4 REASONS WHY CAT COMPACT TRACK LOADERS ARE BETTER THAN BOBCAT TRACK LOADERS

If you are considering purchasing a compact track loader, make yourself knowledgeable about your options. Here is a competitive overview of the CAT® Compact Track Loaders versus Bobcat Track Loaders.

WE HAVE

1.  All Cat units have track frames that are independently mounted to the main frame, via a Torsion Axle suspension

2.  Open Undercarriage

3.  10% Longer Track on Ground

4.  Two-Speed Drive System is standard on all models

THEY HAVE

No suspension systems as standard equipment – “Roller Suspension” System (Bobcat) is a premium option.

Enclosed Undercarriage

Unproven suspension system

Bobcat offers only One‑Speed

CAT ADVANTAGE - TORSION AXLE SUSPENSION

  • Provides excellent bucket load retention at high speed.
  • In a load and carry operation, the Cat can retain its load while traveling three times faster than any competitor
  • Cat suspension allows undercarriage movement in up/down direction.
  •  Bobcat suspension allows ONLY roller movement in up/down direction. The idlers are not suspended, resulting in a rough ride.
  •  Cat torsion axles mounted within machine frame – material packing does not hamper effectiveness.
  •  Bobcat leaf springs offer limited suspension travel and could be prone to material packing - reducing effectiveness. 
  • ALL other CTL manufacturers offer ONLY rigidly mounted undercarriage.

CAT ADVANTAGE - OPEN UNDERCARRIAGE

  • Less prone to material buildup
  • Easy to clean out and to service

CAT ADVANTAGE - 10% LONGER TRACK ON GROUND

  • Longer track (69.9 inches) provides higher flotation, traction, lower ground pressure and longer track life.
  • Longer track means more stability and better fine grading capability.

CAT ADVANTAGE - TWO SPEED DRIVE SYSTEM IS STANDARD

  • Cat is 22% faster than Bobcat. Without suspension this advantage would be unusable.
  • Get more done in less time!
