Bobcat has announced a new 7.5 metre/4.3 tonne telehandler, the TL43.80HF offering a little more capacity without sacrificing the relatively compact dimension of machines in this product sector.

The new machine features a tough two section boom with a maximum forward reach of four metres, a box frame chassis, low centre of gravity, long wheel base and a large rear counterweight. Dimensions are typical for a 7.5 metre/4,000kg machine, with an overall width of 2.3 metres, and an overall length from rear bumper to fork face of five metres and a turning radius of 3.71 metres.

The machine features new heavy duty Dana Spicer axles with limited slip differentials, standard boom cushioning, a speed limiter system that controls speed regardless of the engine speed. Power comes from a Bobcat Stage IV/T4f diesel or where permitted a Perkins Sage IIIA/T3, while bobcat says that the standard Eco mode can provide fuel savings of up to 15 percent.
