One operator and a Bobcat® mini track loader can be a very productive combination in many jobsite applications. Among the attributes that make the machine so valuable are several standard built-in safety features. They include:
The function lockouts deactivate the lift and tilt functions when the engine is off. A manual lift arm bypass control allows the lift arms to be lowered when the engine is off.
Stepping off the continuous flow shutoff pedal disengages hydraulic flow to the attachment and stops any attachment motion. The pedal must be released to start the engine.
The engine will not start if the drive/steering control, lift arm control or the auxiliary hydraulic control lever are engaged.
