Bobcat T740 track loader

The Bobcat T740 is a Tier 4-compliant, 700 frame-size compact track loader. This machine joins the M-Series compact loader line and share features such as improved power and performance, better visibility and superior operator comfort. The vertical-lift-path loaders are designed to lift loads higher so it’s easier to clear high-sided truck boxes and hoppers.  The hydraulic systems on M-Series loaders have higher standard flow and pressure, for increased attachment performance. An optional 30.5-gpm high-flow hydraulic option gives T740 operators more attachment power. More than 60 genuine Bobcat attachments are approved for use with the T740. The T740 uses a diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC) to meet Tier 4 emission standards, but without the need for a DPF. The DOC is a special catalyst that reacts with engine exhaust upon contact and transforms combustion byproducts into water and carbon dioxide. The Tier 4-compliant Bobcat non-DPF solution 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 — making Tier 4 compliance possible without using a DPF. The T740 features a unique cab-forward design that moves operators closer to the attachment and the work area and visibility in all directions. The new loader has the largest cab door opening on the market. Large side and rear windows on the cab provide more visibility to the tires or tracks, as well as the back of the machine. The large top window makes it easier and more comfortable for the operator when performing tasks like loading trucks or tall hoppers. The pressurized cab includes 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 enters the cab, creating better working conditions plus it makes it easier to keep the cab clean. Standard controls with power assist are the base control configuration for the T740. Selectable Joystick Controls (SJC) are available as an option. Simple check points and superior loader design elements make it easier to perform maintenance at the proper intervals. Auxiliary quick couplers are mounted directly to the front plate of the lift arm to provide a solid mounting, and hoses are routed through the loader arms for better protection. A guard bar extends in the front of the coupler for added protection and to minimize downtime.
