Bobcat updates skid steer models in Europe

Bobcat has launched updated versions of its M-Series S630 and S650 skid steer loaders to the European market

Bobcat’s new Stage V versions of its M-Series S630 and S650 skid steer loaders have been released.

Featuring a radius lift path, the S630 model has a rated operating capacity of 1,012kg and a tipping load of 2,023kg.

Providing easy mobility in tight areas, Bobcat says the S630 has the reach and visibility needed for applications such as dumping materials over walls, backfilling or loading flatbed trucks.

The S650 skid steer features vertical lift path boom arms suited to lift and carry as well as material-handling applications, Bobcat says. The S650 also provides heavier rated operating capacity – at 1,227kg and a heavier tipping load at 2,455kg.

“Both models continue to offer excellent versatility through compatibility with a very wide range of Bobcat attachments,” Bobcat says.

Both skid steer models are powered by a Bobcat D24 engine that features a Bosch fuel injection system.

“With the engine situated transversally in the S630 and S650, these models have maintained their compact size, allowing the machines to operate and turn in the same small tight spaces,” Bobcat says.

New engine technology is provided in both models, which results in lower fuel consumption for the same type of work, it adds.

The base S630 and S650 models are equipped with a new control panel, which includes a keyless start function.

Bobcat customers will now have a wider selection in this size of machine, with a choice between the M-Series S630 and S650 models, and the R-Series S66 and S76 machines.
