Skid-Steer Loader Increases Productivity for Grounds Managers - Bobcat Co. - Facility Management Product Release
For operators looking for more performance and productivity in a 74-horsepower skid-steer loader, Bobcat Company offers 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. This makes it ideal for those who need to lift and carry more material. Operators can move more material in a shorter amount of time and get more work done in the same amount of time for increased productivity.
Lift loads higher
The vertical-lift-path S595 is able to lift loads higher, making it easier to clear high-sided truck boxes and hoppers. Operators working in construction, landscaping and agriculture, as well as many other market segments, will appreciate this model because of its compact size and performance.
Standard: Two-speed travel
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 has a best-in-class pressurized cab with 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, creating more enjoyable working conditions for the operator.
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.
Bobcat S595 loaders incorporate multiple design elements to help protect the owner’s investment and minimize downtime.
- Auxiliary hydraulic quick couplers are mounted directly to the front plate of the lift arm
- A guard bar extends in the front of the quick coupler for added protection
- Hoses are routed through the loader arms for better protection
- Simple checkpoints make it easier to perform routine maintenance
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 S595 skid-steer loaders, making them a versatile machine on any jobsite. Owners can purchase the optional high-flow 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.
