Bobcat Company has expanded its M-Series skid-steer loader lineup with the launch of the new S450. It features a spacious cab, a 20 percent increase in auxiliary hydraulic pressures and a non-diesel particulate filter engine. The 49-horsepower S450 replaces the K-Series S130 skid-steer loader and 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. It also has a rear bumper that extends past the tailgate to protect the S450 from obstacles on the worksite.
