The Bobcat stand at Hillhead 2018 will show models from the company‘s very latest compact loader, compact excavator, telehandler and attachment ranges, including the first appearance in the UK of the new Bobcat R-Series compact excavators from 2-4 tonne. Another product being shown for the first time at Hillhead is the new TL30.70 compact telehandler from Bobcat, providing a maximum lift capacity of 3 tonne and a maximum lift height of nearly 7 m.

Bobcat will also be continuing celebrations of the 60th Anniversary of the world famous Bobcat skid-steer loader at Hillhead. Over the last sixty years, Bobcat’s commitment to outstanding quality, workmanship and innovation has helped to maintain its market leadership, so that one in every two skid-steer loaders sold today is still a Bobcat machine.

The new range of five R-Series compact excavator models – the E26, E27z, E27, E34 and E35z – offers a best-in-class mix of high digging forces, superb stability and smooth controllability of working functions complemented by low weights for easy transportation. Excellent machine fit and finish plus new ground-breaking design features will make the new Bobcat R-Series unique on the market.

The new excavators introduce many state-of-the-art features and offer enhanced levels of quality and robustness. They utilize newly developed flexible machine platforms that allow different configurations of models and specifications to suit a wide range of applications and customer needs.

In addition, while taking engineering and productivity to unheralded heights, the development team for the new machines has ensured they offer greatly enhanced operator comfort and functionality and the best fit for key applications.

While keeping proven, easy to maintain mechanical injection engines, all models meet the upcoming European Stage V engine emission regulations.

The new TL30.70 compact 7 m telehandler from Bobcat is designed for a wide range of applications found in the construction and rental industries.

The TL30.70 provides an excellent compact and cost-effective alternative to larger 7 m models, especially where working spaces are tight and increased manoeuvrability is required. In addition, performance is not compromised as the TL30.70 offers an outstanding maximum reach of 4 m with a load of more than 1 tonne. At the maximum lift height, users can lift up to 2 tonne of weight, which is sufficient to place a pallet of heavy bricks in most conditions. The compactness and stability of the TL30.70 will make this machine a perfect tool for easy pick and go or for lifting materials to height on housing and commercial property developments.

The new TL30.70 is part of the Bobcat range of 12 user-friendly telehandler models, covering maximum lifting capacities between 2.6 and 4.1 tonne with lifting heights from 6 to 18 m. All the models in the range are covered by a three year/3000 hour warranty as standard.

Hillhead will also demonstrate why Bobcat is a leader in attachments with the widest portfolio on the market. Several attachments will be on display that form part of a large array available from Bobcat for use with the company’s compact loaders, compact excavators and telehandlers.
