Bobcat used the ConExpo exhibition to extend it popular M-Series, “next generation” line with the new 700-platform machines — the S750 and S770 skid-steer loaders, the A770 all-wheel steer loader, and the T750 and T770 compact track loaders.

The T770 is powered by a 68.6 kW Kubota diesel engine that delivers a significant increase in power, hydraulic performance and productivity. With an operating weight of 4,683kg, the T770 has a rated operating capacity of 1,611 kg and a tipping load of 4,602kg.

As a further nod to performance, Bobcat has increased the hydraulic flow on the T770 to 87.1 litres/min. That hydraulic power is further optimised by ensuring that peak flow occurs close to the rated engine load, providing better fuel efficiency and engine cooling. Together, these improvements result in faster cycle times, with Bobcat claiming 18 percent faster dump/rollback cycle.
