A new range of rigid frame telehandlers has been launched by Bobcat for the construction and rental industries.

Manufactured at the company’s plant at Pontchâteau in France, Bobcat now offers a choice of 11 new telehandler models covering maximum lifting capacities between 2.6 tonnes and 4.1 tonnes, with lifting heights from 6m to 18 m.

For markets such as Europe, where emissions are highly regulated, the range has the new Bobcat D34 Stage IV/Tier 4 Final compliant diesel engine, developed in-house.

The models also have a new naming system for capacity and lifting height: TL26.60 and TL30.60 compact telescopic loaders; TL35.70, T35.105, T35.105L and T36.120SL iddle lift telehandlers; T35.130S and T35.140S rental industry-oriented telehandlers; and T35.130SLP, T41.140SLP and T40.180SLP high lift telehandlers

The compact D34 engine is combined with a new low profile engine hood to improve visibility on the engine side, which is important for material handling applications. It is available in two different sizes: A 55.2 kW model, designed for cost-efficient operation, without Diesel Engine Fluid (DEF) injection and involving only a Diesel Oxidation Catalyst (DOC) as an after-treatment technology. The 74.5 kW model is for heavy operations, with DOC and Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) with DEF injection after-treatment technologies.

The new generation telehandlers incorporate other new features such as an automatic parking brake with an intuitive operation similar to those used in the automotive industry.

Already available as standard on the TL26.60, TL30.60 and TL35.70 models covering lifting heights up to 7m, Bobcat’s ECO fuel saving mode is also now incorporated on the larger models with lifting heights up to 10m and above. The new ECO system has a press-button start on the dashboard and maintains optimum hydraulic performance without using the engine’s full power.

An optional air dual suspension seat and auto fan inversion are also available, as is 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 of temperatures, which results in energy savings.

Specifically; the TL26.60 and TL30.60, have two different machine heights as the cab can be mounted in two different ways: at low position for 2.1m height, or higher position to optimise visibility.

On the TL35.70, replacing the TL470, there is an improved load chart providing an additional 500kg (3500 kg) of lifting capacity at the maximum lifting height 6.97m.

Still offered as standard on all machine is the SMS (Speed Management System), SHS (Smart Handling System), AFM (Auxiliary Flow Management) and FCS (Fast Connect System).
