Bobcat Debuts Two New Loaders In M-Series Line
A unique cab-forward design on both models moves the operator closer to the attachment and provides unmatched visibility in all directions. Visibility is provided to the cutting edge of the bucket or the corners of an attachment because the cab door is the largest available on the market. The cab door threshold has been lowered and the overall surface of the door has increased more than 40 percent to provide improved visibility and make it easier for operators to enter and exit the cab. Windows on the sides and rear of the cab are larger to provide more visibility to the tires and to the rear. The larger top window makes it easier and more comfortable for the operator to see the attachment with the lift arms raised, an advantage when loading trucks or performing other tasks.
Bobcat M-Series loaders have a new one-piece seal that goes all the way around the door and fits into a special curved pocket. This minimizes the amount of dirt and dust that might enter the cab, creating more enjoyable working conditions and making it easier to clean the cab.
Noise is another factor affecting operator comfort, and Bobcat reduced the sound level of M-Series loaders by more than 60 percent. New engine mounts improve isolation to decrease vibration and reduce sound levels. www.bobcat.com
