Bobcat has introduced the T740, its Tier 4-compliant 700 frame-size compact track loader. The new machine is powered by a diesel engine that is under 75 horsepower and does not require a diesel particulate filter (DPF), selective catalytic reduction (SCR) or diesel exhaust fluid (DEF).
With the T740, Bobcat is specifically targeting professional landscapers, among other construction-related markets, with promises of improved power and performance, better visibility and superior operator comfort. The machine has a rated operating capacity of 3,200 pounds and an operating weight of 10,263 pounds.
The vertical-lift-path loaders are designed to lift loads higher so it’s easier to clear high-sided truck boxes and hoppers. Lift height to the hinge pin is 132 inches.
A 30.5-gpm high-flow hydraulic option gives operators of the loader greater attachment power. More than 60 Bobcat attachments are approved for use with the T740.
The non-DPF solution in the T740 features an ultra-low particulate combustion (ULPC) engine with a specifically designed engine combustion chamber that significantly reduces the amounts of particulate matter created during combustion.
Like all M-Series compact track loaders, the T740 features a cab-forward design that moves operators closer to the attachment and the work area. The machine provides unmatched visibility in all directions, according to Bobcat.
The company’s new loader also has the largest cab-door opening on the market, improving visibility to attachments, particularly to the cutting edge and corners of the bucket.
Standard controls with power assist are the base control configuration for the T740. Selectable joystick controls are available as an option.
