top performance. Other money-saving features include belt drive, instead of direct drive, and a dual-path cooling system, both of which reduce operating costs and extend engine life.

More durability. Bobcat loaders are built for long, dependable operation in the most demanding jobsite environments. Drive chains never need adjustment and axle bearings never need greasing. Engine and hydraulic system shutdown automatically protects the machine from possible catastrophic failure.
More options. High-flow auxiliary hydraulics improve attachment performance. Speed management gives you more precise balance of power, torque and travel speed. Also available for added comfort and convenience are an enclosed, heated and air conditioned cab, a choice of all-hand or low-effort joystick hydraulic control and Power Bob-Tach system for attachment mounting.
