Company introduces 11 new Stage V telehandlers and two new Stage V compact track loaders
BOBCAT are launching new Stage V compliant telehandlers alongside Stage V versions of the company’s M-Series T450 and T590 compact track loaders, both of which include several new features and options.
The new machines are powered by proven Bobcat D34 and D24 Stage V high-torque diesel engines, designed specifically for Bobcat compact equipment. Both of the new Stage V engines are based on well-proven designs installed in thousands of Bobcat machines worldwide.
The new D34 Stage V engine allows customers to operate their telehandlers in emission-regulated zones, thanks to the new DPF after-treatment system. In addition, the engine does not use selective catalytic reduction (SCR), so there is no need for AdBlue.
A key aspect of the D34 Stage V engine is the new autonomous after-treatment system – DPF regeneration is performed automatically, with no impact on performance – which ensures peace of mind for the operator, allowing them to concentrate solely on the work at hand.
‘The 75hp engine is mainly used by construction and rental companies in the UK, Italy and Benelux owing to its competitive price and simplicity, whilst still providing plenty of power to tackle all applications on the job site,’ said Quentin D’Hérouël, product manager for telehandlers at Doosan Bobcat.
The D34 Stage V 56kW (75hp) engine in the new telehandlers provides an average 7% lower fuel consumption and offers a 14% higher torque than the previous Stage IV engine, for more power at lower rev/min and faster recovery.
There is a choice of 11 different Bobcat telehandler models with the 56kW Stage V engine, covering maximum lifting capacities between 2.6 and 4.1 tonnes with lifting heights from 6 to 18 m:
- The TL26.60, TL30.60 and TL30.70 compact telescopic loaders
- The T35.105, T35.105L and T36.120SL middle-lift telehandlers
- The T35.130S and T35.140S rental industry-oriented telehandlers
- The T35.130SLP, T41.140SLP and T40.180SLP high-lift telehandlers.
The Stage V telehandlers feature a new engine hood with a steeper profile that increases visibility and reduces blind spots by 15% on the right-hand side of the machines. Access to the engine compartment has also been improved, allowing easier maintenance.
‘The new 56kW telehandlers will be followed by further Stage V models powered by 74.5kW (100hp) and 97kW (130hp) versions of the D34 Stage V engine, which will be launched in 2021. This will be a completely new generation of telescopics with dramatic user experience and low cost of ownership improvement,’ added Mr D’Hérouël.
All Bobcat telehandlers are covered by a three-year/3,000-hour warranty as standard from the factory, with the option of extending the warranty to five years/6,000 hours. The entire Bobcat range of telehandlers is designed and produced at the company’s plant in Pontchâteau, in France.
New M-Series compact track loaders
Meanwhile, the new T450 and T590 Stage V compact track loaders follow on from the recently launched Bobcat M-Series S450, S510 and S530 Stage V skid-steer loaders.
All new M-Series loaders provide operators with increased performance, enhanced comfort and optimized maintenance requirements. They are also among the first models in the Bobcat compact equipment range in Europe to feature the company’s new machine styling scheme, which includes 3D decals for the first time.
‘Like the S450, S510 and S530 models, skilful design work by our engineering team has ensured that even with the Bobcat Stage V engine incorporated, the same small dimensions and lift arm patterns are maintained on the new versions of the T450 and T590 compact track loaders,’ said Jiri Karmazin, product manager for loaders at Doosan Bobcat. ‘This ensures a truly compact size and low weight, so they can work and manoeuvre easily in tight spaces and can be easily transported.’
Thanks to the new Bobcat Stage V engine, noise levels have been reduced for both bystanders and operators and vibrations have been lowered significantly too, to further increase operator comfort.
Moreover, the first engine oil service interval has been extended to 500 hours, and improved fuel filtration means less frequent filter replacements and reduced running costs. Additionally, new DPF after-treatment technology works automatically without any interaction during normal operation.
The new Bobcat D24 Engine – with Bosch fuel-injection system – improves overall machine performance while meeting the strictest Stage V emissions regulations. Moreover, the engine power-to-weight ratio has been optimized in both the T450 and T590 loaders.
Also, the new Stage V loaders now feature the previously optional Deluxe control panel as standard, offering a choice of different languages and telematics to protect the machines and to monitor their performance. The Deluxe panel also reduces the risk of misuse thanks to the keyless function.
