Bobcat has launched a new range of rigid frame telehandlers for the construction and rental industries. Backed by a three year warranty as standard, the 11 new telehandler range covers maximum lifting capacities between 2,6 and 4,1 t with lifting heights from 6 to 18 m.
The new telehandler models are designated using a new naming system showing lifting capacity/lifting height performance at a glance. These include the TL26.60 and TL30.60 compact telescopic loaders; the TL35.70, T35.105, T35.105L and T36.120SL middle lift telehandlers; the T35.130S and T35.140S rental industry-oriented telehandlers, and the T35.130SLP, T41.140SLP and T40.180SLP high lift telehandlers.
The new generation telehandlers are also available in versions for non-regulated markets such as the Middle East and Africa. These are powered by Perkins Stage IIIA/Tier 3 diesel engines.
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.
From a comfortable mechanical or air suspension seat, the operator is provided with an ergonomic array of machine controls all within easy reach and including a forward/reverse (FNR) control button on the joystick; a digital display; an adjustable steering wheel and an integrated airflow solution.
