For those always out for the biggest and the best, the massive Bobcat T870 track loader has been given an overhaul to make it even smoother, more powerful and more comfortable. As the highest-lifting loader on the market, the T870 can handle heavier loads than ever before, giving you access to bigger jobs and increased productivity with every lift cycle.
The Bobcat T870 offers unmatched power to help push through the toughest jobs. Industry leading breakout force, rated operating capacity, faster cycle times and quicker turns make it a powerful and productive machine to be reckoned with.
Torsion Suspension Undercarriage
Experience elevated levels of comfort with the new, industry-leading, 5-link torsion suspension undercarriage. As the industry's most advanced system, it reduces noise and vibration for a difference that can be felt throughout the entire machine. That means staying in the cab longer and getting more work done. And with unprecedented levels of durability, reduced maintenance requirements, and faster track clean out, operators will wonder how they ever got along without it.
Cab Design Enhances Comfort
When stepping inside the cab of a Bobcat loader, the attention given to operator comfort is visible. Premium features are included everywhere including cab pressurisation, sound dampening, ample headroom and legroom, and an adjustable suspension seat.
Time-tested, operator-friendly controls on the Bobcat loaders make it easier to work longer and perform precise work. The engine speed control is conveniently located in front of the operator. Fingertip controls simplify the operation of soil conditioners, sweepers, tillers, buckets, grapples and other attachments.
Automatic Ride Control Option
Automatic ride control reduces material spillage, allowing travel at faster speeds across rough terrain. Thanks to its dampening effect, the option also increases operator comfort by offering a smoother ride.
Bobcat compact loader operators can turn the automatic ride control option on or off from inside the cab. The ride control function is automatically activated by detecting increased hydraulic lift arm pressure when the loader is carrying material. It will deactivate when hydraulic lift arm pressure is reduced - such as when there is no load in a bucket. In addition, operators have the ability to turn it off for tasks such as back dragging.
