Bobcat S185 Skid-Steer Loader
This versatile loader gives the operator the best of both worlds. All the advantages of a vertical lift path loader, plus great visibility with the low-profile lift arm design. It includes such standard K-series features as engine and hydraulic systems that monitor functions and shut down the machine to prevent catastrophic failure. This rugged, state-of-the-art loader will save you time, effort and money on every job.
Deluxe Instrumentation Panel: This intelligent Bobcat option helps you prevent theft with keyless start and enables better operation by closely monitoring and interacting with your machine.
Fingertip Controls: Attachments are more comfortable to operate, controlled easily and adjusted simply from the fingertip controls.
Heat and Air Conditioning: Because our optional AC units are integrated into the machine, there is no bulky add-on unit to obstruct your visibility. Automotive-style vents allow you to point your air where you need it for greater comfort in all weather conditions.
Large Entry: In machines with enclosed cabs, large swing-open doors provide ample room for exit and entry.
Radio Capable: The radio features an auxiliary audio input jack that is ready for an MP3 player or other audio device.
Suspension Seat: Other comfort items include an optional fully adjustable suspension seat, adjusting easily to the operator’s weight.
Attachment Control Device: In simplest terms, the optional Attachment Control Device makes it possible for the loader and attachment to communicate.
Bob-Tach® Attachment Mounting System: Change attachments in less than a minute! You can replace a bucket with a pallet fork, landscape rake, auger, grapple, and more than 55 Bobcat loader attachments quickly and easily with the Bob-Tach® mounting system.
Control in Your Hands: With Bobcat compact skid-steer loaders, you can feel and control the loader’s drive, engine torque and tractive effort—you can push your machine to the limit without an engine anti-stall system robbing you of power when you need it the most.
Faster Cycle Times: Hydraulic pumps in Bobcat loaders are matched to cylinder size and loader lift capacity to provide fast cycle times that help you get the job done faster.
High-Flow Hydraulics: Need more attachment power? This optional system provides additional hydraulic power to boost production of attachments.
Hydraulic Bucket Positioning: Optional hydraulic bucket positing keeps your bucket level when raising lift arms, reducing spillage and allowing you to work more efficiently.
More Torque: Bobcat loaders reach maximum torque at a lower RPM to minimize stalling and save time and fuel.
Powerful Breakout Forces: High-efficiency hydraulic pumps deliver more power, matched to demand and providing breakout forces.
Quick Couplers with Pressure Release: By simply pushing the coupler inward, the hydraulic oil is released through a return line back into the machine. The result is clean, quick attachment changes time after time.
Quicker Turning: Bobcat’s weight distribution has been designed for the best turning and skidding to deliver ideal performance, with 70% of distribution in the rear and 30% in the front. This quick turning reduces fuel consumption and power requirements from the engine, increasing the life of drive train and tires.
Remote Control: All loaders equipped with Selectable Joystick Control or All Wheel Steer can be operated by the Radio Remote Control. Bobcat Company is the first and only company to introduce a new way to operate your equipment without having to have an operator in the cab. This is a smart solution for hot, dusty environments or on jobs where you’d rather be outside of the machine.
Ride Control Option: Optional ride control is the cushioning of the loader lift circuit, which helps increase the smoothness of the ride.
Stronger Hydraulics: The Bobcat engine, hydraulic pump, horsepower and cubic-inch displacement are configured precisely for each model’s specific operating capacity.
Transverse Engine/Belt Drive: Thanks to the Bobcat belt-drive system, loader engines can be run slower, resulting in a quieter machine that lasts longer. This drive belt system allows Bobcat loaders to use an optimized engine-to-pump package, making it more efficient.
Two-Speed: Boost top travel speed by as much as 57 percent and reduce the time it takes to travel across a jobsite or between jobs.
