New Bobcat Telescopic Handlers for the Rental Industry
At Intermat 2015, the Bobcat area will provide the stage for the global launch of several new telescopic handler models from the company.
The first of the new telehandlers is the new TL358 6 m lift height compact telehandler, which is available with two rated capacities of 2.6 or 3 tonne.
Bobcat is also showing the new 13 m and 14 m lift height T35130S and T35140S telehandlers aimed particularly at the rental industry and offering a 3.5 tonne maximum lift capacity.
New Compact Telescopic Handler
The new TL358 6 m telehandler has a very compact format, with restricted 2.10 m width and height dimensions.
This new model has been designed to meet many applications and customer needs (primarily in construction, industry and rental) where its overall compact dimensions, powerful 74.5 kW engine and hydraulics, manoeuvrability and true loading capacity offer a very productive alternative to smaller machines limited in performance and use.
New 13-14 m Telescopic Handlers aimed at the Rental Industry
The new T35130S and T35140S telehandlers have a simpler design intended to meet the needs of the rental business. The easy-to-use compact stabilisers ensure that the full capabilities of all the new telescopic handlers can be utilised in the most confined working areas and close to walls (minimal loss of reach).
As in other new generation machines, the two models also feature the new Panoramic Cab which has a large parabolic windscreen. In the cab, there is a new dashboard with digital display and intuitive controls including a joystick with integrated forward/reverse (FNR) control for improved productivity and safety.
The working envelope for the T35130S telehandler has a maximum lift height of 12.55 m and a maximum forward reach of 8.6 m. The Bobcat T35140S telehandler has a maximum lift height of 13.6 m and a maximum forward reach of 9.8 m.
Montabert Shows Innovation
Montabert will use Intermat to reinforces its position in the hydraulic drifting market with the introduction of the new Montabert HC95 drifter.
This new multipurpose drifter is available in 3 versions - one to replace a drifter already installed on a drilling machine; one for underground drilling in mining and one for surface drilling in quarries, etc.
Montabert claim that the new drifters require less maintenance than any other drifter and yet deliver increased performance and efficiency.
Other products being launched by the French company includes a patented system and entirely designed by Montabert teams to detect and prevent damage caused by vibrations.
The anti-seismic BRV is an electronic system intended to regulate the rock breaker’s power based on the vibrations it generates.
Using sensors placed in sensitive areas (railway tracks, bridges, buildings, etc), the system will lower the rock breaker’s power based on guidelines provided by the contractor. This eliminates the need to use a laboratory to measure seismic velocities and the associated costs.
