If you work in confined jobsites and are tired of backbreaking, time-consuming hand labor, you need a machine that can travel to tight spaces and quickly complete projects where larger machines can’t fit.
The Bobcat® MT85 mini track loader could be the perfect solution, thanks to its compact size, attachment versatility, easy-to-use controls and low ground disturbance. It has the ability to turn within its tracks, with minimal turf damage.
Its compact size, which is ideal for traveling through fence gates, through backyard projects, between homes or into other tight areas, makes the MT85 a smart choice to replace tasks previously done with manual labor and hand tools.
The Bobcat MT85 boasts more power, increased lifting capabilities, additional stability and durable components to help operators efficiently complete everyday or challenging tasks in limited-space jobsites.
You’ll also benefit from its attachment versatility — you can use the MT85 as a stand-alone machine or pair it with other Bobcat compact equipment to efficiently complete a variety of projects.
The MT85 has a 54 percent higher rated operating capacity (ROC) than prior mini track loader iterations — rated at 850 pounds — to lift, carry and dump materials.
An efficient hydraulic system produces fast cycle times, impressive tractive effort, strong hydraulic breakout force, and exceptional pushing and digging abilities.
The MT85 is a dependable and rugged mini track loader that offers easy access to the engine compartment for routine maintenance. Bobcat engineers designed the MT85 based on the similar mini track loaders that have been popular machines for more than a decade. Input from Bobcat mini track loader customers led the company to design a machine that is taller, with greater ground clearance and an additional 6 inches of track length on the ground for added stability and a smoother ride without sacrificing the quality design aspects from prior iterations.
The MT85 is designed with dual ISO joystick controls for overall increased operator precision and comfort. The loader’s drive function is controlled by the left-hand joystick. The right-hand joystick controls the loader’s lift and tilt functions.
A new operator presence/safety pedal regulates the loader’s auxiliary hydraulic flow for use with approved attachments. The pedal must be engaged when the operator is using an attachment with detent auxiliary hydraulic flow, such as trenching, snowblowing, digging holes with an auger or pushing/sweeping material with an angle broom.
A standard ride-on platform provides improved visibility to the attachment and easy access to the loader controls, and it improves overall operator comfort. It also increases productivity as travel speeds increase to 4 mph in the forward direction and 2.4 mph in reverse. Other comfort features include:
Customers can choose between two track widths to best match their application.
The MT85 can be ordered with a common industry interface (CII) or the Bob-Tach® attachment mounting system. New Bobcat attachments introduced with the CII include:
