Bobcat launches new generation telehandlers
Company introduces industry's first asymmetric cabs
Bobcat has hailed its new generation of 6m and 7m telehandlers as featuring some industry firsts including asymmetric cabs.
The company said its new models offer a range of improvements and several features, benefits and options that are: “completely new not only to the Bobcat telehandler family, but also to the industry as a whole”.
For example, Bobcat claims its symmetric cab take “visibility to a new level” by offering an unobstructed view across the rear of the machine. It also said an optional 190l/min load sensing pump can offer “faster speeds when performing single and combined boom movements”.
With one eye on shortening its own costs by introducing some flexibility into its range, Bobcat says the TL360 replaces both the T2556 and the T2566 models, while the TL470 replaces the T3571 and T3571HD telehandler models. Both machines are powered by the 74.5 kW Perkins 1104D-44T diesel engine and offer a standard hydraulic flow via a gear pump of 100 l/min, said Bobcat.
