NEW Bobcat Telehandlers

With the inclusion of the latest high performance 8 m TL43.80HF and 7 m TL30.70 telehandlers, Bobcat now offers a choice of 13 rigid frame telehandler models for applications in construction, rental, recycling, waste and general industry, covering maximum lifting capacities between 2.6 and 4.3 tonne with lifting heights from 6 to 18 m.

The new TL43.80HF increases the lift capacity in the Bobcat range to 4.3 tonne, combining this with a maximum lift height of almost 8 m. The TL43.80HF is a compact telehandler offering an impressive package, which brings together high productivity, robustness and rough terrain ability in the same machine. It provides a new solution for heavy lift handling applications found in general industry, manufacturing, building materials, warehousing, quarrying and mining. The TL43.80HF is also ideal for farming work.

The very high stability of the TL43.80HF is due to the box welded frame, the low load centre, the long wheel base and the new massive rear counterweight, allowing Bobcat to minimise the overall dimensions of the machine, resulting in a width of only 2.30 m and a length of less than 5 m from the rear to the fork face. Together with a short turning radius of just 3.71 m, this new Bobcat telehandler is a very manoeuvrable machine, a particularly useful feature when it comes to working in confined environments.

“Our new TL43.80HF has been a fantastic investment, combining excellent lifting capability with superb compactness,” says John Suggitt, who runs construction, storage and farm businesses in Driffield in East Yorkshire. “I was looking for a telehandler that could lift 4 tonne and offer a reach of 7 m, but with the TL43.80HF, I can lift a massive 4.3 tonne with a lifting height of 8 m. Being 20 cm shorter than the equivalent 7 m machines, the TL43.80HF gives me the compactness and productivity I need to work in the tight spaces on site and in my storage facilities.”

The TL30.70 provides a maximum lift capacity of 3 tonne and a maximum lift height of nearly 7 m, for a wide range of applications in construction/rental/recycling/waste/general industry. The compact width of 2.1 m in the TL30.70 ensures it provides a cost effective format in the 7 m class. The compactness and stability of the TL30.70 makes this machine a perfect tool for easy pick and go or for lifting materials to height on housing and commercial property developments.

The TL30.70 offers 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.

“At Bobcat, for over 60 years, we have been constantly innovating the market – always developing new machines for customers’ needs. The new TL43.80HF and TL30.70 continue this legacy as they complete our range of telehandlers and ensure customers can benefit from unmatched loading productivity and lift capacity. Bobcat machines are made for tough jobs, whilst still providing all the agility and versatility any application would require,” saya Olivier Traccucci, Bobcat Telehandler Senior Product Manager.

All Bobcat telehandlers are covered by a three year/3000 hour warranty as standard, with the option of extending the warranty to five years/5000 hours. The entire Bobcat range of telehandlers are designed and produced at the company’s plant in Pontchâteau in France.
