About the Bobcat Rental Compact Track Loader T62 R-Series

The Bobcat Rental T62 compact track loader is a radius lift path machine that gives operators increased lifting capabilities at maximum reach, class-leading visibility and unmatched comfort. The inline engine design and durable direct-drive system deliver the performance and durability required on today’s jobsites. The 5-Link torsion suspension undercarriage dramatically reduces stress and vibration from the undercarriage, making each ride more comfortable.

The R-Series Rental T62 compares in platform size to the M2-Series T550 in the Bobcat compact track loader lineup.

Highlights of the Bobcat Rental compact track loader include:

  • One-piece, sealed and pressurized cab
  • Dual-direction bucket positioning
  • Cast steel lift arm sections and increased lifting capabilities
  • Cast steel Bob-Tach attachment mounting system
  • Clear side enclosure with automatic heat and air conditioning
  • Easy-pull, easy-secure side window
  • Protected battery with remote jumpstart
  • Foot pedals standard, SJC controls available

R-Series performs better than any previous generation of Bobcat loader.

  • Bobcat Company redesigned R-Series loaders from the ground up with optimized performance features including increased lifting capabilities and improved cooling. They’re also easier to service and more comfortable, and their powerful hydraulics make them even more versatile than previous generations.

R-Series loaders were designed to improve quality, reliability and durability

  • R-Series loaders are backed by a total focus on quality. Cast steel construction added to multiple areas for improved strength for improved quality, reliability, and durability. R-Series are the most powerful, durable loaders Bobcat Company has built.

Operators can lift bigger loads at full reach.

  • R-Series lift arms feature cast steel construction for increased material strength and rigidity. Cast steel sections allow for more material where it’s needed, which provides greater strength while enabling a slimmer profile arm that also enhances visibility. The redesigned arms combined with the high hydraulic performance means you can lift heavier weights, even at full reach.

It’s easier to take care of this machine.

  • Industry-leading serviceability is part of the Bobcat DNA. You can easily find and reach the service points on this machine; when it’s time for maintenance or repairs, the entire R-Series cab lifts out of the way to provide improved service access – with hardware on the cab exterior for easy removal. The engine and fuel system have been redesigned to make them simpler to service. The easy-to-read display can diagnose common problems and let you know if something on the machine needs repair.

The midsized T62 offers a good mix of size and performance.

  • This is a good machine for construction work, especially commercial and infrastructure construction. It has the power you need, and you can transport it without much hassle.

Bobcat Company introduces new and improved compact track loader undercarriages T740 Root Grapple

New solid-mount and optional Roller Suspension™ system undercarriages are available for select Bobcat® compact track loaders, including the T550, T590, T630, T650, T740, T750 and T770.

Superior ride quality

Dual-flange front idlers now ride on the rubber track’s roller way. These new front idlers, along with wider rollers, help reduce vibration to improve operator comfort and reduce track wear on the inside of the track. Single-flange idlers are still found on the rear of the machine to help minimize de-tracking.

The optional Roller Suspension™ system has also been changed to optimize ride and operational characteristics. It also incorporates the dual flange front idlers, wider rollers, along with mono-leaf springs, for smoother action. The front idlers have been relocated to enhance machine operation.

Better track carriage cleanout

  • A horizontally mounted tension cylinder opens up more room between the carriage and track for easier cleanout. The undercarriage is sloped on both sides to shed material, such as sand, dirt, mud and debris, better than the previous design. Additionally, raised cutout between the rollers allow for easier cleaning.

Increased fuel capacity

  • Depending on the model, operators will see an increase in fuel capacity by up to 45 percent. Actual volume and operational time will vary by machine model.

Enhanced ground clearance

  • Ground clearance at the center of the undercarriage has been improved by up to 29 percent, helping operators travel through mud, sand and other soft soil conditions more easily.

Improved clearance at the rear of the machine

  • Clearance at the rear of the machine has been increased. This allows machines to travel over curbs and other obstacles with less chance of catching on them.

Interchangeable tracks

  • Narrow and wide tracks for compact track loaders are interchangeable at a Bobcat dealership.
