Bobcat Company has introduced the 500 frame-size skid-steer loader and compact track loaders. The seven additions to the Bobcat loader family provide operators with extensive upgrades including better visibility, a more comfortable cab and easier serviceability. The S510 and S550 skid-steer loaders and the T550 series track loader feature an extended radius lift path, providing operators the reach and visibility they need for dumping over a wall, backfiling or loading flatbed trucks. The S530, S570, S590 and T590 models feature a vertical lift path, offering operators the ability to lift heavier loads, which simplifies clearing high-sided truck boxes and hoppers, and placing pallets with heavy material. The M series vertical-lift-path machines feature an increased lift height over the equivalent K Series models. The 500 frame-size loaders feature a unique cab-forward design that positions the operator closer to the attachment and provides superior visibility. Cab size is increased by 10% to make the space roomier, and the cab has been pressurized with a new one-piece seal that restricts dirt and dust. Windows on the new models are larger to improve visibility. Simple check points and superior design make it easier to perform maintenance correctly at the proper intervals.
