WEST FARGO, N.D. –Bobcat is expanding its product offering with the new Bobcat MT100 mini track loader.
Powered by a Tier 4 diesel engine and efficient hydraulic system, the MT100 has a rated operating capacity of 1,000 pounds and comes standard with removable counterweights, which can be mounted in the undercarriage or at the rear of the machine on the uprights, to increase lifting performance. Plus, the MT100 is equipped with a new, more durable undercarriage that requires no daily maintenance.
The new mini track loader is ideal for digging, trenching, backfilling and moving material in tight-fitting jobsites. This machine is a replacement for manual labor and wheelbarrows in tight areas where larger equipment won’t fit.
Two attachment interfaces
Make quick work of grading, backfilling, digging holes, hauling and loading materials with two attachment interfaces available on the new MT100. The new mini track loader features the Bob-Tach attachment mounting system which makes it simple to put an assortment of Bobcat attachments on the machine. The Bob-Tach system uses an over-center latch mechanism and wear-compensating pins to make proper attachment-to-carrier fitment a given from the first exchange to the last.
The MT100 also features Bobcat Common Industry Interface design which offers operators the ability to exchange attachments as jobs change. Combining over-center latches with pin-on design provides simple attachment-to-carrier connection.
The MT100 has a new undercarriage that requires no daily maintenance. The rollers are permanently sealed and constantly bathed in oil for permanent lubrication. The surfaces of rollers and idlers are heat treated to minimize the wear and tear of typical use.
The Bobcat MT100 allows operators to gain access to routine maintenance areas by lifting the hood. They can quickly check coolant, fuel, oil and hydraulic fluid levels.
Maximized ride comfort
The MT100 mini track loader features ergonomic ISO joystick controls and performance features, including optimized roller spacing on the track system. Plus, an integrated ride-on platform gives operators a wider view to the sides, as well as to the bucket cutting edge or attachment.
Two track options
The MT100 offers two different track sizes to provide operators with their preferred combination of performance and comfort when traveling over established surfaces or adverse ground conditions. The standard narrow tracks keep the machine’s width to just 36 inches. Depending on the size of the attachment, operators can easily slip through doorways and fence gates. A ground pressure of 5.25 psi provides good protection for most turf and finished surfaces.
Optional wide tracks further reduce ground pressure and increase machine stability. At 3.97 psi, operators can achieve the lightest possible footprint for sensitive surfaces – and the mini track loader is still only 41-inches wide when equipped with the wide track option.
