New skid-steer loader fits niche

If you’re looking for power, reach and capacity in a not-too-big machine, Bobcat’s new S205 skid-steer loader has a rated operating capacity of 2,050 pounds, placing it between the company’s S185 (1,850 pounds) and S220 (2,220 pounds). With its 118.2-inch reach and vertical lift path, the S205 can get in close to load tall trucks and place material over berms and walls. A 61-horsepower engine serves as the muscle behind the S205 and cranks out 16.3 gallons per minute of auxiliary hydraulic flow. A high-flow option bumps that up to 25.5 gpm.
