NEW SKID STEER’S HERE Ranchers and beef cattle facility owners looking for more performance and productivity in a 74-horsepower skid-steer loader will be glad to know that Bobcat Company is now offering the new S595. The Bobcat® S595 skid-steer loader has the highest rated operating capacity (ROC) of any of the 500-series loaders in its lineup by boasting a 2,200- pound ROC. The vertical-liftpath S595 is able to lift loads higher, making it easier to clear high-sided truck boxes and hoppers. A standard feature for the S595 skid-steer loader is two-speed travel, with a top speed of 11 mph. The feature allows operators to choose between low and high travel speeds to match the jobsite conditions and tasks. Operators can switch between travel speeds with a simple press of a button. The S595 features a pressurized cab with a one-piece seal that goes all the way around the door, minimizing the amount of dirt and dust that might enter the cab. S595 skid-steer loaders come with standard controls. Advanced Control System (ACS) and Selectable Joystick Controls (SJC) are available as options. Additional options include an enclosed cab with heat and air conditioning, radio, deluxe instrumentation and hydraulic bucket positioning. The M-Series, cab-forward design moves operators closer to the attachment and delivers exceptional visibility in all directions. Operators can see the cutting edges of a bucket, for example, for more precise work and better overall productivity on their jobsites. The larger top window makes it easier and more comfortable for the operator when performing tasks like loading trucks or tall hoppers. Sixty genuine Bobcat attachments are approved for use with the S595 skid-steer loaders, making them a versatile machine on any jobsite. Owners can purchase the optional high-fl ow auxiliary hydraulics for improved attachment performance. Another option is the popular Power Bob-Tach™ attachment mounting system to change non-hydraulic attachments without even leaving the loader cab.
