Bobcat Clark 732 Specificationsby Alexis Writing
Skid steer loaders are used by many small landscaping businesses and in other types of industries. These loaders are intended for use either with loading skids or crushed stone with a bucket attachment, or for use with a variety of hydraulic accessories that could replace the skid forks. The Bobcat Clark brand is one manufacturer of skid steer loaders, and the Bobcat Clark 732, which debuted in 1978, is one of their offerings There were a number of reasons that the Bobcat Clark 732 was such a success, and the specifications that the Bobcat Clark 732 had are a large part of the success of this particular loader.
Operating Weight and Tipping Load
The Bobcat Clark 732 had an operating weight of 4,470 lbs, with a tipping capacity of 2,670 lbs. The maximum rated operating load was 1,300 lbs, making the Bobcat Clark 732 ideal for lifting small loads, such as skids of material and other lightweight loads. The tipping load was almost double the maximum rated operating load, meaning that if the operator made an error in judgment on the size and weight of the load he was lifting, the skid steer loader was not likely to tip, unless it was being used incorrectly.
Overall Hydraulic Pump Capacity
The hydraulic pump on the Bobcat Clark 732 had a maximum operating pump capacity of 11 gallons per minute. This allowed for operation of a large number of different high flow hydraulic accessories with the Bobcat Clark 732 skid steer loader, such as optional hydraulic chisels for breaking up concrete and other materials, as well as other attachments such as clamp loaders and razorback loader attachments, as well as concrete saws.
Engine and Fuel Specs
The engine of the Bobcat Clark 732 skid steer loader was a gasoline powered engine, which made it desirable for the easy availability of fuel in areas where diesel fuel is not common, or where it is not desirable to store separate diesel tanks due to the other gasoline equipment in operation at that work site. The engine was also liquid cooled rather than air cooled, meaning that it could function at a higher operating temperature without overheating, even in hot areas or in the dead heat of summer.
