Bobcat launches compact telehandler for heavy lift handling
The TL43.80HF has a lift capacity of 4.3 tonne and a maximum lift height of almost 8 m
Bobcat has launched the TL43.80HF telehandler in the Middle East and Africa, for heavy lift handling applications in the manufacturing, building materials, warehousing, quarrying and mining industries.
The TL43.80HF, which has a lift capacity of 4.3 tonne and a maximum lift height of almost 8 m, expands Bobcat's telehandler offerings to fifteen rigid frame telehandler models, covering maximum lifting capacities between 2.6 and 4.3 tonne and maximum lifting heights from 6 to 18m.
The 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 minimize the overall dimensions of the machine, resulting in a width of 2.30 m and a length of less than 5 m from the rear to the fork face.
A short turning radius of 3.71 m makes the telehandler a very manoeuvrable machine for working in confined environments.
The rough terrain capability of the TL43.80HF has also been optimised for applications such as working and digging in piles of materials with the incorporation of new heavy duty Dana Spicer axles with limited slip differential and the outstanding tractive force available of up to 90% of the machine weight.
In addition, the TL43.80HF offers as standard automatic functions that allow the operator to focus entirely on the work at hand, such as boom cushioning, the parking brake and the reversible fan which helps to keep the cooling system (radiator) clean in dusty environments.
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. All Bobcat telehandlers are designed and produced at the company’s plant in Pontchâteau, France.
