Bobcat Company’s R-Series compact loaders include the Bobcat T76 compact track loader and the S76 skid-steer loader, and additional loaders will be introduced at a later date. The loaders are equipped with redesigned lift arms for increased lifting capability. New lift arms feature cast steel sections that provide greater strength while enabling a slimmer profile arm that also enhances visibility. 

They have a redesigned cooling system for optimal operation and maximum uptime. The fan size has been increased by approximately 50%, which achieves more cooling at a slower rotation.

The optional clear-side enclosure and mesh-free windows allows operators to easily see the sides of the machine and maneuver more confidently. Plus, R-Series loaders come standard with LED lights for far-reaching visibility in low-light situations. The new cab design is a one-piece, sealed and pressurized design that repels dust and dirt in the cab, helps isolate engine and hydraulic noise, and enhances the efficiency of optional heating and air conditioning. When it’s time for maintenance or repairs, the entire R-series cab rotates out of the way to provide improved service access — with hardware on the cab exterior for easy removal.

The new loaders feature an inline engine design and direct-drive system.

Other R-Series features include:

  • Camera-ready displays (standard 5-inch display or optional 7-inch display with Bluetooth)
  • Dual-direction bucket positioning
  • Eye-level push-button controls
  • On-demand, automatic rearview camera (standard with touch display, optional with standard display)
  • Optional automatic heat and air conditioning
  • Protected battery with remote jumpstart
  • Standard 5-inch LED display with keyless start and theft protection
