THE MOST POPULAR TRACK LOADERS ON THE MARKET 36 Compact Equipment JANUARY 2019 Manufacturers Share Their Hottest Tracked Tool Carriers and Why They're So Popular Compiled by CE Staff Takeuchi TL6R The most compact unit in the Takeuchi track loader lineup, the TL6R's com- pact dimensions allow it to get into areas with limited space such as garages and chicken houses. With a radial configuration, the TL6R is agile and easy to transport. The undercarriage components are model specific with larger bear- ings resulting in slower shaft speeds for longer component life. All rollers are permanently sealed, with metal face seals to keep dirt and other contaminates out for greater durability. The TL6R features a newly designed cabin with an overhead 5.7-in. multi-information display and backlit rocker switches that control a variety of functions. This track loader comes standard with Takeuchi Fleet Management for two years at no cost. For more, visit . Bobcat T870 with 5-Link Torsion Suspension The Bobcat T870 compact track loader features the 5-Link torsion suspension undercarriage which is the latest innovation from Bobcat Co., delivering increased durability and reliability, improved stability and unmatched ride quality. It features longer-lasting components that are better protected from wear and tear to minimize machine downtime. And now, a unique fifth link on the rear axle stabilizes the loader's undercarriage when grading and lifting loads for increased performance. As the torsion suspension undercarriage absorbs stress and vibrations on rough terrain, it provides a smoother ride that operators can feel throughout the machine.

John Deere 333G The 100-hp 333G compact track loader from John Deere has a refined vertical-lift loader boom design that rises higher, reaches farther and lifts more for easier loading. The 333G works comfortably in tight quarters, so operators can accomplish more with less machine. Increased rated operating capacities of up to 3,700 lbs gives it the muscle needed to master heavy loads for a variety of applications. Boom design keeps the load close to the machine for better stability. A low center of gravity, 35-degree bucket rollback and optional ride control and self-leveling also helps keep buckets full and forks loaded — making this machine popular for those looking for a Swiss army knife on the jobsite.
