Bobcat has announced that three of its new machines will make their public debuts at World of Concrete 2016, scheduled for February 2-5, and has provided us with a few details on these new loaders in advance of their official debut.
We first got word of the T770 back in October when Bobcat announced engine updates for seven of its 700- and 800-frame-size loaders along with the T870, the company’s first 100-horsepower CTL. Now we have a few more details to go on before we see this loader in person in just a few months.
The brand new T770 compact track loader is a 92-horsepower machine running on a 3.4 liter, Bobcat branded, Tier 4 Final engine that uses Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) to reduce emissions and does not require the use of a maintenance-intensive diesel particulate filter (DPF).
To help owners and operators get comfortable with the new emissions technology Bobcat put a DEF level indicator on the display panel in the cab and an SCR error icon that illuminates when the diesel exhaust fluid comes down to 25 percent. DEF is used to reduce emissions and must be maintained to insure proper functioning of the engine.
The T770 offers a vertical load path ideally suited for heavy lifting, truck loading and digging applications. The machine has a lift height at the hinge pin of 11 feet, and an operating weight of 10,464 pounds. Hydraulics kick out 23 gallons per minute and an optional high flow option pushes that up to 36.6 gpm.
At World of Concrete the new loader will be paired with Bobcat’s new 3D grade control system, which we reported on earlier here.
Bobcat’s new S595 skid steer loader will also be on display. The 500-frame size machine has a 2,000 pound operating capacity and a vertical lift path.
The S595 comes with a number of M-series features and includes standard two-speed travel, a pressurized cab, easy access maintenance points, auxiliary quick couplers, a guard bar and simple hose routing.
If smaller is better for you, the Bobcat MT85 mini track loader lightfoots it across turf and other finished surfaces with just 850 pounds of capacity and an operating weight of 3,110 pounds. That translates to ground pressures of just 3.5 psi for the wide tracks and 4.9 psi for narrow tracks.
With its 25 horsepower engine the MT85 puts out 12-gpm auxiliary hydraulic flow and comes with either a 36 inch or 44 inch bucket. Additional features include dual ISO joystick controls, standard ride-on platform and an optional Bob-Tach attachment mounting system.
