Providing a maximum lift capacity of three tonnes and a maximum lift height of nearly 7m, the new TL30.70 compact telehandler from Bobcat is designed for a wide range of applications in the construction industry.
The TL30.70 provides a compact and cost-effective alternative to larger 7m models, especially where working spaces are tight and increased manoeuvrability is required. The telehandler offers a maximum reach of 4m with a load of more than one tonne.
Like the existing TL26.60 and TL30.60 telehandlers in the Bobcat range, the TL30.70 is available with two different overall machine heights, with a cab that can be mounted in two different ways – in a low position for a 2.1m height or a higher position to optimise visibility.
Bobcat has designed all of its telehandlers with a box-welded frame for enhanced rigidity and a shielded bottom plate to protect vital components. A combination of specific features maximises reliability and reduces total cost of ownership. These include: high-tensile steel, U welded shapes, the integrated boom head, new generation wear pads, large bolts and large steel inserts for increased friction coefficients.
A hydrostatic transmission allows smooth low speed travel, with the ability to go faster or work harder as required. The auto-shift transmission automatically adapts the motor torque and speed to the desired level for the job. Additionally, operators do not have to take their hands off the joystick to change gear, and the transmission is equipped with an inching function – allowing the operator more precision in low speed applications without having to use the brakes.
The main features include: an all-in-one ergonomic joystick, an automatic parking brake, a boom cushion retract, an automatic fan inverter, the Bobcat D34 diesel engine (which comes in a 55 or 75kW option), and an air suspension seat which includes longitudinal and low frequency suspensions.
The new TL30.70 is part of the Bobcat range of 12 telehandler models aimed at applications in construction, covering maximum lifting capacities between 2.6 and 4.1 tonnes with lifting heights from 6 to 18m. All the models in the range are covered by a three-year/3000-hour warranty as standard.
