    R-Series Skid-Steer Loaders

    R-Series skid-steer loaders bring overall performance to new heights and are built to tackle the rigors of bigger, more difficult jobs. They also include a long list of comfort features that help operators spend more time in their machines to maximize productivity.

    The most capable loaders we’ve ever built for any jobsite, anywhere

    Powerful R-Series skid-steer loaders are unlike any loader Bobcat has ever built. They are loaded with enhanced features to help you take on the toughest work and spend less time doing it. Choose R-Series for increased lifting capabilities, a redesigned Bobcat inline engine with direct-drive system and an optional Touch Display. It’s the revolution your work demands.

    Powerful Hydraulics​

    Bobcat loaders are in a class by themselves. Each component – including the engine, pumps and hydraulic system – is engineered to deliver maximum hydraulic performance so you can work quicker, lift more and outperform your competition.

    Selectable Joystick Control

    No other joystick in the industry comes close to delivering the level of customization and control you’ll find with SJC. It gives you all the capabilities of standard controls, along with four additional functions that propel your productivity with better control of your loader and attachments.

    Increased Lifting Capabilities

    R-Series loaders deliver increased lifting capabilities. The cast-steel lift arm sections are stronger to ensure optimal performance so you can handle more challenging jobs with greater confidence and ease.

    Redesigned Bobcat Engine

    R-Series loaders feature a Bobcat engine that delivers the performance you need while reducing and simplifying routine maintenance. With the innovative new fuel system, low fuel levels are more forgiving for busy operators.

    Premium Comfort

    Bobcat loaders offer a variety of comfort features including roomy cabs, heated air-ride seats, optional automatic heat and air conditioning, ergonomic controls, innovative instrumentation and more to keep you productive.

    Touch Display

    The most advanced in-cab display, optional on R-Series loaders, delivers detailed machine information to make operation efficient and productive. An integrated radio offers Bluetooth™ connectivity. It includes a durable, waterproof touchscreen.

    Improved Cooling System

    The redesigned cooling system on R-Series loaders delivers optimal operation and maximum uptime. The system includes an optional reversible fan, heavy-duty steel louvered tailgate, larger hydraulic hoses and tubelines, increased fan size and high capacity radiator.

    Bob-Tach Attachment Systems

    Change attachments quickly using the standard Bob-Tach® mounting system included with every loader. R-Series models include a stronger connection point and less debris buildup. Or upgrade to the optional Power Bob-Tach system for swapping non-hydraulic attachments without leaving your seat.

    Effective Weight Balance

    Bobcat skid-steer loaders offer effective turning and skidding, reduced fuel consumption and power requirements, increased drive train and tire life, and less wear and tear compared to “flat-footed” machines sold by other manufacturers.

    Bobcat Features On Demand

    With Bobcat Features On Demand, you have the flexibility to quickly and easily enable features on your R-Series skid-steer loader after purchase, as your needs change. With this exclusive technology from Bobcat, you can select the Features On Demand you want at the time of purchase – including Two-Speed travel, high-flow hydraulics, automatic ride control, reversing fan and dual-direction bucket positioning. Then, if your work needs change in the future, simply contact your dealer to “turn on” additional features.
