Skid Steers Built to Help You Accomplish More
Bobcat invented the world’s first skid steer loader more than 60 years ago and carries on a legacy of providing reliable, quality and capable compact equipment. Today, Bobcat continues to innovate and lead the industry with the recent launch of revolutionary new R-Series skid steer and compact track loaders — the most powerful, durable loaders Bobcat has ever built.
R-Series skid steer loaders are a revolution in both form and function. At first look, operators will notice the new lift arm design, featuring cast-steel sections which allow the loader arm to be stronger, yet slimmer. This design paired with optimized lift arm linkage enables R-Series loaders to offer increased lift capacity and lift height with the added benefit of enhanced visibility.
When you put an R-Series skid steer loader to work, you’ll feel the difference. The redesigned Bobcat inline engine and direct drive system offers more torque and a wider range of power than ever before. High performance is combined with an innovative new self-priming fuel system and enhanced cooling system to maximize uptime, keeping you on the job and out of the shop. Powerful breakout forces and fast cycle times allow you to dig, push, haul and lift with confidence.
It wouldn’t be a Bobcat loader if it wasn’t comfortable, and R-Series skid steers offer an unmatched operator experience in the one-piece sealed and pressurized cab, says the company. In addition to the precision of the available industry leading selectable joystick controls, another notable piece of in-cab technology is the R-Series standard 5-in. display which keeps operators in tune with the machine and attachments. An optional 7-in. work glove-friendly touchscreen display offers next level machine data and features including Bluetooth device connectivity with active noise canceling during phone calls.
Redesigned R-Series skid steers are a part of the unparalleled lineup of durable, reliable Bobcat tough compact loaders. Paired with a genuine Bobcat attachment, each skid steer loader model is a force to be reckoned with on your jobsite.
Advice to Buyers
“When spec’ing out a skid steer loader, first consider what attachments you plan to use most often,” says Sarah Peckskamp, loader marketing manager for Bobcat Co. “Having forethought around the hydraulic flow and pressure required to operate key attachments for your type of work will save you headache in the long run. And, don’t forget to think about your offseason. If you are deciding between two models, or even between standard flow or high flow, think about how much quicker you can complete a snow clearing job, for example, with extra size or hydraulic horsepower.”Tags: Bobcat, July August 2021 print issue, Spec Guide, Spec Guide 2021
