With the launch of the TL43.80HF telehandler, Bobcat is providing a new solution for heavy lift handling applications found in general industry, manufacturing, building materials, warehousing, quarrying and mining in the Middle East and Africa.
With the new TL43.80HF, Bobcat now offers a range of 15 different rigid frame telehandler models, covering maximum lifting capacities between 2,6 and 4,3 t and maximum lifting heights from 6 to 18 m.
“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,” says Olivier Traccucci, Bobcat Telehandler senior product manager.
Thanks to a high lift capacity of 4,3 t and a maximum lift height of almost 8 m, the TL43.80HF is a compact telehandler brings together robustness, rough terrain ability and ease of use for the operator in the same machine.
The high stability of the TL43.80HF is due to the box welded frame, the low load centre, the long wheel base and the new rear counterweight, allowing Bobcat to minimise the overall dimensions of the machine, resulting in a width of only 2,3 m and a length of less than 5 m from the rear to the fork face.
Together with a short turning radius of just 3,71 m, the new Bobcat telehandler is a highly manoeuvrable machine, a particularly useful feature when it comes to working in confined environments.
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 and the outstanding tractive force available of up to 90% of the machine weight.
In addition, the TL43.80HF offers 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.
