Bobcat 753 Specs: Skid Steer Features and Design


The 753 Skid Steer is a non-current model skid steer offered by the company. Due to it being older, there is limited information available on it.

This article provides everything I’ve found on the website and brochure.

There appear to be two versions of the 753 that are available. The first is one from 1989 and the G-Series.

The differences between the two seem to be quite minimal. The main differences are in the overall length and weight.

Either way, all information is taken from the Bobcat website.

  • Power: 40 hp/43.5 hp

The Bobcat S753 supplies 40 hp through the diesel engine.

The 753 requires diesel fuel and has a 23.9 gal gas tank.

  • Rated Operating Capacity (ISO): 1,300 lbs (589.7 kg)

The Bobcat 753 has a tipping capacity of 2,612 lbs which means that the vehicle will not be able to lift and will physically tip forward if exceeded. However, the operation capacity is the actual safe capacity that can be loaded on the skid steer.

The operating capacity is usually around 50% of the tipping capacity.

The operating capacity (ISO) of the Bobcat 753 is 1,300 lbs.

Weight Specs

  • Operating Weight: 4,330 lbs (1,964 kg)/4,740 lbs

The Bobcat 753 weighs 4,330 lbs. This is important if you plan to transport this vehicle; you must know the weight in order to insure a trailer and truck that can support this weight.

  • Width: 54 in (119.4 cm)/ 55 in

Knowing the height of you vehicle is important as well because you need to understand how it can maneuver and fit either during transportation or on site.
