The newest product offering is the 60-frame size loader models – and first radius-lift-path loaders – to the R-Series lineup: the Bobcat® R-Series T62 compact track loader and S62 skid-steer loader. (WEST FARGO, N.D. – October 2020) Bobcat Company invented the compact equipment industry, and with the launch of R-Series loaders, they reinvented it. As a leader in compact equipment, Bobcat is continuing to add innovative products to its lineup to meet customers’ changing needs. The newest product offering is the 60-frame size loader models – and first radius-lift-path loaders – to the R-Series lineup: the Bobcat® R-Series T62 compact track loader and S62 skid-steer loader. These new models join the current R-Series lineup, including: 70 frame-size loaders – T76 compact track loader and S76 skid-steer loader – as well as the four other 60-frame loaders – T64 and S64 loaders and the T66 and S66 loaders. The T62 compact track loader has a 68-horsepower engine and a 2,150-pound rated operating capacity. The S62 is equipped with 68-horsepower engine and 2,100-pound rated operating capacity. With a total focus on quality, R-Series loaders offer uncompromising reliability and durability, enhanced performance and unmatched operator experience. Redesigned Bobcat inline engine and durable direct-drive system The R-Series T62 and S62 models offer a redesigned 2.4-liter Tier 4 Bobcat engine. The new inline engine design and a durable direct-drive system ensures high performance in a compact machine profile. This redesigned Bobcat engine meets Tier 4 regulations without a diesel particulate filter (DPF), reducing downtime that occurs with DPF regeneration and long-term DPF maintenance costs. Bobcat engines feature a robust combustion chamber that handles more pressure and produces more usable horsepower and torque than ever before, meaning better performance for pushing, digging, lifting and operating attachments. Improved cooling system As operators require 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. Key R-Series cooling system improvements include a larger, higher-capacity radiator; fan size that has increased by approximately 50%, which achieves more cooling at a slower rotation; and a tailgate with heavy-duty steel louvers allowing for optimal airflow while still providing defense against jobsite debris. Increased lift capabilities From a heavy bucketful of material to a truck filled with hefty pallets, the ability to lift more and carry more provides a true measure of loader productivity. R-Series loaders are equipped with new, stronger cast-steel lift arm sections, and powerful hydraulics to improve lifting capabilities. The R-Series lift arms are stronger in key areas, yet offer a slimmer profile to ensure optimal performance and increased visibility. Visibility R-Series loaders bring more comfort to challenging jobs with their excellent visibility, comfortable controls, numerous options and roomy environment. The clear-side enclosure option reduces steel mesh screens from the side windows, giving operators a clear view to the sides of the machine to help maneuver more confidently. R-Series loaders come standard with front and rear LED lights for far-reaching visibility in low-light situations. Operators can also upgrade to optional premium LED lights that wrap around the cab’s upper corners or add side LED lights to illuminate even more of the jobsite. R-Series 60 and 70 frame-size loaders come rear-camera ready; the rear camera integrates seamlessly with the in-cab display to provide an on-demand, automatic or continuous rear view. One-piece, sealed and pressurized cab The new one-piece, sealed and pressurized cab design provides a near-seamless interior for a new level of operator comfort. The roomier design offers a sealed and pressurized environment that repels dust and dirt in the cab, isolates the operator from engine and hydraulic noise, and enhances the efficiency of heating and air conditioning. When it’s time for maintenance or repairs, the entire R-Series cab lifts out of the way to provide improved service access – with hardware on the cab exterior for easy removal. 5-Link torsion suspension undercarriage Available on all R-Series compact track loaders is the patented Bobcat 5-Link torsion suspension undercarriage option which dramatically reduces stress and vibration, making operation more comfortable. Cast-steel attachment mounting system A new cast-steel Bob-Tach® attachment mounting system provides a stronger connection point with more metal where it’s really needed. The cast-steel design requires fewer welds overall, plus features openings that allow dirt and debris to pass through. Additional features include: Industry-leading standard and optional displays (standard 5-inch display or optional 7-inch display with Bluetooth connectivity) offering full-featured machine interaction and monitoring capabilities Ergonomic, eye-level push-button controls Protected battery with remote jumpstart A new, larger fuel filter enabling better system protection and longer filter life Adjustment-free engine belts for quick, easy serviceability Standard keyless start and theft protection Quick Look: Bobcat R-Series T62 compact track loader Horsepower: 68-hp Bobcat turbo-charged diesel engine Rated operating capacity: 2,150 lb.
