features and benefits
Bobcat 530 mini loader
The Bobcat 530 model refers to the middle class of equipment. However, its main advantages are performance, durability, small size and economy. Its stability on any surface is guaranteed by the wheelbase, which is slightly longer than in the previous model. This innovation also has a positive effect on the maneuverability of the devices when working with loads. To lift the boom a three-point mechanism is used, which works in the vertical direction. Bobcat S530 mini loader can be used even for lifting goods to the floors in the construction of buildings.
The technique retains its properties regardless of working conditions and degree of loading. At the same time, the machine requires no maintenance. Movement is smooth, both during work and when starting from the ground.
For difficult working conditions, special equipment is developed – modifications of the boom (for greater lifting capacity), cab, hydraulic systems, etc.

The ventilation system allowed to reduce the noise level and increase the possibility of adjusting the temperature of the air flow. To prevent dust from entering the air systems and the cab, an overpressure is pressurized here. When the door is opened, air does not flow in, but rushes in.
The controls are adjustable, with pneumatic shock absorbers. Compared to the previous version, the seat can be moved forward and backward more easily. The cab silencer has been increased by 60% and the area has also become slightly larger.
There is a powerful heater, cup holder, radio and a place to install a radio for comfortable operation in the cab. Several messages are also available.
Wheels are checked through the side window, for the bucket through the front window. Thanks to the dashboard layout, they can’t be distracted from the work process. A joystick or lever is used to control the movement. They perform their functions with great precision. The pedals are designed in such a way that they control the working body. Halogen lights are used for nighttime operation.
Control systems installed on the machine: SJK, AHC, ACS. Each of them is installed for different types of devices. Thanks to them, the operator does not need to sit in the cab. Thus, it is possible to limit the risk to life and health when working in extreme situations.
With all cultivation equipment, the hydraulic system must be perfect. It is therefore optimized for the capacity and size of the hydraulic cylinder of the machine. The Bob-Ag system ensures short cycle times and you can change parts in no time.
By distributing the load from the weight of the engine and fuel tank, the mounting of special tires significantly increases the service life of the tires. The same effect has been achieved in the transmission. Piston pumps installed in the Bobcat S530 guarantee smooth gear shifting.
An additional plus in the eyes of buyers is a beautiful design of devices and reliability of construction.
operation and maintenance
The battery and filters can be easily replaced or inspected by opening the engine compartment. The cover itself now opens to the left. So you can easily pour fuel into the tank when the cover is open.
The chains for connecting the axles to the hydraulic motor are in an oil bath. They are in the middle of the machine, which is the reason for the artificial ground. The axles are not interchangeable, and the chains do not need to be tensioned for the duration of operation.
FOPS and ROPS protection systems allow you to lift the cab to reach the transmission and hydraulic system.
The first inspection is done after 50 hours of operation and after another 250.
Various attachments for the Bobcat S530
There are about fifty types, including:
- Simple and landscape rakes;
- Snow blowers;
