Compact loader line

Limited release of new M3 skid-steer and track models offer exceptional value and performance as part of Bobcat’s expanding lineup of compact equipment.

Four new skid-steer and compact track loader models are now available by limited release in North America. The new M3-Series line was developed to support customers who are looking for more practical features with pricing to match, while complementing the R-Series lineup and maintaining the high standards of reliability, durability and performance established by Bobcat.

Bobcat M3 Series skid and compact track loaders
Limited release of new M3 skid-steer and track models offer exceptional value and performance as part of Bobcat’s expanding lineup of compact equipment.

Building on the established M2-Series loader, the new M3-Series is designed with the Bobcat turbo-charged diesel engine, an innovative new fuel system, simplified configurations and fewer ancillary options combined with new modern decal styling and more. The four new M3-Series 500 platform size model loaders include the S510 and S590 skid-steer loaders and the T550 and T595 compact track loaders. The S510 and T550 models feature a radius lift path to provide maximum reach truck bed height. The S590 and T595 models offer a vertical lift path for higher lift capacity and to achieve more reach at full lift height, keeping the load closer to the machine while the loader arms are raised.

Comfort cab and leading visibility
Carrying on the Bobcat reputation for high-ranking cab comfort, the M3-Series offers a roomy interior with a standard adjustable suspension seat and large entry to accommodate different sized operators. The cab forward design and optimal all-around visibility keeps operators more connected to the worksite. The enclosed cab machines feature a pressurized interior space to repel dust and debris and enhances the efficiency of optional heating and air conditioning.

Service and maintenance made easy
Bobcat loaders are designed to provide the fastest, easiest maintenance in the industry. Engine checkpoints are within close reach, as the large, swing-open tailgate provides convenient access to key maintenance points, and the tip-up cab brings accessibility to hydraulic and hydrostatic components.

Uptime protection
An innovative new fuel system in M3-Series loaders makes low fuel levels more forgiving. Cold-weather operation is improved and a variety of features, including a self-priming pump and a new fuel pre-filter, make maintenance and service more convenient. Additional standard uptime features include automatic machine shutdown, on-board diagnostics and battery run-down protection to monitor engine, hydraulic and battery functions. M3-Series loaders are designed for delivering better productivity where it counts,  keeping machines out of the shop and on the worksite.

Attachment versatility
The Bobcat Bob-Tach attachment mounting system comes standard with the M3-Series loaders, making it possible to quickly change attachments across Bobcat’s extensive offering of dozens of different compatible attachment products. The attachments are integrated with the electronics and hydraulic systems of Bobcat loaders, providing greater versatility to accomplish more with a single machine. Bobcat’s Power Bob-Tach system, with the ability to change non-hydraulic attachments without leaving the comfort of the cab, is available on select M3-Series loader models.

Additional standard features:

  • Fingertip controls to assist in the ease of operation of attachments easy to operate
