The new T320 compact tracked loader from Bobcat, powered by a 67.6 kW Kubota V3800-DI-T turbo-charged, liquid-cooled diesel engine, has the highest power-to-weight ratio in its class, claims the company.

Bobcat has designed the T320 to meet a market demand for increased productivity (more engine power, more pushing force and more hydraulic power to give decreased cycle times) and an enhanced capability to run a wider range of attachments, including demanding high flow attachments.

The 4,401 kg (9,682 lb) T320 is a vertical lift path loader offering a rated operating capacity of 1,461 kg (3,214 lb), making it the largest compact tracked loader manufactured by Bobcat, and extending the range of compact tracked loaders currently available to five models.

The engine of the T320 offers 18% more power than that of the T300, the next smaller model in the Bobcat range. Coupled with the rugged rubber track system, the engine is designed to provide increased output for the toughest pushing, digging and grading applications. As well as extra traction and flotation for work in very wet ground conditions, the 450 mm wide rubber tracks on the T320 produce just 0.029 kPa (4.2 psi) of ground pressure, resulting in low ground disturbance, an important feature when working on turf and other sensitive surfaces.
