Bobcat has been busy in the R&D department

The Doosan Group’s continued investment in R&D is evident in the raft of new products that are continuously being rolled out. The latest announcement from Bobcat include two new telehandlers, three compact loaders and more attachments for mini-excavators.

The TL360 replaces both the T2556 and the T2566 models, while the TL470 replaces the T3571 and T3571HD telehandler models. The TL360 and TL470 are both 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. New family of telehandlers

Bobcat is launching a new generation of 6 and 7 m telehandlers. These models include features that are not only new to the Bobcat telehandler family, but also to the industry as a whole.

For example, a patented asymmetric cab improves visibility by offering an unobstructed view across the rear of the machine while an optional 190l/min load sensing pump offers faster speeds when performing single and combined boom movements.

The TL360 replaces both the T2556 and the T2566 models, while the TL470 replaces the T3571 and T3571HD telehandler models. The TL360 and TL470 are both 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.

They have lift capacities of 3.0 and 3.5 tonne, respectively and both machines offer a lift capacity at full height of 3.0 tonne. The maximum forward reach of the TL360 is 3365 mm, while that of the TL470 is 4002 mm, the lift capacity at full reach being 1300 and 1500 kg, respectively.

Best in class visibility

Bobcat say that the new telehandlers offer best in class visibility because of the design of a new cab, the right rear corner is completely free of structural components, offering the operator an unmatched and unobstructed line of sight across the entire rear of the machine. In addition, the lowered boom pivot point further improves view. The rounded front windscreen offers full visibility of the attachment at all heights and boom extensions. This ensures the operator has full visibility and control over the load at all times for improved productivity and safety

In order to create a more comfortable work environment for the operator, the cab has been widened.

The rounded cab design and high-resistance glass cover gives the operator an airy and spacious environment in which to work. All controls are ergonomically designed and positioned for maximum ease of use while the electronic dashboard display provides an overview of the machine’s performance.

The forward/reverse control function is placed on the joystick to make it easier and more convenient to control the machine. Driving direction is selected at the touch of a button while the operator can continue to keep a grip on both the steering wheel and the joystick. This allows for fast and easy changes between forward and reverse directions with optimum reactivity and complete, confident control of all machine functions.

The new telehandlers are designed with minimal maintenance and service work in mind. All models feature a parallel side-mounted engine that provides easy and safe access to the main engine maintenance points.
