New Bobcat 500 Platform Compact Loaders

Bobcat has launched the new family of 500 platform compact loaders, which includes some of the company’s most popular models and "... is intended to cement Bobcat’s leadership of the skid-steer and compact tracked loader market worldwide" sayd Bobcat in their announcement.

In the Europe, Middle East and Africa region, the new 500 platform comprises six new generation models, the S510, S530, S550, S570 and S590 skid-steer loaders and the T590 compact tracked loader. There are some additional models restricted to the North American market only.

All of the 500 platform skid-steer loader models are manufactured at the Bobcat compact equipment plant in Dobris in the Czech Republic, while the T590 compact tracked loader is manufactured at the company’s main factory in Gwinner, North Dakota, USA.

The new 500 platform loaders replace the existing loaders and provide operators with increased performance, enhanced operator comfort and easier serviceability to maximise job site efficiency.

the new 500 platform machines offer a completely new design. Like the larger new generation 600, 700 and 800 platform models launched over the last two years, the new 500 platform machines offer a completely new design.

The new loaders continue the pattern set by the larger machines with major improvements in comfort, visibility, cab room, controllability and cab pressurization. With overall performance and cycle times up by around 16% on the previous models, the new platform loaders deliver higher efficiency and productivity levels.

The S510 and S550 models are radius lift path loaders giving manoeuvrability in tight areas with the reach and visibility needed for applications such as dumping materials over walls, backfilling or loading flatbed trucks
