New High Performance T450 Tracked Loader from Bobcat

Posted: 12 January 2015

Waterloo, Belgium. Bobcat has expanded the company’s range of compact tracked loaders with the launch of the new T450 model. Filling the gap in the range between the T110 and T590 models once occupied by the discontinued T140 loader, the T450 offers a massive increase in power combined with hydraulic and hydrostatic efficiency improvements that translate into significantly increased productivity.

Manufactured at the Bobcat plant in Dobris in the Czech Republic, the T450 is powered by the Bobcat D24 45.5 kW (61 HP) turbocharged diesel engine, providing 25% more power than the T140 model, ensuring the T450 has the best performance and engine power to weight ratio in its class.  The D24 engine in the T450 meets the current Stage IIIB emission requirements through the use of cooled exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) and diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC) after-treatment technologies, with no diesel particulate filter (DPF).

High Productivity

High productivity results from the increased pressure of the hydraulic system which provides increased attachment performance -     the T450 can be matched with over 80 different attachments and there are rear hydraulic auxiliary and 7-pin ACD connector options available.  The T450 is equipped as standard with the quick-change Bob-Tach attachment mounting frame.  However, customers can choose the optional Power Bob-Tach system to change non-hydraulic attachments simply by flipping a switch inside the cab.

Equipped with radial lift boom arms, the rated operating capacity of the T450 has also increased from 642 kg to 665 kg, while the operating weight has been reduced from 2990 kg to 2789 kg.  Thanks to its compact dimensions and lower weight, the T450 is even easier to transport on a trailer towed by a light truck, 4 x 4, or all-terrain vehicle.

The T450 features the same new generation cab design used on the recently launched S450 skid-steer loader and all larger new generation Bobcat compact loaders, providing class-leading entry and exit through the largest cab door opening on this size of machine.  The cab is also fully enclosed as standard, including a front door and wiper system.  One of the many advantages offered by Bobcat compact tracked loaders is the ability to extend the working seasons, and for customers looking to do this, the enclosed cab offers added value in the form of comfort and protection from the elements. 

As well as greater operator space and all round visibility, combined with enhanced front and rear working lights, customers can also choose cab pressurisation and heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) options – Bobcat is the only company to offer these options on this size of tracked loader. 

Other options include Bobcat’s Advanced Control System (ACS) and Selectable Joystick Controls (SJC) controls.  The latter provides operator seat mounted joysticks for increased control and comfort with unique electric-over-hydraulic joystick control for a machine of this size.  Customers can also choose the two speed drive option for faster travel when required, especially beneficial in long haul applications and the Deluxe Instrumentation Panel option.

Like all Bobcat compact equipment, the T450 is designed to work long hours on demanding jobsites with minimal time spent on routine maintenance.  Improved uptime and serviceability features include the hydraulically powered SmartFAN – a patented, dual-path cooling system drawing cool, clean air from above while forcing hot air from the engine compartment and directing it out through two side vents.  The T450 also has a transverse mounted engine for optimised weight distribution and full and direct accessibility to service components.  Simple checks and superior design make it easier to access systems and perform maintenance correctly at the proper intervals.

Superior Flotation and Very Low Ground Pressure

The T450 and the rest of the compact tracked loader range from Bobcat are designed to provide excellent performance on very soft or muddy ground and sand, as well as on uneven terrain.  Dedicated rubber tracks provide superior traction, flotation and very low ground pressure for working very effectively in all of these environments. 

The compact size and superior ability to work in difficult ground conditions mean that the new T450 compact tracked loader will appeal to a wide variety of users, including applications in landscaping, house and office building, construction, equipment rental, recycling, local authorities, agriculture, forestry and nurseries.

As a Bobcat compact tracked loader, the T450 is ideal for any application where soil compaction and ground disturbance should be minimised.  Moreover, since the rubber tracks will not mark paved surfaces, the T450 tracked loader can easily travel over and be used on public roads.  Special applications include use in clean-up work after severe storms, floods, and natural disasters, particularly in areas and in conditions where the use of larger machines is restricted.
