Bobcat telehandler premiere
By Euan Youdale12 September 2018
The new high performance Bobcat TL43.80HF telehandler is having its world premiere at this year’s GaLaBau exhibtion in Germany. Thanks to a high lift capacity of 4.3 tonnes and a maximum lift height of almost 8m, the TL43.80HF is compact telehandler with a width of 2.30m and a length of less than 5m from the rear to the fork face.
With the new TL43.80HF, Bobcat now offers a range of 15 rigid frame telehandler models, covering maximum lifting capacities between 2.6 and 4.3 tonnes and maximum lifting heights from 6 to 18 m. The TL43.80HF is designed for heavy lift applications found in general industry, manufacturing, building materials, warehousing, quarrying and mining.
The model is also suitable for the heavy-duty, high-productivity segment of the agricultural market, thanks to its lift capacity, lifting height and breakout force. It is available with a choice of three different AGRI packs for the farming market meeting different levels of expectation in terms of ease of use and level of comfort.
First Time in Germany
Bobcat will also be displaying its new R-Series mini-excavators for the first time in Germany at GaLaBau. Comprising five models (E26, E27z, E27, E34 and E35z) from 2-4 tonne, the new R-Series product line offers high digging forces, high stability and easy manoeuvrability in this category. In addition, the lower weight of the machines makes transportation easier.
Miroslav Konas, product line manager for Bobcat Mini-Excavators in Europe, the Middle East and Africa, commented, “Together with the other models in the R-Series range, we developed the E27 mini-excavator specifically with German customers in mind, offering a unique combination of superior stability and class-leading digging force.”
The E27, E27z and E35z will be on display on the Bobcat stand in Hall 07, with the E34 working in the outdoor demo area at GaLaBau.
