Bobcat Company has transitioned to a 3.4-liter diesel engine for its 700 and 800 frame-size skid-steer loaders to achieve Tier 4 compliance.
Bobcat S750, S770 and S850 skid-steer loaders; T750, T770 and T870 compact track loaders, and A770 all-wheel steer loader are manufactured with a Tier 4-compliant, Bobcat 3.4-liter diesel engine. This engine does not require a diesel particulate filter (DPF), which would make a regeneration process and routine filter cleanings necessary.
Bobcat Company has taken the covers off its first Tier 4-compliant 700 frame-size loader – the S740. According to Bobcat, S740 is powered by an engine that is under 75 horsepower and doesn’t require a diesel particulate filter (DPF), selective catalytic reduction (SCR) or diesel exhaust fluid (DEF).
“The new Bobcat S740 skid-steer loader boasts the highest rated operating capacity in the under 75-horsepower skid-steer loader class, and provides customers with a large, powerful machine for working in construction, landscaping, agriculture, and buildings and grounds as well as other market segments,” Bobcat says in a release.
New Holland has announced a new warranty program for its light construction equipment – Super Guard.
“New Holland has a history for manufacturing quality construction equipment for over four decades and is known for our industry leading Super Boom design,” says Mark Hooper, senior director of marketing for New Holland in North America. “The best-in-class Super Guard warranty represents the confidence that New Holland has in its skid steers and compact track loaders.”
Bobcat has expanded its M-Series skid-steer loader lineup with the launch of the new S450, a loader that provides operators with improved comfort and performance – and is less than five-feet wide for working in tight jobsites.
With a spacious cab, a 20% increase in auxiliary hydraulic pressures and a non-diesel particulate filter (non-DPF) engine, the 49-horsepower S450 replaces the K-Series S130 skid-steer loader. By not requiring a DPF in the S450 engine, Bobcat says operators won’t spend time cleaning the filter, completing the regeneration process or replacing the filter.
