Bobcat introduces ‘tough and agile’ telescopic loaders

Material handler manufacturer Bobcat has created four new models based on the TL43.80HF telescopic loader. The prototype was revealed at the Bauma expo in Germany earlier this year.

The new vehicles offer lifting capacities between 3.4 to 4.3 tonnes and lifting heights ranging from 6.5 to 8 meters. All units are powered by 74.5 or 97kW (100 or 130hp) engines.

The new machines also feature heavy-duty Dana Spicer axles and additional reinforced protection. Other features include an extra large boom head, a high tensile steel boom, boom cushioning and protected hydraulic rams under and inside the boom.

Besides, all-round panoramic visibility for the operator is provided by the patented asymmetric cab with ROPS/FOPS Level 2 protection and a pillar-less rear window.

Unmatched loading productivity

‘Like all our machines, the new Waste Expert telescopic loaders are made for the hardest jobs, whilst still providing all the agility and versatility any application would require,’ says Olivier Traccucci, Bobcat Telehandler senior product manager. He adds: ‘In the HF models, the very robust machine build is combined with high flow capability for unmatched loading productivity and lift capacity.’

Tracucci concludes: ‘With the toughest design on the market, impressive bucket breakout forces, efficient cooling systems, a low center of gravity and a long wheel base to enhance stability and lift capacity, our new Waste Expert Telescopic Loaders are ideally suited for the waste and recycling markets.’
