The Bobcat MT100 mini track loader can travel and work where other machines can’t. A single operator can complete a variety of jobs in limited-access areas, reducing the need for manual labor. These mini but mighty machines easily travel through gates, doorways or other narrow spaces for jobsite access. Despite its small size, the MT100 does some serious work such as digging, trenching, tilling, moving material and more. Mini track loaders offer the attachment versatility of larger Bobcat compact track and skid steer loaders. The Bobcat MT100 offers two attachment interface choices.

Operators can 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 quick attachment changes and superior attachment fit. Demand for the MT100 has grown, in part, because the loader can operate select attachments approved for larger skid steer loaders, using the popular Bob-Tach attachment mounting system, to increase the machine’s 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. The Bobcat MT100 is just 36 in. wide when paired with a bucket, and its compact size makes the machine easy to load and transport on a trailer from jobsite to jobsite. This transportable quality allows you to save time and get to work where it matters.

The Bobcat MT100 has a powerful Tier 4-compliant diesel engine and efficient hydraulic system that delivers fast cycle times, strong breakout forces and excellent pushing capability. These attributes give you big machine performance in a small, agile package. 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 over a large area, 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, this machine can keep crews working when they might otherwise be waiting.

Attachment Advice

“Consider purchasing versus renting attachments for use with mini track loaders,” says Mike Fitzgerald, marketing manager for Bobcat. “Not only will various attachments have the versatility to work on both a mini track loader and 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.”
