Bobcat is a pioneer of the compact equipment industry with a more than 60-year legacy of providing powerful, reliable and quality machines. Bobcat continues to innovate and lead the compact equipment industry with the recent launch of the revolutionary new R-Series skid steer and compact track loaders — the most powerful, durable loaders Bobcat has ever built.
R-Series compact track 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 compact track loader to work, you’ll feel the difference. The 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 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 and efficiency.
R-Series track loaders offer a nice operator experience in the standard one-piece sealed and pressurized cab plus the next-level ride comfort of Bobcat’s patented 5-Link torsion suspension undercarriage option, which dramatically reduces stress and vibration from the undercarriage. Additionally, other notable technology includes the precision benefits of selectable joystick controls as well as the R-Series standard 5-in. display, which keeps operators in tune with the machine and attachments. An optional 7-in. touchscreen display offers even more machine data and features. including Bluetooth device connectivity with active noise canceling during phone calls.
R-Series compact track loaders are a part of the unparalleled lineup of durable, reliable Bobcat tough compact loaders. Paired with a genuine Bobcat attachment, each compact track loader model is a force to be reckoned with on your jobsite.
Advice to Buyers
“When spec’ing out a compact track loader, operators should consider the advantages of opting for productivity-enhancing features,” says Mike Fitzgerald, marketing manager for Bobcat. “Think about the most frequent work challenges you deal with. For instance, do you often run a planer or a trencher attachment? Then learn how the benefits of speed management and steering drift compensation technology in our selectable joystick controls can maximize attachment performance. Or do you move materials day in and day out? Then consider opting for automatic ride control and dual direction bucket positioning.”
