Bobcat introduces compact telehandler for the Middle East and Africa

Bobcat, global provider of heavy lift handling applications for agriculture and construction markets, has launched the TL43.80HF telehandler in the Middle East and Africa region

With the TL43.80HF, Bobcat aims to provide a range of 15 different rigid frame telehandler models, covering maximum lifting capacities between 2.6 tonne and 4.3 tonne and maximum lifting heights from six to 18 metres.

The TL43.80HF focuses on ensuring that customers can benefit from highly efficient loading productivity and lift capacity. “Bobcat machines are made for tough jobs, whilst still providing all the agility and versatility any application would require,” said Olivier Traccucci, senior product manager for telehandler at Bobcat.

“Unlike any other manufacturer on the market, all Bobcat telehandlers are covered by a three year/3000 hour warranty as standard, with the option of extending the warranty to five years/5000 hours,” said the company.

High lift capacity in a compact telehandler

The TL43.80HF provides a solution for the heavy-duty, high-productivity segment of the agricultural market, taking lift capacity, lifting height and breakout force to unprecedented levels in this area, meeting different levels of farming expectation in terms of ease of use and level of comfort.

Due to a high lift capacity of 4.3 tonne and a maximum lift height of almost eight metres, the TL43.80HF is a compact telehandler offering an impressive package, which brings together robustness, rough terrain ability and ease of use for the operator in the same machine.

The very high stability of the TL43.80HF is due to the box welded frame, the low load centre, the long wheelbase and the new massive rear counterweight, allowing Bobcat to minimise the overall dimensions of the machine, resulting in a width of only 2.30 metres and a length of less than five metres from the rear to the fork face.

“The rough terrain capability of the TL43.80HF has been optimised for applications such as working and digging in piles of materials with the incorporation of new heavy-duty Dana Spicer axles with limited slip differential and the outstanding tractive force available of up to 90 per cent of the machine weight,” according to Bobcat.

In addition, the TL43.80HF provides as standard automatic functions that allow the operator to focus entirely on the work at hand, such as boom cushioning, the parking brake and the reversible fan which helps to keep the cooling system (radiator) clean in dusty environments.

The TL43.80HF further aims to optimise work on site including a speed limiter system that controls speed regardless of the engine RPM, boom speed adjustments and the Eco mode, providing a fuel saving of up to 15 per cent.
