Bobcat has introduced
its new generation of compact loaders including the T770, which was launched at the show.
The new T770 compact
tracked loader provides a significant increase in power, hydraulic performance
and productivity. It is powered by the Kubota
V3800-DI-T-E3 Stage IIIA diesel engine and has a rated operating capacity of 1.78UStons
(1.61tonnes) and a tipping load of 5.1US tons (4.6tonnes). Operating weight of
the T770 is 5.1US tons (4,683kg).
The standard hydraulic
flow on the T770 has been increased by more than 30% to provide significantly
better attachment performance. High-flow hydraulic power has been optimized by
ensuring that peak flow occurs close to the rated engine load, providing better
fuel efficiency and engine cooling. The higher hydraulic performance also
results in faster cycle times with an 18% faster dump/rollback cycle, according
The standard maximum
travel speed of the T770 is 6.6mph (10.6km/h), but this can be increased to 10.7mph
(17.2km/h) using an optional two-speed system. Traction has been increased by
15% to 20% to provide greater pushing and digging power while a larger fuel
tank allows for longer work intervals between refueling.
A prominent upgrade is
a new design of cab to provide more space, less noise and improved ergonomics
for greater operator comfort, higher productivity and better protection.
Visibility has been improved thanks to the cab’s new forward position.
The T770 was put on display
next to the recently launched S630 and S850 skid-steer loaders and the T650 and
T870 compact tracked loaders; all members of the new generation compact loader
line. Joining the new compact loaders at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2011 has been Bobcat’s
new generation of mini-excavators, as part of a display that also includes telehandlers,
utility vehicles and attachments.
