Bobcat 700-, 800-Frame-Size Loaders Now Tier 4-Compliant

Bobcat Company has transitioned its 700- and 800-frame-size loaders to a 3.4-liter Tier 4-compliant engine, delivering high-performing torque across a wide span of engine rpm, and lower engine noise for enhanced operator comfort. Because these engines don't require a diesel particulate filter (DPF), regeneration and routine filter cleanings aren't needed.

  • High-pressure common-rail (HPCR) fuel injection system
  • Cooled exhaust gas circulation
  • Diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC)
  • Selective catalytic reduction (SCR) system

SCR systems require diesel exhaust fluid, also known as DEF. A new DEF fill tank cap is located on the left side of Bobcat all-wheel steer, skid-steer and compact track loaders. The fill tank cap is blue and clearly labeled. All new 700- and 800-frame size loaders rated at 75-horsepower and above have an updated display panel inside the cab. The updates include a DEF level indicator to inform operators how much DEF is in the loader’s tank. An SCR error icon illuminates when the DEF tank is at 25 percent capacity. Audible alerts will also remind operators when DEF is getting low.

Horsepower ratings for Bobcat 700- and 800-frame-size loaders remain the same, with the exception of the T870, which increases to 100 horsepower — the first Bobcat compact track loader with 100 horsepower.
