The Bobcat® S650 delivers proven machine performance with practical features and pricing to match.
Bobcat engines meet Tier 4 regulations without a diesel particulate filter (DPF). This reduces downtime that occurs with DPF regeneration and minimizes long-term DPF maintenance costs. M3-Series loaders are designed to deliver more usable horsepower, so you can work quicker, lift more and outperform the competition.
Bobcat loaders deliver the right amount of power to each component. That directly translates to more power and balanced performance. 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 job-site productivity.
With Bobcat® Selectable Joystick Controls (SJC), available on most loader models, the power is in your hands. They're the most advanced joysticks on the market, engineered and built with technology and features to help you run your machine and attachments more efficiently than ever. No other joysticks in the industry come close to delivering this level of customization and control you'll find with SJC. Our system lets you control your loader and attachments easily and comfortably. They’re loaded with many Bobcat-exclusive features.
With Bobcat Standard Controls, operators control the drive functions with dual steering levers and manage the loader lift and tilt with dual foot pedals.
You won’t find a tougher track system on the market. Every component is engineered for lasting durability, including steel imbed tracks, forged steel idlers and solid-mounted drive motors and hydraulic hoses. The undercarriage system for Bobcat® loaders also delivers a better-quality ride and simple maintenance.
The 2-Speed travel option boosts your top travel speed. Reduce your travel time across jobsites, limit the need to load and unload your machine on a trailer and shorten your long-haul tasks.
With two lift path options, M3-Series loaders have you covered. Vertical-lift-path machines provide more reach at full lift height, while radius-lift-path models offer maximum reach at truck bed height.
All loaders that are equipped with Selectable Joystick Control (SJC) can be operated by a remote-control system, so you can operate the machine without an operator in the cab. The remote control is completely portable. If you have multiple machines, you can quickly remove the remote from one machine and attach it to another in minutes.
Control your Bobcat loader from outside the cab, using an app on your iOS smartphone. This system functions as an extra set of hands when help is limited, allowing two-person jobs to be handled by a single operator. It also enables operators to avoid repeated trips in and out of the cab.
Automatic ride control reduces material spillage, allowing you to travel at faster speeds across rough terrain. Thanks to its dampening effect, the option also increases operator comfort by offering a smoother ride.
Bobcat loaders feature the exclusive SmartFAN that only turns as fast as needed. The patented design cools more efficiently, while the radiator and hydraulic oil cooler are protected from jobsite hazards. Additionally, Bobcat offers an optional automatic reversing fan which clears debris from the radiator screen while you’re working in dirty environments.
Deluxe Instrumentation brings upgraded communication, monitoring, productivity and control to your Bobcat® skid-steer loader or compact track loader. It monitors key loader functions, communicates alerts and provides additional attachment information to track usage.
When not carrying a load, Bobcat skid-steer loaders deliver balanced, easy turning for ideal performance. Our skid-steer loaders offer effective turning and skidding; reduced fuel consumption and power requirements; increased drive train and tire life; and less wear and tear.
Jobsite hazards are everywhere and when your machine is out of operation for repairs, you lose time and money. With Bobcat skid-steer loaders and compact track loaders, you’re ready for nearly anything that you’ll encounter. Each component is designed for reliable protection. That means peace of mind, no matter the conditions of your jobsite.
Every skid-steer and compact track loader is engineered with multiple protection technologies. Working together, they shield your machine and minimize the risk of failure. For you, that means better reliability and the confidence to do your work.
Bobcat diesel engines are engineered to guard against the damaging effects of extremely cold weather. They prevent premature wear by automatically increasing the idle speed (rpm) to warm up oil and set a maximum operating speed (rpm) to prevent premature component wear or failure. Depending on the engine oil temperature, the protection may activate for several seconds to a few minutes.
The innovative fuel system includes a variety of features that make maintenance and service more convenient. The fuel pump enables a self-priming system that continuously forces air out of the low-pressure fuel system and back into the fuel tank, eliminating the need for a primer bulb. The low-pressure fuel system also incorporates a fuel pressure sensor to continuously monitor the low-pressure fuel circuit and notify the operator of a plugged fuel filter. This makes it easier onfor operators if the fuel tank runs empty or if changing the fuel filter.
Many brands will tout the ability to adjust their loaders' drive chains. These periodic adjustments cost you time, productivity and money. Bobcat has offered a better way for years with its skid-steer loaders: No adjustments. Bobcat welds its axle tubes to the loader chaincase. This, along with tight tolerance chain placement, eliminates the need for adjustments. So instead of spending time in the shop, you can spend time on the job with Bobcat skid-steer loaders.
The biggest advantage of our Tier 4 solution is simplicity. Bobcat engines meet Tier 4 regulations without a diesel particulate filter (DPF). This reduces downtime that occurs with DPF regeneration and long-term DPF maintenance costs. That allows operators to focus on working.
When you step in the cab of a Bobcat loader, you’ll immediately notice the attention given to operator comfort. A long list of features is included in the cab with a large entry for easy access and more interior space than competitors. Once inside, cab pressurization and an adjustable seat are just the beginning.
Bobcat skid-steer loader and compact track loader cabs are designed for all-around visibility. As you grade next to a building or load the machine on a trailer, you’ll gain optimal sight lines for easier operation. View the bucket corners from your seat and easily see the cutting edge. Your tracks or tires are visible without raising the loader arms. A large top window gives you visibility while dumping material into a high-sided truck.
Bobcat loaders with enclosed cabs feature a best-in-class, pressurizing front door seal that repels dust and keeps clean, heated or air-conditioned air inside, for maximum comfort.
Intuitive and adaptable controls on Bobcat skid-steer and compact track loaders make it easy for operators to be as productive as possible. Whether your job requires a fine touch working close to walls and obstacles or quick, responsive work group action and maneuverability, Bobcat gives you the ability to choose the best controls for the task. When paired with SJC controls, the engine speed can be controlled with the operator’s foot, while fingertip controls simplify the operation of soil conditioners, sweepers, tillers, buckets and other attachments. Foot pedals can also be adjusted to your preferences.
Smooth, quick Bobcat lift cylinders softly lower the lift arms back to their original position on the loader frame. This occurs automatically with every lift cycle to reduce noise and increase comfort during operation.
Adjustable seats on our skid-steer loaders and compact track loaders set the standard for comfort. No matter your height, it’s easy to find a comfortable operating position with multiple adjustment points.
If you work on a busy jobsite, you know that noise can be a daily frustration. Bobcat® loaders include many sound dampening features that keep your cab quieter.
Adjustable seats on our skid-steer loaders and compact track loaders set new standards for comfort. No matter your height, it’s easy to find a comfortable operating position with multiple adjustment points. With the optional air ride seat, you’ll experience maximum suspension comfort. It adjusts to your weight, helping you smooth out the bumps on your jobsite.
Bobcat skid-steer loaders and compact track loaders are engineered with large swing-open doors, and a lowered door threshold, which provide ample headroom for exit and entry. Inside, even tall operators will be comfortable with plenty of headroom. Additionally, the swing-open door doesn't take up cab space and can be removed without tools.
No other loader matches the serviceability of Bobcat skid-steer loaders and compact track loaders. Our large, swing-open tailgate provides convenient access to routine maintenance points. Unlike other brands, there are no radiators to move, lift arms to raise or lift-arm support devices to install in order to service the machine. Spend your time completing maintenance work rather than struggling to gain access.
Bobcat loaders offer one-sided serviceability thanks to the exclusive belt-drive system. This durable technology with a multi-groove Kevlar™ belt allows your loader engine to run slower for reduced noise and increased durability. It’s also more efficient with an optimized engine-to-pump package.
Maintenance is easier and faster with easy-to-access grease zerk locations on critical pivot points. With Bobcat compact loaders, there’s no need to lay on the ground or stand on tracks or tires to access grease points.
For non-routine service, simply remove two nuts and tip back the cab to access hydraulic and hydrostatic components in minutes.
Check your hydraulic oil level quickly and easily as you walk by your machine. Keep an eye on hydraulic oil levels and simplify your daily checks.
