Bobcat adds roller suspension system option to compact track loaders

Bobcat has improved the undercarriage of their line of large-frame compact track loaders with a roller suspension system option that increases operator comfort, but retains durability through the use of all-steel components.

Suspended by high-strength steel leaf springs, the permanently sealed and lubricated rollers reduce vibration. Raised track idlers make the units easier to turn, and drive motors and hydraulic lines are fixed and hidden to prevent contact with debris. The new roller suspension system is available as an option on the T250, T300 and T320 models.

The solid-mount undercarriages of the T250, T300 and T320 also feature new improvements. The area around the drive sprocket has been increased to allow efficient cleaning and clean-out holes have been added to the enclosed undercarriage to allow access for pressure washers. The design of the undercarriage frame prevents material from clogging the rollers in muddy conditions.
