When it comes to performance, Bobcat® loaders are in a class by themselves. Each component – including the engine, pumps and hydraulic system – is engineered to deliver maximum hydraulic performance so you can work quicker, lift more and outperform your competition.
The cast-steel lift arm sections of the R-Series loaders are stronger to ensure optimal performance. Combined with the optimized lift-arm linkage, you can handle more challenging jobs with greater confidence and ease.
With Bobcat Standard Controls, available on select models, a lever controls the drive on each side independently, while your feet control the lift arms and bucket. The farther you stroke the lever, the faster you go. The shorter the stroke, the more torque is delivered to the wheels or tracks – allowing maximum power for pushing into a pile. This tried-and-true system is still a popular style of control.
Automatic ride control reduces material spillage, allowing you to travel at faster speeds across rough terrain. Thanks to its dampening effect, this option also increases operator comfort by offering a smoother ride.
The Two-Speed travel option boosts your top travel speed. Reduce your travel time across jobsites, limit the need to load and unload your machine on a trailer, and shorten your long-haul tasks.
All loaders equipped with Selectable Joystick Control (SJC) can be operated by a remote control system, so you can operate the machine without having to have an operator in the cab. The remote control is completely portable. If you have multiple machines, you can quickly remove the remote from one machine and attach it to another in minutes.
It's easy to see why Bobcat Selectable Joystick Controls (SJC) is becoming the most popular control choice among operators. Our low-effort joysticks are loaded with Bobcat-exclusive features and fingertip switches to help you control your loader and attachments more easily and comfortably. No other joystick in the industry even comes close to delivering the level of customisation and control you'll find with SJC. We put the power in your hands!
An easy-to-read display panel provides full-featured machine interaction and monitoring capabilities from inside the cab. Run your equipment more efficiently and solve more problems in the field with the innovative IQ display, which supports multiple languages.
With the most advanced in-cab display for compact equipment, you’ll experience detailed machine information and unprecedented device connectivity. The optional Touch Display features a 800x480-pixel display resolution. Operators can easily view and toggle through machine performance and information on the wide, easy-to-use touchscreen that supports seven languages. Plus, it’s waterproof and hardened to reduce scratching.
R-Series loaders feature a Bobcat® engine. An efficient design provides the performance you need while reducing and simplifying routine maintenance. Thanks to an innovative new fuel system, low fuel levels are more forgiving for busy operators. The engine also improves cold-weather operation and includes a variety of features that make maintenance and service more convenient.
Dual-direction bucket positioning, offered on R-Series loaders, keeps the load at a consistent angle throughout the lift cycle – both up and down – to reduce spilling which increases efficiency and improves ease of operation.
With two lift path options, Bobcat® skid-steer loaders have you covered. Vertical lift path machines provide more reach at full lift height, while radius lift path models offer maximum reach at truck bed height. The durable and patented single-plane design reduces side-to-side lift arm movement and minimizes load on the pins.
You'll feel so comfortable and at-home in the cab of your Bobcat® skid-steer loader (SSL) or compact track loader (CTL) that you won't want to leave it! You’ll particularly appreciate the premium features and operator-friendly design. View your work area more easily, work at a pleasant temperature, sit comfortably and stay fresh with minimal fatigue. Many comfort options found in Bobcat loaders aren’t even available on other machines.
If you work on a busy jobsite, you know that noise can be a daily frustration. Bobcat® loaders include many sound dampening features that keep your cab quieter.
R-Series loaders maximize open viewing areas by minimizing and removing surfaces and structures that intrude on your sightlines. Thanks to innovative engineering, robust materials and cutting-edge manufacturing, you get the best view on the jobsite.
You'll find it easier to work for longer and perform precise work with the time-tested operator friendly controls on Bobcat® skid-steer loaders and compact track loaders. 1) The engine speed control is conveniently located in front of you. 2) The fingertip controls simplify the operation of Bobcat attachments such as soil conditioners, sweepers, tillers, buckets and grapples. 3) You can adjust the foot pedals to suit your preferences.
Bobcat® skid-steer loaders and compact track loaders are engineered with large swing-open doors, and a lowered door threshold, which provide ample headroom for exit and entry. Inside, even tall operators will be comfortable with plenty of headroom. Additionally, the swing-open door doesn't take up cab space and can be removed without tools.
If you work on a busy jobsite, you know that noise can be a daily frustration. Smooth, quick Bobcat® lift cylinders are automatically cushioned at the fully lowered position. The tilt cylinders are also cushioned at the full dump and rollback positions. This reduces noise and increases comfort during operation.
Maneuver more confidently. Enhance your productivity. Easily see to the sides of your machine. R-Series loaders offer an optional enclosure that maximizes visibility by reducing steel mesh screens from the side windows. The mesh-free windows are made from 3/8-inch thick polycarbonate with an abrasion-resistant coating to allow the optimal view you demand with the durability you expect.
A one-piece, sealed and pressurized cab on R-Series loaders provides a near-seamless interior for a new level of operator comfort. The cab design along with improved seals help reduce noise and vibration for enhanced sound isolation. There are no maintenance items under the rear hood for improved access to hose and electronic connections and major components. Most service items can be accessed without raising the lift arm.
Loader seats are upholstered in comfortable, breathable cloth and equipped with operator-controlled heat for warmth in cold weather. This optional seat provides peak operator comfort with air suspension that adjusts to your weight, smoothing out bumps on the jobsite for an industry-leading operator experience.
You can check your hydraulic oil level quickly and easily as you walk by your machine. Always keep an eye on hydraulic oil levels and simplify your daily checks.
No other loaders are as easy to access for maintenance and servicing as Bobcat® skid-steer loaders (SSL) and compact track loaders (CTL). You receive easy, full access to the engine checks and fills, filters and battery. Unlike other brands, you do not need to raise the lift arms to service the machine. So you can spend your time completing maintenance work, rather than struggling to gain access.
On R-Series loaders, the battery is located under the cab – separated from the engine compartment. Just lift the one-piece cab away for easy access. It's a convenient service location that protects the condition of your battery and provides more room for component access in the engine compartment. A remote terminal, located in the engine compartment, makes it easy to charge the battery or jumpstart the loader if needed.
When it's time for maintenance or repairs, simply lift the entire R-Series cab out of the way using the hardware on the exterior of the cab.
Bobcat makes maintenance simpler and faster with easy-to-access grease point locations on critical pivot points. So you don't have to lie on the ground or stand on the wheels or tracks to grease the pins.
R-Series loaders won't let you down. Critical components are protected from jobsite hazards, vibrations and tough conditions to keep your machine in operation and you on the job.
The redesigned Bobcat® engine on R-Series loaders offers a variety of fuel features, including an efficient fuel tank vent filter, fuel filter pressure sensor, improved fuel recirculation value and more to improve performance and uptime to keep you running strong all day long.
You can secure your Bobcat skid-steer loader or compact track loader quickly, without having to search for hard-to-reach tie-downs. The tie-downs are easy to locate and use.
R-Series loaders not only look tougher – they are tougher. Bobcat® lift arms feature cast-steel construction for increased material strength and rigidity. Cast-steel allows more material where it's needed, which provides greater strength while enabling a slimmer profile arm that also enhances visibility.
As operators trust compact equipment to run longer and do bigger, more difficult jobs, better cooling is essential. The R-Series cooling system is completely redesigned for optimal operation and maximum uptime.
Our attachments truly help you do more than dig. Bobcat offers attachment versatility across carriers combined with unbeatable attachment support from the Bobcat dealer network.
With the standard Bob-Tach® mounting system you can change an attachment on your loader in less than a minute. So you can easily use different attachments - bucket, auger, landscape rake, grapple and many others - throughout your day. Developed more than 35 years ago, the Bob-Tach system is time-tested.
Several attachments require control of more than one function, and our small, seven-pin attachment harness activates power and fingertip control functions while eliminating the need for the mechanical relays used on other loaders. Controls are fully integrated with your Bobcat® loader for a clean look and protected routing.
