Bobcat Launches Tier 4 Final Loaders

12/02/2013 @ 2:38pm

Bobcat releases its first Tier 4 Final loaders, including a non-diesel particulate filter (DPF) engine solution. The seven medium-sized machines make up the most popular size class and provide you with all of the same performance benefits of the previous Tier 4 interim models.

The Tier 4 non-DPF solution was achieved by designing an ultra-low particulate combustion (ULPC) engine. The ULPC is accomplished through an engine combustion chamber that significantly reduces the amounts of particulate matter created during combustion. Therefore, Tier 4 emissions compliance can be achieved without using a DPF.

The new engines used in 500 frame-size loaders will have a 4 to 12% increase in torque. This increase is produced over a wide range of engine rpm, allowing operators of all skill levels to better utilize the machine’s maximum performance.

The S510, S550, and T550 feature a radius lift path, providing you the reach and visibility required for dumping over a wall, backfilling, or loading flatbed trucks. The S530, S570, S590, and T590 feature a vertical lift path, providing the ability to lift heavier loads higher, making it easier to clear high-sided truck boxes and hoppers, as well as placing pallets.

The loaders feature a machine protection system that monitors, manages, and shuts down the engine if needed. This system monitors engine coolant and oil temperatures and will manage engine systems to reduce the potential of these fluids reaching a point where the machine has to be shut down. This minimizes potential damage to the engine, stops unnecessary engine wear, and keeps you working.

The hydraulic systems on M-Series loaders have been engineered for higher standard flow and pressure, which provides increased attachment performance. Engine horsepower and hydraulic flow are matched to the loader’s rated operating capacity, size, and weight. The optional deluxe instrumentation panel intelligently monitors key loader functions, including fuel consumption. The five-inch, full-color LCD screen offers better readability and operator interaction.
