Bobcat S750 Skid-Steer Loader Makes Lifting, Loading More Efficient

The S750 joins the Bobcat M-Series loader line, which includes the S630, S650, S770 and S850 skid steer loaders, and the T630, T650, T750, T770 and T870 compact track loaders.

Bobcat’s S750 skid-steer loader can help contractors power their way to top performance in construction, landscaping, nurseries and other applications. Lifting and loading is easier and faster because the machine achieves maximum reach at full lift height, according to the manufacturer.

The S750 joins the Bobcat M-Series loader line, which includes the S630, S650, S770 and S850 skid steer loaders, and the T630, T650, T750, T770 and T870 compact track loaders.

The S750 delivers 11 ft. (3.3 m) of vertical lift — 3.5 in. (8.9 cm) higher than a S300 and features a 23-gal. (87 L) per-minute standard hydraulic flow — 11 percent more than the S300 it replaces.

The S750 has an operating weight of 8,730 lbs. (3,960 kg), a rated operating capacity of 3,200 lbs. (1,451 kg) and is powered by an 85-hp (63 kW) turbo-diesel engine.

Production Is Key to Profitability

The hydraulic systems on M-Series loaders have been engineered for higher standard flow and pressure that give attachments more power to work more quickly.

New job-enhancing features were added to the optional deluxe instrumentation panel. Available only on M-Series machines, the panel monitors key loader functions, and the keyless start helps prevent theft. The new 5-in., full-color LCD screen offers better readability and interaction. Easy-to-read virtual sweep gauges allow the operator to quickly read and understand the machine’s performance.

Increased Uptime

The loaders are designed to work long hours on demanding job sites, and operators want to spend minimal time on routine maintenance to start the workday earlier. Simple checks make it easier to perform maintenance correctly at the proper intervals, according to the manufacturer.

The auxiliary hydraulic quick couplers are mounted directly to the front plate of the lift arm to provide a solid mounting, and hoses are routed through the loader arms for better protection. A guard bar extends in front of the coupler for added protection.

Keeping the loader cool when working long hours is important in prolonging the service life of the machine. That is why Bobcat redesigned the cooling system on the M-Series for increased efficiency and higher performance. The new design also makes it easier to clean out the cooling system, with an oil cooler that swings up, allowing the operator to clean the area between the oil cooler and the radiator.

Improved Visibility

The S750, like other M-Series loader models, features a cab-forward design that moves the operator closer to the attachment and provides visibility in all directions.

Enhanced visibility is provided to the cutting edge of the bucket or the corners of an attachment because of the large cab door. The cab door threshold has been lowered and the overall surface of the door has increased more than 40 percent to provide improved visibility and make it easier for operators to enter and exit the cab.

Windows on the sides and rear of the cab also have been increased in size to provide more visibility to the tires and to the rear. The larger top window makes it easier and more comfortable for the operator to see the attachment with the lift arms raised, an advantage when loading trucks or performing other tasks.

Cab Comfort

Comfortable operators are more productive, so to create a better working environment, Bobcat increased the size of the M-series cab by 10 percent, improved cab pressurization and redesigned the interior to allow operators to adjust the environment to their individual preferences.

Bobcat M-Series loaders’ pressurized cab have a one-piece seal that goes all the way around the door and fits into a special curved pocket. This minimizes the amount of dirt and dust that might enter the cab.

Noise is another factor affecting operator comfort, and Bobcat reduced the sound level of M-Series loaders by more than 60 percent. New engine mounts improve isolation to decrease vibration and reduce sound levels.

The control levers on the optional Selectable Joystick Controls (SJC) move up and down in conjunction with the seat to reduce arm movement and fatigue as the operator controls the machine. The joystick mounts slide forward or backward to adjust to the preference of each individual operator.
