A Yorkshire based building contractor has purchased a new compact Bobcat Telehandler to help it handle and recycle materials on site.
C & AJ Marshall Builders Ltd, based in Leeds in West Yorkshire in the UK, has purchased a new compact Bobcat TL30.60 telehandler for housebuilding projects, to carry out lifting and loading work and for handling recycled construction, demolition and excavation materials to be reused on site.
Ben Marshall, owner of C & AJ Marshall Builders, said: “We are very impressed with the new Bobcat telehandler. It complements the larger telehandlers we also run on our sites which are designed more for lifting rather loading. The new Bobcat TL30.60 is now a core component of the turnkey contracts we offer clients – covering everything from demolishing existing buildings, recycling as much as possible for use on site to building the new properties and handing them the keys at the end.”
The new TL30.60 is backed by the three year/3000 hour warranty that is standard for all models in the Bobcat rigid frame telehandler range. Powered by a Bobcat D34 Stage IV engine with an output of 74.5 kW (100 HP), the TL30.60 has a maximum travel speed of 40 km/h.
Ben Marshall continued: “We purchased the AGRI version of the TL30.60 telehandler, with a number of additional features providing higher comfort and productivity. The new Bobcat telehandler is fully road certified so that it can be driven quickly between sites to do different work. The boom suspension system is a really useful feature for travelling on the roads, keeping the boom stable and preventing it from bouncing over bumps.“
Described by Bobcat as a compact productivity model, the TL30.60 provides a maximum lifting capacity of 3 tonne, a maximum lift height on its 24 inch tyres of 5.9 m and a maximum horizontal reach of over 3 m.
Ben Marshall added: “The telehandler provides good lifting capacity and lifting heights. It also meets our requirement for having a relatively small footprint, being able to work and move within the confined spaces on our sites. We get the most out of the Bobcat telehandler by using it with a number of attachments including opening/closing pallet forks, a 1.4 m³ rehandling bucket and a 0.8 m³ 4-in-1 combination bucket.”
