(WEST FARGO, N.D. — February 8, 2011) The American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineering awarded Bobcat® M-Series S850 skid-steer loader and T870 compact track loader the coveted Agricultural Engineering 50 Award. The award was presented at ASABE’s annual meeting last month in Atlanta.
Bobcat’s M-Series skid-steer loaders and compact track loaders are versatile, compact tool carriers that deliver performance in smaller packages. With stronger hydraulics for improved attachment performance, better tractive effort for digging and pushing, improved ergonomics for operator comfort, and increased fuel capacity for long days, M-Series loaders are meant for intense work in a variety of agricultural, construction, landscaping, mining, recycling, and rental applications.
The machines include a unique cab-forward design that brings the operator closer to the work area, and they have a larger door for improved operator entry and exit. Other ergonomic improvements include larger windows and door for improved visibility, increased operator space, best-in-class pressurized cab, greater availability of seat adjustments, and improved engine mounting to reduce noise and vibration.
