New 13-14 m Telescopic Handlers aimed at the Rental Industry
At Intermat 2015 (Paris April 20-25), the Bobcat stand 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, (shown in the image) 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.
The introduction of the new 13 and 14 m models at Intermat 2015 follows on from the launch of the new Bobcat 10, 12, 14 and 18 m lift height telescopic handlers over the last 12-13 months. Whilst they have a simpler design intended to meet the needs of the rental business, the new T35130S and T35140S telehandlers still offer many of the advantages of the new generation models. Particular attention has been paid to aspects such as the protection of sensitive parts, and intuitive and safe operating to meet the needs of rental users. The easy-to-use compact stabilizers ensure that the full capabilities of all the new telescopic handlers can be utilized in the most confined working areas and close to walls (minimal loss of reach).
As in other new generation machines, the T35130S and T35140S telehandlers offer advanced features such as the new Panoramic Cab which has a large parabolic windscreen providing panoramic visibility especially when handling loads at height. 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.
The new TL358 6 m telehandler has a very compact format, with restricted 2.10 m width and height dimensions, allowing easy access to many congested areas and small buildings. If desired, the TL358 can also be supplied with a version of the cab with more height for increased visibility for the operator.
This new model has been conceived and 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, maneuverability and true loading capacity offer a very productive alternative to smaller machines limited in performance and use.
