Overall Loader Performance Advantages

Bobcat® loaders will meet your high expectations for performance, every time you use them. The design, balance and weight distribution have been perfected to deliver more usable horsepower, powerful breakout forces and faster cycle times. With a Bobcat loader you can work quicker, lift more and outperform your competition.


Selectable Joystick Controls

It’s easy to see why Bobcat Selectable Joystick Controls (SJC) is becoming the most popular control choice among operators. Our low-effort joysticks are loaded with Bobcat-exclusive features and fingertip switches to help you control your loader and attachments more easily and comfortably. No other joystick in the industry even comes close to delivering the level of customisation and control you’ll find with SJC. We put the power in your hands!




Operator-Friendly Controls

You’ll find it easier to work for longer and perform precise work with the time-tested operator friendly controls on Bobcat® skid-steer loaders and compact track loaders. 1) The engine speed control is conveniently located in front of you. 2) The fingertip controls simplify the operation of Bobcat attachments such as soil conditioners, sweepers, tillers, buckets and grapples. 3) You can adjust the foot pedals to suit your preferences.


Seat Options and Adjustments

A comfortable seat helps you work better and feel less tired at the end of the day. Bobcat® skid-steer loaders and compact track loaders provide Selectable Joystick Controls(SJC) that move with the seat. You can make forward and backward seat adjustments as you wish, or try optional “air ride” suspension seats. Also, you can get a heated seat option, or choose from different seat cloths for your maximum comfort.




Panoramic Serviceability

No other loaders are as easy to access for maintenance and servicing as Bobcat® skid-steer loaders (SSL) and compact track loaders (CTL). You receive easy, full access to the engine checks and fills, filters and battery. Unlike other brands, you do not need to raise the lift arms to service the machine. So you can spend your time completing maintenance work, rather than struggling to gain access.


Grease Point Access

Bobcat makes maintenance simpler and faster with easy-to-access grease point locations on critical pivot points. So you don’t have to lie on the ground or stand on the wheels or tracks to grease the pins.


Transverse Engine and Belt Drive

Bobcat® loaders can be serviced from one side thanks to the exclusive belt-drive system. This durable technology with a multi-groove Kevlar™ belt allows your loader engine to run slower, which reduces noise and gives your machine longer durability. This optimised engine-to-pump package is also more efficient.


Uptime Protection


Choice of tires

Bobcat offers extended choice of factory installed tires, ensuring they can be more closely matched to your job right from the start.


Uptime Protection

The Bobcat reputation for reliable equipment and maximum uptime protects your own reputation for timely, productive work. These better-built loaders rely on a range of features that help minimise maintenance and protect your machine: machine shutdown protection, self-diagnostics, battery run-down protection, cold weather protection and other features. What’s more, Bobcat skid-steer loaders feature the industry’s only maintenance-free chaincase, which further reduces maintenance and gives you added peace of mind.


Maintenance-Free Chaincase

Another unique Bobcat advantage … the only maintenance-free chaincase on the market! With exclusive fixed axle tubes, stronger axles, and fully sealed bearings to maximise uptime and your peace of mind. The protected axle seals never need adjustments or greasing. Endless roller, high-strength oval chains (HSOC) are manufactured to very strict tolerances, with thick side-link plates and hardened pins. The chains are 38% stronger than other manufacturers’ chains.


Simple Machine Tie-Downs

You can secure your Bobcat skid-steer loader or compact track loader quickly, without having to search for hard-to-reach tie-downs. The tie-downs are easy to locate and use.


Keel-Shaped Undercarriage

Most other skid-steer loaders have flat bottoms. This means that when conditions turn wet and muddy, they can easily sink, spin and struggle. Bobcat® Skid-Steer Loaders are designed differently and they perform better in challenging conditions. The undercarriage is keel-shaped, with the lowest point at the centre of the machine, so the loader passes over most obstructions just like a boat slices through water. You’ll be able to work more effectively, even in difficult conditions.


Attachment Versatility


Power Bob-Tach

With the optional Power Bob-Tach™ mounting system, you can swap non-hydraulic attachments without even leaving your seat. Just press a dash switch – it engages the wedges into the attachment. The system locks the levers and keeps the attachment secure. This system is also the fastest method to connect hydraulic attachments to your loader because all you have to do is hook up the hoses after you have secured the attachment.



With the standard Bob-Tach® mounting system you can change an attachment on your loader in less than a minute. So you can easily use different attachments – bucket, auger, landscape rake, grapple and many others – throughout your day. Developed more than 35 years ago, the Bob-Tach system is time-tested.
