Because it is the highest-lifting compact loader on the market, the BOBCAT COMPACT TRACK LOADER T870 can carry higher loads than ever before, allowing you to take on larger assignments while increasing your productivity with each lift cycle. It is equipped with the industry’s most advanced 5-Link torsion suspension undercarriage.

Performance and Fuel Economy

The 5-Link torsion suspension undercarriage, engineered for performance, take the T870 to new heights of productivity on the worksite. For example, the front roller and idler mount are cast steel and iron to provide long-lasting performance and durability. Including an extra link on the rear axle increases stability, reducing the “rocking” or “bouncing” action that is usually associated with compact track loaders.

In terms of ride quality, no other manufacturer can compete with the torsion suspension. Working together, each component helps to effectively absorb workplace tension while you’re on the project. Ride quality is improved by including an extra pivot point, and the rear axles are strengthened by a unique fifth link that increases stability. Other components, such as bigger track rollers, dual flange front idlers, and a longer track, all contribute to the overall ride quality of your bike.

Design, Function, and Quality

Designed from the ground up for dependability, the 5-Link torsion suspension undercarriage will withstand the rigors of even the most demanding construction sites. As a result, all components have been engineered to endure the most punishing worksite conditions. It all begins with an upgraded drive motor that receives constant lubrication from the hydraulic system, resulting in longer service life and increased reliability. Other components, such as the shaft within the gearbox, track rollers, and the rear idler, are considerably bigger and more robust, as is the rear idler. A thorough routing of hydraulic lines within the undercarriage ensures clear of possible snag locations.

The 5-Link torsion suspension undercarriage gives extra stability and control when lifting a heavy load or performing grading operations. When it comes to comfort and performance, there is no trade-off. An extra link on the rear axle gives more stability, which increases the output of your machine. Noise and vibration from the job site make it difficult to work comfortably. With the 5-Link torsion suspension undercarriage, you’ll notice less vibration and better sound dampening than with a conventional design. Vibration is reduced by using an extra pivot point in the undercarriage. Torsion axles also help to reduce vibration and make your ride more comfortable. In every aspect of your working experience, you’ll notice a significant improvement across the system.

A Unique Suspension

Bobcat T870 CTL benefits from the 5-Link torsion undercarriage, which will provide unrivaled durability and provide a whole new level of comfort. Reduced sound levels and a smoother ride are felt throughout the cab, including the seat, floor, and control surfaces. It is possible to efficiently absorb the stress and vibrations generated on your worksite because of an extra pivot point and torsion axles. Its unique fifth link behaves as an independent suspension system, reducing the “rocking” impact that other manufacturers struggle to eradicate with traditional torsion undercarriage systems. With the longer track comes broader rollers and a front idler with two flanges, which rides on rubber to minimize vibration even more.

Nobody makes money if they are not actively seeking employment. For this reason, each component is designed to provide dependable performance daily. Drive motors for Doosan Group lifts are lubricated with oil drawn from a separate cavity of the hydraulic system, resulting in a significant increase in the life of the outer bearings. The driving shaft within the gearbox has a 15 percent bigger diameter than the outside diameter. Wide rollers provide the most contact with the tracks and last longer. With two simple service outlets to reach, it is also less difficult to clean and refill the drive motor reservoir.
