Having consistent tension minimises the chance of the tracks working loose in tough working conditions. The use of a horizontally mounted hydraulic track tension cylinder provides more room between the carriage and the track for easier cleaning.


The latest T870 is 2,103mm wide and it is fitted with vertical lift path arms that provide a maximum bucket pin height of 3,658mm. The machine is powered by a 74.6kW Bobcat D34 diesel engine that is Stage IV emissions compliant.


New attachment trio


Three new attachments were also displayed, suitable for use on the manufacturer’s skid steer and compact tracked loaders, comprising the SAW20 wheel saw, the PSL48 planer and the FRC150ST forestry cutter. Made for Bobcat by Simex, the new 1,410mm-diameter SAW20 is a self-levelling unit suitable for digging fibre optic cable trenches. The wheel has a cutting width of 50mm and a maximum digging depth of 500mm. It has fifty 13mm-diameter picks that are arranged on five individually bolt-on segments around the wheel, and there is a 650mm side-shift.


The latest T870 features has a 5-link torsion suspension undercarriage.


Simex is also the source for the PSL48 self-levelling planer which has a maximum cutting width of 1,200mm. Produced as an option to Bobcat’s existing 1,000mm planer, it has a 367mm-diameter drum carrying ninety picks.


The 1.5m-wide FRC150ST standard torque forestry cutter put on a good performance at the event, being seen in action on a forestry spec T590 tracked loader with extra guards, counterweight and Lexan glass cab door. Made in Italy for Bobcat by Seppi, this 850kg attachment complements Bobcat’s FRC150HT and FRC200HT high- torque forestry cutters. The FRC150ST features a lighter drum with 30 spirally mounted carbide teeth and improved hose routing. It is said to be able to quickly cut through small trees with trunks up to 120mm in diameter during continuous operation, and dense undergrowth.
