A great performer for its size.
The Bobcat S450 skid-steer loader width makes it a great performer for its size – and the tight turning radius lets you handle big jobs in small areas.
Powered by a Tier 4 diesel engine, the Bobcat S450 skid-steer loader features a radius lift path for greater maximum reach at mid-range heights, like dumping over a wall, backfilling or unloading flatbed trucks.
Unmatched power to help you push through your toughest jobs. Benefit from industry-leading breakout force, rated operating capacities, faster cycle times and quicker turns.
Other features include:
Control in Your Hands: With Bobcat compact skid-steer loaders, you can feel and control the loader’s drive, engine torque and tractive effort—you can push your machine to the limit without an engine anti-stall system robbing you of power when you need it the most.
Faster Cycle Times: Hydraulic pumps in Bobcat loaders are matched to cylinder size and loader lift capacity to provide fast cycle times that help you get the job done faster.
Hydraulic Bucket Positioning: Optional hydraulic bucket positing keeps your bucket level when raising lift arms, reducing spillage and allowing you to work more efficiently.
More Torque: Bobcat loaders reach maximum torque at a lower RPM to minimize stalling and save time and fuel.
Powerful Breakout Forces: High-efficiency hydraulic pumps deliver more power, matched to demand and providing breakout forces.
Quick Couplers with Pressure Release: By simply pushing the coupler inward, the hydraulic oil is released through a return line back into the machine. The result is clean, quick attachment changes time after time.
Quicker Turning: Bobcat’s weight distribution has been designed for the best turning and skidding to deliver ideal performance, with 70% of distribution in the rear and 30% in the front. This quick turning reduces fuel consumption and power requirements from the engine, increasing the life of drive train and tires.
