Telescopic loaders for agriculture

22 September, 2016

Backed by a three-year warranty as standard, a new range of telescopic loaders has been launched by Bobcat for the agricultural industry.

Manufactured at the company’s plant at Pontchâteau (Loire Atlantique) in France, Bobcat now offers a choice of five new telescopic loader models for the farming market covering maximum lifting capacities between 2.6 and 3.8 t with lifting heights from 6 to 7 m. They are designated using a new naming system showing lifting capacity/lifting height performance at a glance:

- TL26.60 and TL30.60 Compact productivity models.

- TL35.70, TL34.65HF and TL38.70HF Productivity and High Flow models (TL34.65HF is not sold in countries with lesser regulated emission standards).

The majority of the models are also available as AGRI versions, with a number of additional features providing higher comfort and productivity to meet most farming requirements.

For markets in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA), where emissions are highly regulated, high performance is ensured by a Bobcat D34 Stage IV/Tier 4 final compliant diesel engine developed in-house.

For lesser regulated markets, the new generation telescopic loaders are available with Perkins 1104D-44TA or 1104D-E44TA Stage IIIA/Tier 3 diesel engines.

D34 Stage IV engine

The Bobcat D34 Stage IV engine has been developed and manufactured internally specifically for use in the company’s new generation Stage IV telescopic loaders for highly regulated markets in EMEA. This has resulted in optimised performance throughout the range. The compactness of the D34 engine and a new styled low profile engine hood improve visibility on the engine side.

The Stage IV engine offers enhanced performance and is available in three different sizes:

- A 55.2 kW (75 HP)/325 Nm engine model offering cost efficient operation, without Diesel Engine Fluid (DEF) injection and involving only a Diesel Oxidation Catalyst (DOC) as an after-treatment technology.

- A 74.5 kW (100 HP)/430 Nm engine model for heavy operations, with DOC and Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) with DEF injection after-treatment technologies.

- A 97 kW (130 HP)/500 Nm unit utilising DOC and SCR with DEF injection after-treatment technologies, for tough applications requiring more power.

All of these engines share the same electronic fuel injection, High Pressure Common Rail technology, turbo-charged air management and Cooled Exhaust Gas Recirculation for lower emissions and do not require the use of Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) technology.

New, improved performance TL34.65HF

The TL34.65HF is a new high productivity model providing a maximum lift capacity of 3.4 tonne at the maximum lift height of 6.42 m.

HF/High Flow Technology, also available on the TL38.70HF model, offers outstanding hydraulic capabilities and performance with a class-leading 190 l/min load sensing pump (150 l/min at the auxiliary line) and flow sharing distributor.

This allows the operator to work at significantly lower speeds, consume less fuel and benefit from remarkably shorter working cycles. To prevent unnecessary oil heating and power loss, the load sensing pump supplies oil only when hydraulic power is required. If required, the full oil volume is available immediately, thanks to the Quick start system. Other performance aspects of the new range include:
