L23 Small Articulated Loader
The Bobcat® L23 small articulated loader is small enough to fit in small lots, backyards and other tight jobsites and tough enough to take on the job with minimal ground disturbance. A tight-turning articulation joint allows maneuverability in confined spaces. It delivers an impressive lifting capability to maximize productivity. And you can add Bobcat attachments for added versatility.

Features

  • Small articulated loaders deliver precise maneuverability. The articulation joint enables the rear tires to match the path of the front tires as they turn, resulting in a highly nimble machine that navigates around obstacles with ease and works well in enclosed yards and small work zones.

  • A dependable serpentine accessory drive belt requires no tensioning and no maintenance.

  • Small articulated loaders feature an easy-to-read, backlit instrumentation panel that provides visibility to operating information, critical machine errors and warnings.

  • The dependable 25-hp, 2600 rpm engine provides generous torque at a lower rpm, offering performance that is more forgiving when pushing the machine to its limit under load.

  • Small articulated loaders are highly transportable and relatively lightweight, enabling you to quickly get your machine to the job and get to work. They easily fit on pan trailers or dump trailers – and even some enclosed trailers that are used to transport small-frame skid-steer loaders.

  • Bobcat® small articulated loaders can lift and handle heavy loads, and they include a standard integrated counterweight for optimal lift capacity. You can add on optional rear counterweights to further increase lift capacity and productivity.

  • With 30+ compatible attachments, a small articulated loader can be used to complete many kinds of unique jobs that usually require multiple machines. Bobcat attachments deliver the most versatility for your equipment investment. Whether it’s handling dirt and snow, digging holes, doing brushwork or moving pallets of materials – with the right attachment, you can adapt to a new task in minutes.

  • Add additional protection – and worry less about potential impact damage to the cooling package and radiator – by installing the optional rear guard accessory.

  • The steering wheel and joystick are simple to reach and intuitive to use, with fingertip auxiliary or telescopic controls that facilitate quick, simple operation – as compared to mechanical switches. Bobcat® small articulated loaders also provide variable flow control similar to skid-steer and compact track loaders, unlike the standard mechanical levers found in other machines.

  • To protect the machine when working in tight areas and around obstacles, Bobcat® small articulated loaders have cab corner protection. Rubber bumpers help protect the cab’s corners while articulating the loader.

  • Small articulated loaders include side and rear windows that open to provide fresh airflow through the cab, providing added comfort for the operator.

  • The dual-element, high-capacity filter with visual indicator is one feature that makes Bobcat® small articulated loaders easy to maintain. The air filter delivers clean airflow to your engine and excellent contaminant-holding capacity for long life and maximum component protection.

  • Bobcat® small articulated loaders don’t skimp on comfort features. With a spacious cab that offers more room for the operator, cross-ventilation windows to provide fresh airflow and an optional enclosed, heated cab, these machines are engineered to improve operator comfort in every season.

  • With their efficient cooling systems, Bobcat® small articulated loaders offer leading performance for improved operation and component protection. Side and front inlets bring cool air into the engine compartment and send it through the screened rear exit. The rear radiator screen is removable for easy cleanout, and its corrugated steel construction provides excellent durability. A separate temperature-controlled hydraulic oil cooler operates as needed to ensure quieter operation as well.

  • To improve operator comfort and productivity during long days of operation, the interior of small articulated loaders offers ample room inside the cab, including headroom, foot room and space between the seat and the steering wheel.

  • Fuses and relays on Bobcat® small articulated loaders are centrally located behind a cover inside the cab.

  • Bobcat® small articulated loaders feature the Bob-Tach® attachment mounting system for using a variety of attachments. They can also be equipped with the optional Power Bob-Tach system for changing non-hydraulic attachments without leaving the comfort of your cab.

  • Bobcat® small articulated loaders are designed to make daily maintenance and regular service easy and efficient. They feature easy access to the battery terminal, a high-capacity air filter for long life, a maintenance-free engine accessory drive belt and centrally located access to fuses and relays.

  • For even more attachment possibilities, Bobcat® small articulated loaders include auxiliary hydraulics. A maximum flow of up to 12 gpm and up to 2,900 psi gives you powerful performance and superb work results. Pressure-release quick couplers relieve system pressure for easy hydraulic hookup and removal.

  • With their tight-turning articulated steering and light overall footprint, Bobcat® small articulated loaders limit cuts or tears in the turf when turning or hauling a load. After the job is complete, you’ll have fewer time-consuming surface repairs to make.

  • The optional cab enclosure helps keep operators comfortable and productive in cold and wet weather, and includes a heated seat, strategically placed, louvered vents and removable window panels for flexibility and comfort in all seasons.

  • Based on operating conditions, Bobcat® small articulated loaders automatically enable one of two traction modes – High-Traction mode for control over rough and slippery terrain or Turf-Safe mode for the least possible ground disturbance. The optional traction assist switch enables you to momentarily override the automatic modes to travel through adverse conditions.
