Bobcat has once again extended its Compact Wheel Loader portfolio by introducing the latest L95 model. This top-of-the-range model, together with the L85 and L75 compact wheel loaders, offers high power, ease of use, intuitive controls, operator comfort, and attachment flexibility. The L95 also incorporates the latest product updates based on customer feedback, which are available in the 2024 versions of the L75 and L85. This premium model is perfect for a wide range of applications, including construction, landscaping, industrial, rental, waste, recycling, road work, snow removal, maintenance, and even agriculture.
Jiri Karmazin, Loaders Product Manager at Bobcat, said: “High performance is assured in the L95 by the combination of the powerful Bobcat 75 HP engine, the hydraulics and the 40 km/h maximum travel speed. As in the L75 and L85, this is complemented by the comfortable and spacious cab, combined with the high stability and lift capacity and impressive breakout, push and pull forces, together with a comprehensive selection of Bobcat attachments. And the enhanced Automatic Ride Control system protects operators from any bumps or rough terrain.”
Buckle Up: Top Speed Now Soars to 40 km/h!
Operators of the L95 can now shift from 1st to 2nd gear when stopped, which allows for acceleration up to 40 km/h. This boost in speed will expand the boundaries of the job site and eliminate the need for additional resources, such as truck transportation. These enhancements can result in significant cost savings and elevate the daily utilization of the machine.
With its intuitive control scheme, safety features, and Bobcat’s Flex Drive with auto idle function, the L95 is ideal for new operators, who can operate it with confidence. The machine is equipped with Automatic Parking Brake and Slope Assist features, ensuring that the parking brake is automatically engaged and disengaged as needed. These automotive-style features are unique to the industry and make the L95 stand out from other machines of its kind.
Jiri Karmazin added: “In the L95, we are introducing some new features to the industry to further improve ease-of-use. The joystick is now integrated with the suspension seat to provide the best operator experience and comfort. The location of the controls on the joystick is designed to make it easy and comfortable to operate, even during long hours of work. Based on customer feedback, we have also improved the forward-reverse response time, together with increased lift and tilt multifunctionality, to enhance productivity and operating experience.”
FOPS Level II operator protection
The L95’s design prioritizes operator comfort, safety, and ease of use. Equipped with a fully adjustable and heated premium seat, HVAC system, and two-way adjustable steering column, the machine ensures operators’ complete comfort, regardless of the duration of their tasks. The cab provides full FOPS Level II operator protection and features two steps for easy ingress and egress. Furthermore, the full glass door and powerful LED lights ensure optimal visibility. Operators can stay connected with a DAB+ radio and hands-free functionality for phone calls.
The L95’s control placement is designed to facilitate ease of operation, even for extended periods. The operator can access controls for differential lock, turtle/rabbit mode, boom float, and auxiliary flow control at the top of the joystick for effortless accessibility. The 5-inch LED display is managed utilizing the jog shuttle, enabling the operator to navigate and confirm setup while also quickly switching to the rear-view camera display. This jog shuttle also manages all vital information display and setup screens.
