Bobcat Company has introduced its Tier 4-compliant 700 frame-size compact track loader. The Bobcat T740 is powered by a diesel engine that is under 75 horsepower and does not require a diesel particulate filter (DPF), selective catalytic reduction (SCR) or diesel exhaust fluid (DEF).

The vertical-lift-path loaders are designed to lift loads higher. The hydraulic systems on M-Series loaders also have higher standard flow and pressure, and an optional 30.5-gpm high-flow hydraulic option gives T740 operators more attachment power. More than 60 genuine Bobcat attachments are approved for use with the T740.

Bobcat T740 compact track loaders use a diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC) to meet Tier 4 emission standards, but without the need for a DPF. The DOC is a special catalyst that reacts with engine exhaust upon contact and transforms combustion byproducts into water and carbon dioxide.

The Tier 4-compliant Bobcat non-DPF solution features a low particulate combustion (ULPC) engine with an engine combustion chamber that reduces the amounts of particulate matter created during combustion — making Tier 4 compliance possible without using a DPF.

The T740 also features a cab-forward design that moves operators closer to the attachment and the work area and large side and rear windows. The pressurized cab includes a one-piece seal that goes all the way around the door and fits into a special curved pocket. Standard controls with power assist are the base control configuration for the T740. Selectable Joystick Controls (SJC) are available as an option.
