Bobcat debuts V619 telehandler at ConExpo
24 March 2011
Bobcat introduced a new telehandler to its line at ConExpo, the VersaHandler TTC V619.
The compact handler has a 6,613-pound rated load capacity, a 19.6-foot lifting height and comes in at 91-inches wide and 94-inches high.
The unit was designed to fill a gap in Bobcat's line, offering customers an additional 1 foot of vertical reach and an additional 1,000 pounds of lifting capacity over similar Bobcat units.
The V619 also features 360-degree visibility, a low boom pivot position and a new control function that allows users forward/reverse functions on one joystick.
The operator can select the driving direction at the touch of a button while maintaining a grip on both the steering wheel and the joystick.
The telehandler is also equipped with a semi-automatic wheel realignment system, which allows operators to choose between three different steering modes: two-wheel steer for traveling at higher speeds, four-wheel steering for maneuverability and crab steering for use in confined areas. This is a standard feature.
The V619 is powered by a 100 hp, side-mounted engine.
Production begins in July at Bobcat's French manufacturing facilities.
