Bobcat extends skid steer range
By Lindsay Gale17 July 2008
The new S330 skid steer from Bobcat is intended to meet the demand for greater lift capacity and increased power. The new machine weighs in at 4.2 tonnes and has a rated capacity of 1.5 tonnes. Power comes from a Stage 3A compliant Kubota V3800-DI-T-E3 four cylinder diesel delivering 62.5 kW (84 hp). The machine has a lift height of 3.3 m (10.8 ft) and a reach of 0.8 m (2.6 ft).
According to the company, the new machine’s power output results in increased pushing power and drive torque for digging applications. It also ensures optimum performance of high-flow attachments by providing more hydraulic horsepower. The S330 can therefore efficiently operate a high flow attachment at the same time as the loader is using its travel and auxiliary hydraulic functions.
Bobcat offers more than 40 attachments that can be used on the S330, the operation of which is enhanced by fingertip auxiliary hydraulic control, maximum/variable flow and forward/reverse detent. All of which are standard on the new machine.
