Bobcat, one of the world's leading manufacturers of farm and construction equipment, will be showcasing its new range of telescopic loaders at the upcoming SIMA 2017, a leading international agribusiness show, in Paris, France.
SIMA 2017 will be held from February 26 to March 2 in Paris Nord Villepinte.
At the event, Bobcat will have three telescopic loaders on display, including the new TL30.60 AGRI compact model from the company’s new range of telescopic loaders for the agricultural market, all fitted with Bobcat engines that conform with the Stage IV/Tier 4 Final emissions standard.
There are five models in this new range, with maximum lifting capacities between 2.6 and 3.8 tonne and lifting heights of between 6 and 7 m, said a statement from the company.
They are all designed and manufactured in France at the Bobcat factory in Pontchâteau (Loire Atlantique), it stated.
The Bobcat AGRI versions of these models come with a range of additional equipment, providing greater comfort and productivity to meet the majority of agricultural sector requirements.
The new range also comes with the same 3 year/3000 hour manufacturer warranty that has been offered as standard since 2016, it added.
The Bobcat D34 Stage IV/Tier 4 Final engine was specially developed and manufactured internally to handle agricultural use of telescopic loaders.
This results in optimised performance and design:
•Three power outputs using the same engine model: 75, 100 and 130 HP.
•Maximum torque (500 Nm) rapidly available (1400 rpm).
•High-pressure common-rail engine technology (1800 bar), meaning there is no need for a diesel particulate filter.
•The 100 and 130 HP versions include a catalytic system (SCR) and the AdBlue tank in the engine compartment.
•Compact engine with optimised arrangement of components for easier access and maintenance.
•Steeply-sloping front and rear body, increasing visibility for the driver.
According to Bobcat, the new TL30.60 AGRI compact model has a design that is optimised for agricultural use.
The four configurations to cope with height restrictions in agricultural buildings are 2.10 m with low cab position and 20" tyres; 2.18 m with low cab position and 24" tyres; 2.25 m with standard cab position and 20" tyres and 2.33 m with standard cab position and 24" tyres.
Bobcat said it has high ambitions in the agricultural sector.
The arrival of the Bobcat Stage IV/Tier 4 Final engine in the new range of telescopic loaders is an important step in Bobcat’s agricultural product plan, it stated.
The Bobcat Agri network has been trained to carry out maintenance and repairs and to set engine parameters. A real plus for clients when you consider the complexity of new engines, said the top construction equipment maker.
Bobcat’s product range will expand significantly in the next 12 months with the arrival of eight new models, which will reinforce and support the agricultural sector development strategy as well as activity at the dedicated factory in Pontchâteau, it added.-TradeArabia News Service
