Bobcat Australia announces the release of the all new Bobcat T870 Track Loader.

More Lifting Power, Higher Reach, Improved Hydraulic Flow


Unbeatable Performance and Efficiency:

It all adds up to greater on-the-job performance and productivity with the T870 Track Loader from Bobcat. This compact track loader is built for high performance, flotation and traction with its low-ground pressure, tracked undercarriage. The new T870 model delivers an incredible 3657mm of vertical lift, 90 L/pm standard hydraulic flow and 141.6 L/pm ‘high flow’ with 3450 psi hydraulic relief pressure, giving you the power and reach you need for the most demanding tasks. The T870 also features the latest Bobcat Comfort Cab improvements; including cab-forward design, better visibility, a cleaner, a quieter pressurized working environment, and optional radio and air suspension seat. Serviceability improvements include an easier-to-clean cooling system, more efficient hydraulics with an easy-to-read level indicator, and end-greased pins at vital locations. Uptime protection improvements include a redesigned rear bumper and integrated quick couplers to keep you rolling with minimum maintenance time.

Improved visibility, design and features:

The T870, like other M-Series loader models, features a unique cab-forward design that not only makes the loaders look different, but also moves the operator closer to the attachment and provides unmatched visibility in all directions. Superior 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. There is also more visibility to the front and rear tyres now.

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.

High Quality Cab Comfort for Endless Productivity:

Comfortable operators are more productive, so to create a better working environment, Bobcat increased the size of the M-series cab by 10 percent, redesigned the interior to allow operators to adjust the environment to their individual preferences and improved cab pressurization.

Bobcat M-series loaders have a best-in-class pressurized cab, with 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. The control levers on both standard controls with power assist, and the optional Selectable Joystick Controls (SJC) move up and down in conjunction with the seat to reduce arm movement and fatigue as the operator controls the machine. The joystick mounts slide forward or backward to adjust to the preference of each individual operator.
