Mini Track Loaders Made To Do Serious Work in Tight Spaces
Bobcat mini track loaders travel to and work where other machines can’t. A single operator can complete a variety of jobs in limited-access areas, reducing the need for wheelbarrows and shovels. Easily travel through gates, doorways or other narrow spaces with your choice of a walk-behind or ride-on style mini track loader.
Mini track loaders, sometimes known as mini skid steers, offer the attachment versatility of larger Bobcat compact track and skid steer loaders. Bobcat mini track loaders — the MT55 or MT000 — offer two attachment interface choices. Choose between the Common Industry Interface (CII) or the exclusive Bob-Tach attachment mounting system. The Common Industry Interface design allows you to pair your machine with many mini track loader attachments you may already own or choose to rent, while the time-tested Bob-Tach attachment mounting system delivers rapid attachment changes and superior attachment fit. Bobcat mini track loader popularity grew, in part, because the loaders could operate select attachments approved for larger skid steer loaders, using the popular Bob-Tach attachment mounting system, to increase their versatility and improve operator productivity.
One of the most obvious benefits of mini track loaders is their ability to travel through tight spaces, such as doorways and fence gates, and work in confined spaces in landscaping, construction and agriculture applications. Bobcat mini track loaders are just 36 in. wide when paired with a bucket, and their compact size makes them easy to load and transport on a trailer from jobsite to jobsite.
What can we say? We love rental. So much so that we published a Digital Rental Guide covering everything you need to know when renting a machine. Check it out here!
Bobcat mini track loaders have powerful Tier 4-compliant diesel engines and efficient hydraulic systems to deliver fast cycle times, strong breakout forces and excellent pushing abilities. The machine’s frame, lift arms and hydrostatic drive system are designed for a long, dependable service life. Popular attachments for mini track loaders include buckets, pallet forks, augers, trenchers, stump grinders and hydraulic breakers.
A rubber-track undercarriage distributes the loader’s weight, reducing ground pressure and minimizing damage to lawns and other established surfaces. Less ground disturbance means fewer repairs, happier customers and improved profitability. With solid traction in wet, muddy and sandy conditions, the machines can keep crews working when they might otherwise be waiting.
Advice to Buyers
“Consider purchasing versus renting attachments for use with mini track loaders,” says Sarah Peckskamp, loader marketing manager for Bobcat Co. “Not only will various attachments have the versatility to work on both a mini track loader and also on select larger compact loaders, but an attachment will pay for itself after only a few projects because of increased productivity and time saved versus doing the work by hand.”
