The New Bobcat S650 Skid Steer Loader


Bobcat Australia announces the release of a new Bobcat S650 skid-steer loader With its vertical lift path, .55.41 kW, rated operating capacity 1220 kg , the S650 gives you increased lifting capacity and provides greater forward reach at full lift height for loading over dump trucks. Like all M-Series models, the S650 has an industry-leading cab design that offers improved visibility and operator-friendly features such as cab forward design with the optional pressurized cab, air ride seats and seat-mounted joysticks. The S650 has powerful hydraulics, top digging and pushing power, and increased fuel capacity. Stay productive with simple maintenance checks and simple design. To help you become even more productive, Bobcat offers more attachments for more carriers than anyone in the industry. Bobcat is the only major compact equipment company that manufactures a majority of its attachments.


The S650 features the following:


12-Volt Power Accessory: Your cab is your office. That’s why Bobcat installed a 12-volt power accessory for charging your mobile phone, MP3 player or other accessories.


Better Visibility: Visibility has been significantly increased in all directions. The rear window is 14% larger and the size of the top window is now 43% larger, providing a big advantage when loading a truck or using attachments with raised lift arms.


Cab-Forward Design: The new design moves the operator area closer to the attachment, and gives you a better vantage point for your work area.


Convenient Storage:  New storage bins are located throughout the machine. Store items wherever it’s convenient!


Cup Holders:  The cup holders hold cans & bottles all the way up to super-sized cups and coffee mugs.


Easy-Pull, Easy-Secure Side Window: Simply pull the new window knob to slide the side window to five lockable positions. The window stays exactly where you want it to get consistent air flow.


Fingertip Controls: Attachments are more comfortable to operate, controlled easily and adjusted simply from the fingertip controls.


Flexible Joystick Positioning: Joystick mounts on our SJC-equipped machines slide forward and backward independent of the seat, adjusting to the individual comfort positions of different-sized operators. As your suspension seat moves up and down, the joysticks move with the seat for added comfort while operating.


Foot Well Cleaning Access: Allows easier removal of mud and debris that enters the cab through two additional cleanout holes in the foot well.


Heat and Air Conditioning: Because our optional AC units are integrated into the machine, there is no bulky add-on unit to obstruct your visibility. Automotive-style vents allow you to point your air where you need it for great comfort in all weather conditions.


Large Entry/Exit: Bobcat re-engineered the largest cab front opening in the industry and now made it bigger! On machines with enclosed cabs, Bobcat provides a large swing open door to make it easier to enter and exit the cab. A lowered door threshold gives you increased visibility to your attachment and the surrounding work area – making it easier to see and do your work.


More Room: Our stronger, narrow loader arms make a wider cab possible, with up to 20% more interior space than competitors, keeping you comfortable.


Operator Switches: Puts important controls in front of you on the cab corner posts.


Pressurized Cab: Bobcat loaders with enclosed cabs have a best-in-class, pressurized interior space that helps keep dust to a minimum. A new, one-piece pressure seat engages the entire door on the front and sides, compressing the door seal into a specialized curved door pocket keeping dust and debris out of the cab.


Radio Capable: Order your loader with a stereo to increase you comfort. The radio features an auxiliary audio input jack that is ready for an mp3 player or other audio device.


Rear Defrost: Defrosts the new, larger rear window with new rear air ducts.


Seat-Mounted Joystick Control: Provides flexible control through seat-mounted joysticks on models with optional Selectable Joystick Controls (SJC); as the suspension seat shifts up and down, the joysticks move with the seat. Joystick mounts shift forward and backward, independent of the seat.


Suspension Seat: Other comfort items include an optional fully adjustable suspension seat, adjusting easily to the operator’s weight.
