Tight Turning Radius
The Bobcat small articulated loader delivers precise maneuverability, thanks to its articulation joint that enables the rear tires of the loader to match the path of the front tires as they turn. This results in a highly nimble machine that navigates around obstacles with ease and works well in enclosed yards and small work zones.
Minimal Ground Disturbance
With its tight-turning articulated steering and light overall footprint, the Bobcat small articulated loader won’t cause cuts or tears in the turf when turning or hauling a load. This leads to fewer surface repairs after the job is complete.
Heavy Lifting Capacity. Small Package.
The Bobcat small articulated loader can lift and handle heavy loads. You’ll get excellent lifting capacity in a compact machine. It brings outstanding lifting performance to a wide range of jobsites.
Telescoping Lift Arm (L28)
The L28 features a telescoping lift arm that extends to a lift height of 104 inches, enabling customers to conveniently reach trailer dump height, backdrag, adjust attachment and more. It includes an innovative dual-cylinder design that keeps the load level as the bucket moves. The telescopic cylinder is synchronized with a hydraulic leveling link, providing leveling assist and preventing spillage over the back of the bucket.
High Tractive Effort
The Bobcat small articulated loader features series-connected drive motors that allow the machine to keep moving in rough or uneven terrain – even if one or more wheels are not touching the ground.
Automatic Traction Mode
When operating the small articulated loader, the machine automatically enables one of two traction modes, based on operation.
- High Traction: When the steering wheel is not turning, improved traction provides excellent control and mobility over rough or slippery terrain.
- Turf Safe: While actively steering, turf-safe mode keeps the wheels from scrubbing on the ground, causing the least possible ground disturbance.
Optional Traction Assist Switch
Similar to a differential lock, the traction assist switch enables customers to momentarily override the automatic modes, enabling all wheels to travel through adverse conditions such as mud or sidehill travel.
