Bobcat is launching the company’s new generation R-Series telehandler range for the Middle East, Africa, Russia and CIS markets, providing a choice of 12 models powered by Stage IIIA engines.
The new telehandlers cover lifting heights from 6m to 18m with maximum lifting capacities between 2.6 and 4.1 tonne. This is the latest phase in Bobcat’s revolutionary ‘Next is Now’ programme, combining innovative product development and diversification with more intelligent, user friendly technologies that reshape how work gets done.
Commenting on the R-Series launch, Gustavo Otero, president of Doosan Bobcat EMEA, said that telehandlers are a fundamental asset of our business strategy and key pillar of our Next is Now initiative.
“Our new ground-breaking R-Series offers high performance, robust machines for maximum uptime with a focus on accurate controls and intuitive operation for tackling any job on the construction site. With these new models and the increased investment in our telehandler business, we are aiming to double the production of Bobcat telehandlers by 2025,” says Otero.
The new R-Series range of telehandlers from Bobcat comprises the models below:
Compact telescopic loaders – TL26.60, TL30.60 and TL30.70
Middle range telehandlers – TL35.70, T35.105, T35.105L and T36.120SL
High lift telehandlers – T35.130S, T35.130SLP, T35.140S, T41.140SLP and T40.180SLP
The new R-Series telehandlers offer agility on demand, with a newly configured transmission system providing enhanced smoothness to carry out the trickiest jobs at height with surgical precision. These operations are also facilitated by the combination of the Boom Positioning System, the new updated, ultra-accurate joystick, the inching function and the improved visibility from the cab.
An enhanced inching pedal design is easier to use and reduces fatigue. A higher engine brake provides a shorter stop distance and increases safety on construction sites. Turtle/rabbit speeds are standard on all models and operated from the joystick.
Bobcat R-Series telehandlers feature a new cab with unmatched ease of use, designed around the operator, offering a unique central control panel for optimised 360° ergonomics. The new high quality, contemporary interior of the cab features stand-out R-Series branding, colours and textures that clearly reflect Bobcat’s DNA.
