Bobcat Launches Tier 4 500 Frame-Size Loaders with Non-DPF Emissions Solution
Bobcat Company has released its first Tier 4 loaders – including a non-diesel particulate filter (DPF) engine solution. The 7 medium-sized machines make up the most popular size class in the Bobcat® loader family and provide operators with all of the same performance benefits of the previous interim Tier 4 models.

The Tier 4 Bobcat non-DPF solution was achieved by designing an ultra-low particulate combustion (ULPC) engine. The ULPC is accomplished through a specially designed engine combustion chamber that significantly reduces the amounts of particulate matter created during combustion. Therefore, Tier 4 emissions compliance can be achieved without using a DPF.

In addition to eliminating the need for a DPF, the new engines used in 500 frame-size loaders will have 4 to 12% increase in torque. This increase in torque is produced over a wide range of engine rpm, allowing operators of all skill levels to better utilize the machines’ maximum performance.

The S510, S550 and T550 feature a radius lift path, providing operators the reach and visibility they require for dumping over a wall, backfilling or loading flatbed trucks. The S530, S570, S590 and T590 models feature a vertical lift path, providing operators the ability to lift heavier loads higher, making it easier to clear high-sided truck boxes and hoppers, as well as placing pallets.

New E-Series Cat® Hammers
Ten new Cat® E-Series hammers, designed for use with mini excavators, skidsteer loaders and backhoe loaders, are available in both “silenced” and side-plate versions. Four sizes are offered in two mounting configurations for installation on both Caterpillar and competitive carriers.

Silenced hammers, identified with “s” in the model designation, use a fully enclosed housing to suppress noise, a valuable feature in sensitive work environments and in small-machine applications in which the hammer is in close proximity to the operator. Non-silenced, side plate models are available for all four sizes.

Flat-top models allow versatility for installation on Caterpillar and equipment made by other manufacturers. Pin-on models are available for the H55E and H65E in applications that require a dedicated, hammer-equipped Cat machine.

These new E-Series hammers include 47% fewer parts than did their D-Series predecessors. This allows for quicker and easier servicing. When it comes to daily maintenance, a single grease point is conveniently located and easily accessed. Tool changes are accomplished with common hand tools.
