Take the Heat and Come Back for More
Unforgiving worksites and obstacles are par for the course. Attack them without fear. We redesigned the lift-arm linkage so it’s away from stress areas and out of your line of sight. An extended steel guard protects couplers from damage. And hoses and fittings are rerouted behind the tilt bucket cylinders to improve visibility and offer better protection from debris.
The strength of cast steel was added to the Bob-Tach® attachment mounting system so you can do more aggressive attachment work. With fewer welds, this stronger, more durable connection stands up to daily abuse. All that and designed openings allow debris to pass through, so you’ll spend less time doing clean-out.
Harsh work conditions can punish tracks ... on other loaders. R-Series compact track loaders include an ultra-strong 5-Link torsion suspension system undercarriage. The rollers and idlers are made from cast steel and iron – not rubber – to maximize the life of your machine and minimize downtime.
You work hard; so should your loader. The well-thought-out design of the R-Series engine compartment allows for easy routine maintenance and better cooling, so you can push your loader to do more. The redesigned inline engine and durable direct drive system help increase the horsepower and airflow. Plus, the 50%-larger fan cools the higher-capacity radiator and oil cooler while rotating more slowly and quietly as it moves more air across the engine. Add the reversing fan option to quickly blow off debris that collects on the screen. Larger auxiliary hydraulic hoses – standard on high-flow models – are designed to further reduce operating temperatures. And in the back, heavy-duty steel louvers protect the engine while allowing maximum airflow for cooling. With enhanced cooling features of an R-Series loader, you can confidently run attachments for hours at a time.
Superior Operator Comfort
Stay focused on work
Even on noisy, chaotic jobsites, it’s quiet enough to hear yourself think inside the cab of an R-Series loader. The new one-piece, sealed and pressurized design isolates you from engine and hydraulic noise. Unlike other loaders, the door seals tight. It blocks out dust and debris and keeps the heating and cooling systems running more efficiently – which keeps you more comfortable. When it’s time to access key service and maintenance points, the entire one-piece tip-up cab lifts out of the way for quick access.
Best view on the jobsite
Seeing the work around you is critical on the worksite. From front to back and side to side, R-Series loaders give you the view you need – of attachments, materials and obstacles around you. The cab includes a large curved front glass panel for an expansive view from your seat. The cab-forward design gets you closer to the attachment to see the work in front of you. Look up and out of the large top window when raising a load above the cab. Or easily see down to the tires or tracks through extra-wide side windows – the redesigned lift arms with cast-steel sections offer a slimmer profile to enhance the view. Get a great view of the back through the rear window – the low tailgate sits below the window. R-Series loaders come rear camera-ready; add the optional rear camera to continuously monitor on-screen what’s behind you. The rear-camera seamlessly integrates into our display – no need for an additional panel taking up room in the cab. Ask about our clear-side enclosure that maximizes your view with a reduced-mesh design offering an unobstructed line of sight to the tires, tracks and bucket corners. Ultra-bright LED front and rear lights aren’t an extra: they come standard on R-Series machines for greater visibility when working in low-light conditions.
