Bobcat Company has expanded its M-Series skid-steer loader lineup with the launch of the new S450, a loader that provides operators with improved comfort and performance — and is less than 5 feet wide for working in tight jobsites.

With a spacious cab, a 20 percent increase in auxiliary hydraulic pressures and a non-diesel particulate filter (non-DPF) engine, the 49-horsepower S450 replaces the K-Series S130 skid-steer loader. The Bobcat® S450 is designed to serve a wide and challenging spectrum of tasks. By not requiring a DPF in the S450 engine, operators won’t spend time cleaning the filter, completing the regeneration process or replacing the filter.

The radius-lift-path S450 loader has a low operating weight and an optimal reach for loading or unloading palletized materials from trucks or backfilling around foundations. For faster travel speeds when desired, the S450 has an optional two-speed drive, with a top speed of 6.5 mph in low range and 9.2 mph in high range when equipped with optional Selectable Joystick Controls (SJC).

The S450 joins the M-Series skid-steer loader line, which includes the S510, S530, S550, S570, S590, S630, S650, S750, S770, S850 skid-steer loaders. All M-Series loaders share features such as improved power and performance, good all-around visibility and outstanding operator comfort.
