Bobcat TL telehandlers raise visibility

Aaron Morby 13 years ago

Bobcat is launching a new generation of 6m and 7m telehandlers offering with a patented asymmetric cab to improve visibility across the rear of the machine.

The new TL models replace the previous T2556, T2566 and T3571 telehandlers and come with an optional 190l/min load sensing pump offers faster speeds when performing single and combined boom movements.

The TL360 and TL470 telehandlers have lift capacities of 3t and 3.5t, respectively, while at full height both machines offer a lift capacity of 3t.

The maximum forward reach of the TL360 is 3365 mm, while that of the TL470 is 4002 mm, the lift capacity at full reach being 1300 and 1500 kg, respectively.

Both are powered by the 74.5 kW Perkins 1104D-44T diesel engine and offer a standard hydraulic flow via a gear pump of 100 l/min.

Best in class visibility
Thanks to the design of a new patented asymmetric cab, the right rear corner is completely free of structural components, offering the operator unobstructed visibility across the entire rear of the machine.

The wider cab comes with rounded front windscreen offers full visibility of the attachment at all heights and boom extension and an optional all-glass door further increases visibility to the left side of the telehandler, making it easier to manoeuvre in confined areas and travel safely close to the side of buildings and structures.

Built to last
A new robust main frame and protected chassis design ensure maximum strength and protection for a long and productive life. The boom design, which features a fully integrated boom head, larger cross section and a longer boom overlap, ensures the TL models are well equipped to handle the toughest loading applications.

Maintenance and service
The new TL telehandlers are designed with minimal maintenance and service work in mind. All models feature a parallel side-mounted engine that provides easy and safe access to the main engine maintenance points. The battery is located at the front of the engine basket for easy access, while the filters are strategically placed for easy and quick replacement.
