Bobcat introduces the new MT55 mini track loader with rental customers in mind. The mini track loader has a 550-pound rated operating capacity — 35 percent of tipping capacity — giving it the highest-rated operating capacity in its size class. At 41.5 inches wide and 72.4 inches long, its compact size enables it to go where many skid-steer loaders cannot. The MT55 also features a turf-friendly lug track that distributes the operating weight of the 2,679-pound loader over a larger area, reducing ground pressure to 4.1 psi and minimizing damage to landscapes, paving stones, and other established surfaces. The MT55 has the ability to use many of the same attachments that fit on Bobcat loader backhoes, excavators and skid-steer loaders. The machine also has features built in for renter safety including a reverse-travel stop panel, parking brake, neutral start interlocks and a lift and lockout system.
