Loader lifts its performance

GREATER lift capacity, lift height and reach are incorporated on the latest addition to Bobcats skid-steer loader range.

The 3.2t Bobcat 873, from Melroe, has a rated operating capacity of 1043kg (2300lb) and a tipping load of 2090kg (4608lb). Equipped with a low profile bucket, it has a reach of 104cm (42in) and a lift height of 316cm (126in) and is said to be capable of loading into high-sided lorries.

Power is supplied by a four-cylinder, oil-cooled 74hp Deutz unit, and the loader has a top speed of 8.5mph.

Price has yet to be announced but is not expected to be less than £21,500.
