Bobcat reveals ‘most powerful’ compact loaders

By Steve Ducker21 September 2022

Bobcat has expanded its next generation R-Series range of products with the launch of the S86 and T86 compact loaders.

Launched alongside Bobcat’s TL25.50 Super Compact telehandler, they replace the previous 700 and 800 M-Series loaders and complete the current R-Series loader line-up.

“The S86 and T86 are also exceptional machines,” said Mike Vought, vice president product management at Doosan Bobcat EMEA.

“They are the most powerful compact loaders we have ever built, providing even more versatility as both tool carriers and workhorses.”

Both machines use a Stage V compliant 3.4-litre Bobcat engine – producing 78 kW (105 HP) at 2600 rpm. Just like all R-Series loaders, the engine is mounted in-line with direct drive, which is said to improve the cooling capacity of the engine and hydraulic components.

For the first time, both machines have a choice of three different auxiliary flow outputs.

There is a standard flow configuration providing 87 l/min for applications such as load and carry, or where low hydraulic flow attachments are used.

Bobcat also offers two additional hydraulic performance functions using the new Electronic Displacement Control (EDC) Pump: a High Flow function giving 138 l/min and a new Super Flow function taking auxiliary flow to 159 l/min.
