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.

Everyone is different, so which controls are best for you? Bobcat offers you all the common loader control patterns – and some of them allow you to choose between control styles with the flip of a switch. Choose from the popular Bobcat Standard Controls or the exclusive Selectable Joystick Controls (SJC). 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!

The optional M-Series Deluxe Instrumentation Panel brings the latest advances in communication, monitoring, productivity and control to your Bobcat skid-steer loader or compact track loader. It monitors key loader functions, communicates alerts and provides additional attachment information to track usage. Using the ultra-sharp LCD screen and simple interface, you will be able to access data and helpful notifications to keep your loader operating at peak capacity with maximum uptime.

Advanced engineering and quality components on the 5-Link torsion suspension undercarriage work together to give you a better ride. Forged steel idlers guide and support the track. Solid, cast front rollers and idler mounts distribute stress across the entire system. An additional pivot point improves ride quality and absorbs jobsite stress and vibration. And a unique fifth link in the system acts like independent suspension.

Bobcat track systems are designed for simplicity and durability – and you won’t find a tougher track system on the market! The forged steel idlers and steel imbed tracks are built for the longest-possible service life with minimal maintenance. And to guarantee you more uptime, the solid-mounted drive motors and hydraulic hoses are better protected from debris, snags, vibrations, rubbing, mud and sticks.

Bobcat offers you a choice of undercarriages, to suit your work conditions and preferences. The standard Bobcat solid-mounted undercarriage is highly dependable in all soft conditions – such as mud, sand, manure, dirt soil – and protects your machine. The optional Roller Suspension™ system with all-steel components gives you added comfort without sacrificing durability.

When you operate a Bobcat Compact Track Loader with the Roller Suspension™ system you experience a new level of comfort. The undercarriage system’s smooth ride coupled with easier turning, less vibration and lower noise level helps you stay in the seat longer and get more work done. The all-steel components increase comfort without sacrificing durability. Rollers are suspended by high-strength steel leaf springs to reduce vibration and improve comfort, even in the harshest working conditions.

Raise the performance of your compact loader with Bobcat and EarthForce™ rubber tracks. These tracks are manufactured with a combination of natural and synthetic rubbers to maximise wear, so they can withstand even the toughest environments. By distributing the weight over a larger surface area, these tracks also give you a smoother, more comfortable ride without compromising your loader’s capabilities.

With Bobcat skid-steer loaders (SSL) and compact track loaders (CTL), you’re ready for almost anything that you could possibly encounter on the jobsite.

Quick couplers are mounted directly into the front plate of the lift arm. The solid-steel tailgate has no cooling holes or other openings for intrusions that could damage the machine.
