Get optimal reach and visibility with the Bobcat® S550 skid-steer loader. This radius lift path machine is ideal for dumping over a wall, backfilling or loading flatbed trucks. Travel up to 11 mph with the two-speed travel option. Plus enjoy all the improvements of M-Series loaders, including increased visibility, a more comfortable cab and easier serviceability.
Attachment Control Device: In simplest terms, the optional Attachment Control Device makes it possible for the loader and attachment to communicate.
Bob-Tach®: 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.
Counterweight Ready: The new Bobcat loaders come with holes for frame-mounted counterweights, so you can increase lifting performance with certain attachments.
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 positioning keeps your bucket level when raising lift arms, reducing spillage and allowing you to work more efficiently.
Increased Tractive Effort: The new loaders feature increased tractive effort. That means you can push more and dig harder than ever before.
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 provides high breakout forces.
