Highest lifting skid-steer loader.
The Bobcat S850 Skid-Steer loader is the biggest in its lineup. The new loader’s packed with power and performance, and is the highest lifting skid-steer loader on the market with a 3.65m (12 ft) lift height.
With increased uptime, the S850 is designed to work long hours and more efficiently on tough terrain and jobsites, allowing the operator to spend minimal time on routine maintenance.
The new design features a unique cab-forward style that gives the operator a clear view of the attachment and provides visibility in all directions while working.
With the 10 percent increase in cab size, operators will be able to work in comfort. Noise levels are reduced by 60 percent due to new engine mounts that decreases vibration and noise levels.
New job-enhancing features have been added to the optional Deluxe Instrumentation Panel. The new panel intelligently monitors key loader functions, display and monitor certain attachment functions and the keyless start helps prevent theft.
Other features include:
Powerful Breakout Forces: High-efficiency hydraulic pumps deliver more power, matched to demand and provides high breakout forces.
Power Bob-Tach™ Powered Mounting System: Change non-hydraulic attachments from the comfort of your cab. With the flip of a switch, you can swap a bucket with pallet forks without ever leaving your seat with the optional Power Bob-Tach™ mounting system.
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.
Remote Control: All loaders equipped with Selectable Joystick Control or All Wheel Steer can be operated by the optional Radio Remote Control. Bobcat Company is the first and only company to introduce a new way to operate your equipment without having to have an operator in the cab. This is a smart solution for hot, dusty environments or on jobs where you’d rather be outside of the machine.
