Bobcat has introduced a K-series to its lineup of skid-steers and rubber tracked loaders, making them quieter, stronger, cooler and more robust. A new hydraulically driven, variable-speed cooling fan runs only as fast as needed to cut down on noise. For 38 percent more chain strength, the drive chains were upgraded on the K-Series large-frame loaders. The large-frame machines with a vertical load path got an additional 2 inches to their lift height. And the K-Force hydraulic system was added to the medium-frame loaders, giving them an 8-percent increase in hydraulic breakout force, lift to full height and attachment torque. On the T180 through T300 track loaders an additional roller improves ride quality and track life.
