2017 Bobcat® S450
The Bobcat® S450’s width makes it a great performer for its size – and the tight turning radius lets you handle big jobs in small areas. Powered by a Tier 4 diesel engine, the S450 features a radius lift path for greater maximum reach at mid-range heights, like dumping over a wall, backfilling or unloading flatbed trucks
Features may include:
- Overall Loader Performance Advantages
Bobcat® loaders consistently meet your high expectations for performance. The design, balance and weight distribution deliver more usable horsepower, powerful breakout forces and faster cycle times. Work quicker, lift more and outperform your competition.
- Choice Controls
Which controls are best for you? Bobcat offers all of the common loader control patterns – and some allow you to choose between control styles with the flip of a switch. Choose from the popular Bobcat Standard Controls, the Advanced Control System (ACS) and the exclusive Selectable Joystick Controls (SJC). For harsh working environments, consider the Radio Remote Control System.
- Effective Weight Balance
When not carrying a load, Bobcat® skid-steer loaders offer a weight distribution of 70% in the rear and 30% in the front delivers balanced, easy turning for ideal performance. It offers effective turning and skidding, reduced fuel consumption and power requirements, increased drive train and tire life, and less wear and tear compared to “flat-footed” machines sold by other manufacturers.
- Selectable Joystick Control
It’s easy to see why Bobcat Selectable Joystick Controls (SJC) are becoming the most popular control choice among operators. No other joysticks in the industry comes close to delivering the level of customization and control you’ll find with SJC. Our system lets you control your loader and attachments easily and comfortably. These low-effort joysticks are loaded with Bobcat-exclusive features.
- Superior Lift Arms
With two lift path options, Bobcat skid-steer loaders have you covered. Vertical lift path machines provide more reach at full lift height, while radius lift path models offer maximum reach at truck bed height. The durable and patented single-plane design reduces side-to-side lift arm movement and minimizes load on the pins
The optional M-Series Deluxe Instrumentation Panel brings upgraded communication, monitoring, productivity and control to your Bobcat® skid-steer loader or compact track loader. It monitors key loader functions, communicates alerts and provides additional attachment information to track usage. Using the ultra-sharp LCD screen and simple interface, you’ll access data and helpful notifications to keep your loader operating at peak capacity with greater uptime.
- 2-Speed Travel
The 2-Speed travel option boosts your top travel speed by as much as 57 percent. Reduce your travel time across jobsites, limit the need to load and unload your machine on a trailer, and shorten your long-haul tasks.
- Tier 4
To reduce air pollution, new Tier 4 emissions standards require every equipment manufacturer to make equipment changes. Bobcat seized the opportunity to design a non-DPF Tier 4 solution that also delivers new features and provides more performance to customers. As Bobcat completes its Tier 4 compliance, every final Tier 4-compliant loader over 25 hp will feature the new Bobcat engine.
