Every customer who buys a Bobcat® skid-steer loader has high expectations for the machine, and rightfully so. Bobcat skid-steer loaders consistently produce results at a high level, are easy to operate and maintain, have a comfortable operator cab, offer attachment versatility, are reliable and durable, are cost-effective and have solid dealer support. Since the first skid-steer loader was built, only the Bobcat brand has continuously met and exceeded owner expectations.

13 models

With 13 skid-steer loader models and an all-wheel steer loader model, Bobcat can best match the machine to the job, allowing owners to efficiently handle the most challenging applications. Choose from 11 M-Series units, including the one-of-a-kind A770 all-wheel steer loader, offering superior operator comfort, good all-around visibility and impressive hydraulic performance. Three smaller loaders — the S70, S100 and S130 — are ideal for working in confined or limited-access areas such as dairy barns or backyards. Select from six radius-lift-path models or eight vertical-path models, depending on reach and lift height needs. Options such as deluxe instrumentation, enclosed cabs with heat and air conditioning, and high-flow auxiliary hydraulics allow owners to create the machine that best fits the application.

Exceptional cab

Bobcat M-Series cabs offer the ultimate in comfort and visibility, two factors that go a long way toward working productively. The cab is substantially larger with up to 20 percent more interior space than other brands and has the biggest front opening for easy entry and exit. It also has the best-in-class pressurized cab and can be equipped with a sound reduction option to lower noise inside the cab. Visibility in all directions has been increased with larger windows and a design that moved the cab to the front of the loader, providing a clearer view of the attachment and work area.

Multiple control options

All of the common control patterns found on compact machines are available on Bobcat skid-steer loaders. Choose from standard controls, standard controls with power assist (S850), an Advanced Control System or Selectable Joystick Controls. There is even a radio remote control system for operating the loader from outside of the cab — a perfect solution when operating in hot, dirty and dusty conditions such as unloading barges or completing demolition tasks.

More attachments = more jobs

Get the most out of a Bobcat skid-steer loader with more than 60 Bobcat-approved attachments. Adding an attachment can help owners solve a problem, take their business in a new direction or complete a project easier and faster. Easily change attachments with the standard Bob-Tach® attachment mounting system. For even faster changes, there is the optional hydraulic Power Bob-Tach system to switch non-hydraulic attachments from inside the cab.

Reliable performance

Bobcat skid-steer loaders have a long history of reliability. These better-built machines rely on such industry-leading features as a maintenance-free chaincase, tougher axles, fully sealed and protected bearings, the largest and strongest drive chains, and automatic machine shutdown protection. The cooling system in Bobcat M-Series skid-steer loaders is in a class by itself. To reduce noise inside the cab, the Bobcat hydraulically powered SmartFAN only turns as fast as needed. The patented, dual-path cooling system draws cool, clean air from above while forcing hot air from the engine compartment and directing it out through two side vents. The radiator and hydraulic oil cooler are located above the engine, well protected between the frame uprights yet easily maintained.
