Bobcat going electric in the skid steer and compact track loader market

April 14, 2022

Bobcat going electric in the skid steer and compact track loader market

Find out how Bobcat’s all-electric T7X compact track loader compares with their diesel line-up.

Backed by their industry-leading expertise in compact equipment, Bobcat introduces the first all-electric T7X compact track loader. Embracing electric as the way of the future, this launch marks the beginning of pathing the industry towards a greener future.

How do these machines perform against traditional diesel-powered equipment? Here is the breakdown.


Bobcat T7X Compact Track Loader

The Battery

Fully powered by a 62-kilowatt lithium-ion battery, the T7X is equipped to match the power of its diesel-powered counterparts. With a full charge, you can get up to four hours of continuous uptime, or a full day of work with intermittent use. Paired with an electrical powertrain, this machine delivers instant torque up to three times more than traditional loaders.

The Build

The Bobcat T7X replaces traditional hydraulic components with anew electrical drive system consisting of electric drive motors and ball screw actuators. This means virtually no fluids required – in fact, only one quart of eco-friendly coolant is used compared to 60 gallons of fluid in diesel and hydraulic powered alternatives. Also built with less parts than a diesel-engine loader, maintenance and repair costs are hit all-time lows.

The Impact

Work with zero-emissions and lessen your business’s environmental footprint. Also improve operator environment with a drastic reduction in noise (operator position noise level of 65.4 dB) and vibration. Plus with a bystander noise level of 92.7 dB you can work anytime in the day without disrupting neighboring communities.
