TL43.80HF couples small dimensions with 4.3t lift capacity and almost 8m of lift height
Bobcat has launched a new telehandler in the Middle East designed for heavy lift handling applications in sectors such as general construction, quarrying and mining, manufacturing, warehousing and general industry.
With the introduction of the new TL43.80HF telehandler, Bobcat now offers a range of 15 different rigid frame telehandler models, covering maximum lifting capacities from 2.6-4.3t and maximum lifting heights of 6-18m.
Olivier Traccucci, Bobcat’s senior product manager for telehandlers, said: “At Bobcat, for over 60 years, we have been constantly innovating the market – always developing new machines for customers’ needs. The new TL43.80HF is no exception to this legacy as it completes our range of telehandlers and ensures customers can benefit from unmatched loading productivity and lift capacity. Bobcat machines are made for tough jobs, whilst still providing all the agility and versatility any application would require.”
Thanks to a high lift capacity of 4.3t and a maximum lift height of almost 8m, the TL43.80HF is a compact telehandler offering a high lift capacity. According to Bobcat, it brings together robustness, rough-terrain ability and ease of use for the operator in the same machine.
The TL43.80HFhas enhanced stability due to its box-welded frame, low load centre, long wheel base and a new massive rear counterweight, allowing Bobcat to minimise the overall dimensions of the machine. The result is a machine width of only 2.3m and a length of less than 5m from the rear to the fork face. With a short turning radius of only 3.71m, this new Bobcat telehandler is also easy to manoeuvre, which makes it easy to use in confined environments.
According to Bobcat, the rough-terrain capability of the TL43.80HF has also 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. The available tractive force is also high at up to 90% of the machine weight.
The TL43.80HF also offers several automatic functions as standard, such as boom cushioning, parking brake and reversible fan which helps to keep the cooling system clean in dusty environments. The model also shares the smart function of other Bobcat telehandlers, including a speed limiter system that controls speed regardless of the engine RPM, boom speed adjustments and an Eco mode for fuel savings of up to 15%.
Bobcat added that the TL43.80HF also provides an ideal solution for the heavy-duty, high-productivity segment of the agricultural market with its high lift capacity, lifting height and breakout force. It is available with a choice of three different AGRI packs for the farming market meeting different levels of expectation in terms of ease of use and level of comfort.
All Bobcat telehandlers are designed and produced at the company’s plant in Pontchateau, France, and are covered by a three year/3,000 hour warranty as standard, with the option of extending the warranty to five years/5,000 hours, the manufacturer added.
