New range of Rigid Frame Telehandlers from Bobcat

Bobcat has introduced a new range of Rigid Frame Telehandlers.

With a strong history in the construction plant market, Bobcat has recently launched its new range of rigid frame telehandlers. Backed by a three year warranty – and manufactured at the company’s plant at Pontchâteau in France – the latest range includes a choice of 11 new telehandler models covering maximum lifting capacities between 2.6 and 4.1 tonne with lifting heights from 6 to 18m.

New engine

Providing the high performance required is the new Bobcat D34 Stage IV/Tier 4 Final compliant diesel engine. It was developed in-house specifically for use in this new generation of telehandlers. Operators will be please to discover that the D34 engine is particularly compact which, combined with a new styled low profile engine hood improves visibility on the engine side, which is important for material handling applications.

Available in two different sizes – a 55.2 kW (75 HP) engine and a 74.5 kW (100 HP) model for heavy operations – the engines share the same electronic fuel injection, High Pressure Common Rail technology, turbo-charged air management and Cooled Exhaust Gas Recirculation for lower emissions and do not require the use of Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) technology.

Driver comfort

The new generation telehandlers also incorporate several new features such as an automatic parking brake with an intuitive operation similar to those used in the automotive industry, providing greater safety and control.

As well as the automatic parking brake the advanced features include an optional air dual suspension seat, an optional auto fan inversion, a rotating beacon/back-up alarm as standard and cushion retract on the three TL models. The new optional fan system with automatic inversion is electronically controlled to adjust rotation speed depending on the temperature, which results in energy savings.

Operator comfort is also considered in the layout of the cab with an ergonomic array of machine controls designed to be within easy reach. These include a forward/reverse (FNR) control button on the joystick; a digital display; and an adjustable steering wheel.
