Bobcat has launched a new range of rotary telehandlers, covering lifting heights from 18 to 39m and with lifting capacities from five to eight tonnes. 

The new machines are Deutz engine powered, while the higher lift models from 27 to 39m powered by Volvo engines. 

Among the key aspects of the new line of rotary telehandlers is the patented panoramic cab, which offers optimal visibility and a wide range of features, including:

  • Fully enclosed and pressurised environment for the operator
  • 100% air filtration
  • ROPS and FOPS certification
  • Air conditioning
  • No cladding in the front
  • An easily adjustable steering column
  • A comfortable, fully adjustable seat

All Bobcat rotary telehandlers are equipped with a new dashboard with a 7 or 12 inch display offering a choice of three different views - real-time load chart, a new boom dynamic load chart showing only the area in which the operator can move safely with a load and a 360° view from above.

Accessibility to the cab has been improved, thanks to the placement and modification of the access ladder. The ladder is also equipped with two handles and is located in a more central position in front of the cab. An additional ladder, located at the rear, is particularly useful for service operations on the back of the boom.

A new button has also been introduced on the joystick, which allows operators to align the turret with the access ladders positioned on the right and left hand sides of the machine.

With the core models available in the new rotary telehandler range, Bobcat offers a choice of solutions for four key lifting height segments, namely: 18 m, 21-22 m, 25-26 m and 30-32 m, with a choice in terms of machine capacities at these heights. Bobcat also offers additional models in these segments each with an additional 1 tonne in lift capacity.
