Mini track loader

The MT55 mini track loader features more horsepower and a wider track for lower ground pressure, to get jobs done faster and with less turf disturbance. Although the machine is just 3.46 feet wide, its wider tracks lower its ground pressure to 4.1 psi. A turf-friendly lug track distributes its 2679-pound operating weight over a large area, reducing ground pressure and minimizing damage to landscapes, paving stones, and other surfaces. Other features include a rubber-track undercarriage for better traction and floatation in soft, wet, or muddy conditions. Bobcat Co., an Ingersoll-Rand Co. Circle 12. CONEXPO Booth G100
