Bobcat’s newest skid-steer loader is the 74-horsepower S595, and its 2,200-pound rated operating capacity (ROC) is the highest of any of the 500-series loaders in the company’s lineup.
The vertical-lift-path S595 is able to lift loads higher, Bobcat says, making it easier to clear high-sided truck boxes and hoppers. Landscape contractors will appreciate the machine not only for its performance, the manufacturer says, but also for its compact size.
Two-speed travel is a standard feature on the S595 skid-steer loader, which has a top speed of 11 miles per hour. Operators can switch between travel speeds by pressing a button.
Bobcat says the machine was built for all-day comfort. The S595 has a pressurized cab with a one-piece seal that goes all the way around the door and fits into a special curved pocket. This minimizes the amount of dirt and dust that might enter the cab.
S595 skid-steer loaders come with standard controls, but Advanced Control System (ACS) and Selectable Joystick Controls (SJC) are available as options. Additional options include an enclosed cab with heat and air conditioning, radio, deluxe instrumentation and hydraulic bucket positioning.
The S595’s auxiliary hydraulic quick couplers are mounted directly to the front plate of the lift arm. A guard bar extends in the front of the quick coupler for added protection. Hoses are routed through the loader arms for better protection. Bobcat says simple checkpoints make it easier to perform routine maintenance.
Because the cab-forward design moves the operator closer to the attachment, visibility from the cab is clear in all directions. Operators can see the cutting edges of a bucket, according to Bobcat, and the larger top window makes it easier and more comfortable for the operator when performing tasks such as loading trucks or tall hoppers.
Sixty Bobcat attachments are approved for use with S595 skid-steer loaders. Owners can purchase the optional high-flow auxiliary hydraulics for improved attachment performance. Also available is the “Power Bob-Tach” attachment mounting system to change non-hydraulic attachments without leaving the cab.
