    I am new to the forum and would like to find out specs of a Bobcat loader I would like to purchase. The dealer seems stumped (red flag ) as to the exact flow specs of the machine. The loader is a 2003 Bobcat s250, high flow, My question is what is the gal/min flow for this year unit ? 30.2 or 37 gal/min? Any help would be appreciated.

    Bobcat just updated their high flow to achieve flows of what nearly everyone else has been doing for years. I believe that the flow is 30 gpm for an 03 model. The newest ones are 40 gpm or just under.

    Thankyou for the info Ksss. The confusing info from bobcat just states "the K-series loaders flow 37gal/min. I thought all the "S" models were considered the "K-series". The brochures for the loaders states 30.2 but are not dated or do they define a serial number range for the new flow rates.

    If your Bobcat dealer is stumped, that's not a good thing. Your service rep should be able to tell you whether it's 30.7, 40, or 37 GPM. The 40 GPM machines may have overheating problems, but if you either don't use high flow much or if you live in a northern state (which you do), you may be okay.

    The 2003 model should be a 30.7 GPM flow. Not all S--- loaders are K-series.

    What other specs do you need?

    K series loader say bobcat under the model number and are model year 200 and up. An 03 S250 will say turbo under the S250 decals and therefore not a K series machine. you can go to bobcat's website and look up specs on past models. hope this helps.
