Bobcat introduces Stage V compliant engines to its M-Series skid steer loaders.
Bobcat has launched new versions of its M-Series S450, S510 and S530 models, the first in the range to feature a specially developed Stage V compliant Bobcat engine. The new models have been designed to provide operators with increased performance, enhanced comfort and optimised maintenance.
Mike Vought, Senior Director, Product Management, commented: “M-series loaders are some of the best-selling models for Bobcat in Europe and the new Stage V machines build on the legacy set by their predecessors. Customers will benefit from the compact size coupled with the high torque and performance of the new engines. The Stage V engines also allow us to add the popular air conditioning and high flow hydraulics options to the 500 series models further increasing operator comfort and performance.”
The new Bobcat engine provides 37% more torque and fast recovery from overload compared to the previous machines. This raise the comfort levels of the operator as they can work with the same power at lower RPM, at lower noise levels and with lower fuel consumption for the same jobs.
The new Stage V loaders also feature the previously optional Deluxe control panel as standard, offering a choice of different languages and telematics to protect machines and to monitor their performance. Bobcat has also extended the choice of factory installed tyres for the three models, ensuring they can be more closely matched to customers’ applications right from the start.
The cab on the new loaders is radio ready with a 12 volt power outlet for charging mobile phones and other devices, a cup holder and storage compartments.
The S450, S510 and S530 skid-steer loaders can be supplied with a choice of over 50 different product families of approved attachments.
All three skid-steer loader models offer a two-speed option which boosts the maximum travel speed from 11.4 km/h in low range to 17.3 km/h in high range.
