The new Bobcat S740 skid steer loader is the first Tier 4-compliant loader in the company’s 700 frame-size loader line. The S740 is powered by an engine that is under 75 hp and doesn’t require a diesel particulate filter (DPF), selective catalytic reduction (SCR) or diesel exhaust fluid (DEF). The company says the S740 boasts the highest rated operating capacity in the under 75-hp skid steer loader class and provides customers with a large, powerful machine for working in construction, landscaping, agriculture and buildings and grounds, as well as other market segments. Like all M-Series skid steer loaders, the S740 features a unique cab-forward design that moves the operator closer to the attachment and provides visibility in all directions.
