The new Bobcat S595 74-horsepower skid-steer loader has the highest rated operating capacity (ROC) of any of the 500-series loaders at a  2,200-pound ROC. The vertical-lift-path S595 is able to lift loads higher, making it easier to clear high-sided truck boxes and hoppers. The S595 comes standard with two-speed travel, topping out at 11 mph. Operators can switch between travel speeds with a simple press of a button. The pressurized cab has  a one-piece seal that goes all the way around the door and fits into a special curved pocket, minimizing the amount of dirt and dust that might enter the cab. The S595 comes with standard controls. 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. Bobcat S595 loaders incorporate multiple design elements to minimize downtime: 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; Simple checkpoints make it easier to perform routine maintenance. The M-Series, cab-forward design moves operators closer to the attachment and delivers exceptional visibility in all directions. Operators can see the cutting edges of a bucket, for example.The larger top window makes it easier and more comfortable for the operator when performing tasks like loading trucks or tall hoppers. Sixty genuine Bobcat attachments are approved for use with S595 skid-steer loaders, making them a versatile machine on any jobsite. Owners can purchase the optional high-flow auxiliary hydraulics for improved attachment performance. Another option is the popular Power Bob-Tach™ attachment mounting system to change non-hydraulic attachments without even leaving the loader cab.
