Loaders / Performance Features

Powerful Hydraulic Performance – Loaders

When it comes to performance, Bobcat® skid-steer loaders and compact track loaders are in a class by themselves. Each component – including the engine, pumps and hydraulic system – is engineered to deliver maximum hydraulic performance. For you, that means faster cycle times and better jobsite productivity.

Attachment Integration

T76 Compact Track Loader Clearing Brush With Loader Attachment

Smart hydraulics allow Bobcat machines to identify the attachment and lock out non-required functions (like high flow) to limit damage to attachment and machine.

Some attachments that perform best with high flow will automatically engage high flow in the loader whether the operator pushes the button or not. This ensures the operator is maximizing their performance.

High-Flow Hydraulics

R-Series Skid-Steer Loader Demoing Construction Site With Nitrogen Breaker

This optional system provides additional hydraulic power to boost production of attachments like the Bobcat flail cutter, trencher, planer and stump grinder. Machines with this option have two flow ranges so attachments that require lower flow can still be used by selecting standard flow mode.

Controls in Your Hands

Operator Using Controls Insights Compact Track Loader Cab

With Bobcat loaders, you can feel and control the loader’s drive, engine torque and tractive effort – so you can push your machine to the limit without an engine anti-stall system robbing you of power when you need it the most.

Powerful Breakout Forces

Compact Track Loader Moving Material With Grapple

High-efficiency hydraulic pumps deliver more power matched to demand and provide better breakout forces.

Faster Cycle Times

Skid-Steer Loader Grading With Loader Attachment

Hydraulic pumps in Bobcat loaders are matched to cylinder size and loader lift capacity to provide fast cycle times that help you get the job done faster.

Dual-Direction Bucket Positioning

Skid-Steer Loader Grading With Loader Attachment

Optional dual-direction bucket positioning 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.

Jobsite Applications


Compact Track Loader Moving Mud On Construction Jobsite

On construction jobsites, you’ll appreciate the benefits of hydraulic performance when digging into a pile, where you’re pushing, lifting and tilting, all at the same time.


Skid-Steer Loader Dumping Material

Whether you’re in dairy, beef, or crop production, hydraulic horsepower contributes to better performance when using multiple loader functions at once - like loading manure or feed.


Operator Using Compact Track Loader With Bucket Loader Attachment

On landscaping jobs, you’ll notice hydraulic horsepower when digging and lifting into heavy material in a pile, such as rock, sand, gravel, or soil.

Grounds Maintenance

You’ll appreciate the benefits of hydraulic performance when removing snow, where you’re pushing snow with a bucket, lifting and tilting it into a transport truck, all at the same time.
