The Bobcat® S450's width makes it a great performer for its size – and the tight turning radius lets you handle big jobs in small areas. Powered by a Tier 4 diesel engine, the S450 features a radius lift path for greater maximum reach at mid-range heights, like dumping over a wall, backfilling or unloading flatbed trucks.


Features

  • Bobcat® skid-steer loader and compact track loader cabs are designed for all-around visibility. As you grade next to a building or load the machine on a trailer, you’ll gain better sight lines for easier operation. View the bucket corners from your seat and easily see the cutting edge. Your tracks or tires are visible without raising the loader arms. A large top window gives you visibility while dumping material into a high-sided truck.

  • Jobsite hazards are everywhere and when your machine is out of operation for repairs, you lose valuable work time and money. With Bobcat® skid-steer loaders and compact track loaders, you’re ready for nearly anything that you’ll encounter. Each component is designed for reliable protection. For you, that means peace of mind, no matter the conditions of your jobsite.

  • Bobcat Selectable Joystick Controls (SJC) are becoming the most popular control choice among operators. No other joysticks in the industry comes close to delivering the level of customization and control you'll find with SJC. Our system lets you control your loader and attachments easily and comfortably. They’re loaded with many Bobcat-exclusive features.

  • When not carrying a load, Bobcat® skid-steer loaders offer a weight distribution of 70 percent in the rear and 30 percent in the front delivers balanced, easy turning for ideal performance. It offers effective turning and skidding, reduced fuel consumption and power requirements, increased drive train and tire life, and less wear and tear compared to “flat-footed” machines sold by other manufacturers.

  • Maintenance is easier and faster with easy-to-access grease zerk locations on critical pivot points. Avoid laying on the ground or standing on tracks to grease the pins.

  • If you work on a busy jobsite, you know that noise can be a daily frustration. Bobcat® loaders include many sound dampening features that keep your cab quieter.

  • Cooling on Bobcat® loaders features the exclusive SmartFAN that only turns as fast as needed. The patented design cools more efficiently, while the radiator and hydraulic oil cooler are protected from jobsite hazards. Additionally, Bobcat offers an optional automatic reversing fan which clears debris from the radiator screen while you’re working in dirty environments.

  • Bobcat reputation for reliable equipment protects your reputation for timely, productive work. Every skid-steer and compact track loader is engineered with multiple protection technologies. Working together, they protect your machine and decrease the risk of failure. For you, that means better reliability and the confidence to do you work.

  • Quickly secure your skid-steer loader or compact track loader without searching for hard-to-reach tie-downs. The tie-downs are easy to locate and use.

  • The 2-Speed travel option boosts your top travel speed. Reduce your travel time across jobsites, limit the need to load and unload your machine on a trailer, and shorten your long-haul tasks.

  • Most other skid-steer loaders have flat bottoms. When conditions turn wet and muddy, they can easily sink, spin and struggle. With the industry-exclusive keel-shaped undercarriage, Bobcat® skid-steer loaders perform better and reduce your chances of getting stuck.

  • Automatic ride control reduces material spillage, allowing you to travel at faster speeds across rough terrain. Thanks to its dampening effect, the option also increases operator comfort by offering a smoother ride.

  • Time-tested controls on Bobcat® skid-steer loaders and compact track loaders make it easier to work longer and perform precise work. The engine speed control is conveniently located in front of you. Fingertip controls simplify the operation of soil conditioners, sweepers, tillers, buckets, grapples and other attachments. Foot pedals can be adjusted to your preferences.

  • When you step in the cab of a Bobcat® loader, you’ll immediately notice the attention given to operator comfort. Premium features are included everywhere you look. Cab pressurization, sound dampening, ample headroom and legroom, and an adjustable suspension seat are just the beginning.

  • Deluxe Instrumentation brings upgraded communication, monitoring, productivity and control to your Bobcat® skid-steer loader or compact track loader. It monitors key loader functions, communicates alerts and provides additional attachment information to track usage.

  • In your line of work, you have to dive right in – where the dirt, dust, mud and debris are at their worst. Bobcat® loaders with enclosed cabs have a best-in-class pressurized interior space that minimizes dust, keeping you clean and comfortable. The one-piece seal and unique, curved door pocket ensure the best-possible protection. Keep warm air in the cab during frigid conditions, and ensure that cool air keeps you comfortable on hot days.

  • Quickly swap non-hydraulic attachments without leaving your seat using Bob-Tach® attachment mounting system. And for hydraulic attachments, all you need to do is hook up the hoses after you have securing the attachment.

  • Developed more than 35 years ago, the standard Bob-Tach® mounting system is time-tested. With it, you can change attachments quickly and easily. Use a bucket, auger, landscape rake, grapple and other attachments throughout your day.

  • Our attachments truly help you do more than dig. Bobcat offers attachment versatility across carriers combined with unbeatable attachment support from the Bobcat dealer network. Quick couplers deliver clean, rapid attachment changes every time, and the attachment control kit simplifies operation. High-flow hydraulics provide a big power boost on selected attachments.

  • Bobcat features the only maintenance-free chaincase with exclusive fixed axle tubes, stronger axles, and fully sealed bearings.

  • With two lift path options, Bobcat® skid-steer loaders have you covered. Vertical lift path machines provide more reach at full lift height, while radius lift path models offer maximum reach at truck bed height. The durable and patented single-plane design reduces side-to-side lift arm movement and minimizes load on the pins.

  • The biggest advantage of our Tier 4 solution is simplicity. Bobcat engines meet Tier 4 regulations without a diesel particulate filter (DPF). This reduces downtime that occurs with DPF regeneration and long-term DPF maintenance costs. That allows operators to focus on working.

  • Check your hydraulic oil level quickly and easily as you walk by your machine. Keep an eye on hydraulic oil levels and simplify your daily checks.

  • Adjustable seats on our skid-steer loaders and compact track loaders set new standards for comfort. No matter your height, it’s easy to find a comfortable operating position with multiple adjustment points. With the optional air ride seat, you’ll experience maximum suspension comfort. It adjusts to your weight, helping you smooth out the bumps on your jobsite.

  • Bobcat® loaders offer one-sided serviceability thanks to the exclusive belt-drive system. This durable technology with a multi-groove Kevlar™ belt allows your loader engine to run slower for reduced noise and increased durability. It’s also more efficient with an optimized engine-to-pump package.

  • Bobcat Standard Controls remain the most popular style for loaders. Control the drive functions with dual steering levers. Manage the loader lift and tilt with dual foot pedals.

  • You’ll experience smoother arm movements with lift cylinder cushioning. It eliminates the need for manual arm slowing and reduces harsh movements. For you, that means less vibration, quieter operation and increased comfort.

  • Bobcat® loaders consistently meet your high expectations for performance. The design, balance and weight distribution deliver more usable horsepower, powerful breakout forces and faster cycle times. Work quicker, lift more and outperform your competition.

Unlike other brands, the lift arms do not need to be raised to service the machine. Spend your time completing maintenance work, rather than struggling to gain access.

  • Bobcat diesel engines are engineered to guard against the damaging effects of extreme cold weather. They prevent premature wear by automatically adjusting increasing the idle speed (rpm) to warm up oil and automatically set a maximum operating speed (rpm) to prevent premature component wear or failure.

  • Easily install the radio remote control receiver, control mode selector/e-stop box, and other components to any remote-control-ready Bobcat loader. After installing the kit, you can simply operate many loader functions using the transmitter, including the drive, lift, tilt and auxiliary hydraulic functions.
