Boasting a rated operating capacity of 1,950 lbs. and an operating weight of 6,395 lbs. (2,900 kg), the S570 falls within the Bobcat loader family’s most popular size class.
The new Bobcat M-Series S570 skid steer loader provides operators with extensive feature upgrades, including increased visibility, a more comfortable cab and easier maintenance, according to the manufacturer.
Boasting a rated operating capacity of 1,950 lbs. and an operating weight of 6,395 lbs. (2,900 kg), the S570 falls within the Bobcat loader family’s most popular size class. The medium-size machine features a vertical lift path, allowing operators to lift heavier loads higher.
The skid steer loader’s newly improved cab-forward design places the operator closer to the attachment while providing a better vantage point in all directions. In addition to the loader’s enlarged cab door opening windows on the sides and rear of the cab increase visibility, creating a clearer view of the machine’s wheels or raised attachment.
Further, the cab door’s lowered threshold and increased size enable operators to enter and exit the loader with greater ease. Although the height of the cab has been increased, providing additional headroom, the overall size of the machine at 6 ft. 4 in. (1.9 m) is still small enough to fit through smaller doors.
Simple service checkpoints and superior design allow operators to spend minimal time performing routine maintenance before kicking off long, productive workdays. Areas that were once difficult to reach, such as the space between the oil cooler and the radiator, have been made more accessible for cleaning purposes.
The S570’s pressurized cab features a one-piece seal, situated within a curved pocket. This design helps minimize the amount of dirt and dust infiltrating the cab while saving crucial cleaning time. The skid steer model offers two speed options which boost the maximum travel speed from 7.4 mph in low range to 11 mph in high range, reducing the time it takes to cross a large job site. Reduced noise levels and the choice between standard hand/foot controls or selectable joystick controls help alleviate operator fatigue during long work hours.
