Bobcat's R-Series kept a lot of features from the previous M-Series while adding new features including standard keyless start, new display panels and dual direction bucket positions.
The first two units have been released, the S76 skid steer and T76 compact track loader.
R-Series loaders have been designed to be tougher with Bobcat lift arms featuring cast steel construction for increased material strength and rigidity. The R-Series cooling system is completely redesigned for optimal operation and maximum uptime.
The newly optimized geometry of the R-Series workgroup improves lift capacity throughout the loader’s range of motion.
Optional clear-side enclosure and mesh-free windows allow operators to easily see to the sides of the machine and maneuver confidently. Plus, R-Series loaders come standard with LED lights for far-reaching visibility in low-light situations.
A 5-Link torsion suspension undercarriage is an option available on the compact track loaders that is said to dramatically reduce stress and vibration from the undercarriage, making operation more comfortable.
