Bobcat Debuts Two New Loaders In M-Series Line

Bobcat's S750 skid-steer loader.

Two new machines join the Bobcat family of M-Series loaders – the S750 skid-steer loader and A770 all-wheel steer loader.

The S750 joins the Bobcat M-Series loader line, delivering 11 feet of vertical lift and features a 23-gallons-per-minute standard hydraulic flow. The skid-steer loader has an operating weight of 8,730 pounds, a rated operating capacity of 3,200 pounds and is powered by an 85-horsepower turbo-diesel engine.

Bobcat’s A770 offers both all-wheel steer and skid-steer drive options by simply pressing a switch and boasts a vertical lift path and 3,325 pounds rated operating capacity and a 6,650-pound tipping load. The design provides superior lift height (132 inches), reach (31.5 inches), and dump angle (42 degrees) for easy truck loading.

The A770 that replaces the A300 model meets the needs of users who require the low ground disturbance, reduced tire wear and faster travel speed of a small wheel loader, but also the maneuverability and versatility of a skid-steer.

It comes standard with two-speed transmission and a travel speed of 12.3 mph in high range and 7.1 mph in low range. The A770 is equipped with a 92-horsepower, liquid-cooled Tier 3 diesel engine and has an operating weight of 9,460 pounds.

The A770 has a turning circle diameter of 12.6 feet in AWS mode and 7.2 feet in skid-steer mode.

Both M-Series machines boast new features that were added to the optional deluxe instrumentation panel. The panel monitors key loader functions, and the keyless start helps prevent theft. The new 5-inch, full-color LCD screen offers better readability and interaction. Easy-to-read virtual sweep gauges allow the operator to quickly read and understand the machine’s performance.

The auxiliary hydraulic quick couplers are mounted directly to the front plate of the lift arm to provide a solid mounting, and hoses are routed through the loader arms for better protection. A guard bar extends in front of the coupler for added protection.

Keeping the loaders cool when working long hours is important in prolonging the service life of the machine. That is why Bobcat redesigned the cooling system on the M-Series for increased efficiency and higher performance. The new design also makes it easier to clean out the cooling system, with an oil cooler that swings up, allowing the operator to clean the area between the oil cooler and the radiator.
