Bobcat® MT55 Compact Track Loader

Bobcat® MT55 Compact Track Loader

The MT55 mini tracked loader delivers big machine performance in a small package. The MT55 combines the attachment versatility of its larger sibling Bobcat machines with the convenience of a walk-behind loader.

  • Description


Its small size and turf-friendly track drive make the MT55 a great solution to limited access and low-disturbance tasks. The innovative control panel makes the MT55 easy to operate, and the optional ride-on platform adds comfort and conveniences to this top performer.

Versatility taken to the limit!

Share most of the S70 attachments. The MT55 digs, tills, trenches, sweeps, breaks up concrete, moves material… and much more! You will be amazed at how productive the MT55 can be on any jobsite.


Compact size

With a width of just 914 mm, the MT55 loader is the ideal machine for working in tight spaces like doorways, gates and backyard areas. It also offers 360 degrees of visibility that only a mini loader can provide. (see Brochure) With an operating weight of only 1186 kg, the MT55 is also very easy to transport on a trailer.


Loader performance

The MT55 loader offers the lifting power, lift height, loading and dumping abilities of a small skid-steer loader. All-hydrostatic drive provides exceptional performance while digging and turning with a full bucket. The C-pattern tracks reduce ground disturbance without sacrificing tractive effort.


Performance in a smaller package

With an engine power of 17.5 kW and a load capacity of 254 kg the MT55 is the ideal machine for numerous applications, especially in landscaping and demolition.

It eliminates much of the back-breaking and labour intensive work. Moreover, as a tracked machine with low ground pressure, it minimizes damage to lawns and gardens.



The MT55 loader includes many safety features, including a reverse travel stop panel on the rear of the machine, which automatically returns the travel lever to neutral in an emergency. Lift and tilt lockouts prevent the raised lift arms from lowering or an attachment from tilting down if a control lever is accidentally moved after the machine is shut off. Other safety features include neutral start interlocks and a parking brake.


Operator friendly

The MT55 controls are simple and easy to use. Travel speed and steering are controlled by one multi-function lever on the left side of the instrument panel. One hand lever on the right side of the panel controls the lift and tilt functions. The auxiliary control lever is located between them.
