Bobcat has expanded its R-Series range of products with the launch of the new Super Compact TL25.60 telehandler and the new S86 and T86 compact loaders.
As the smallest machine in the range, the new TL25.60 brings the number of rigid frame telehandlers from Bobcat for construction, rental and general handling to 11 models.
The new S86 R-Series Skid-Steer Loader and T86 R-Series Compact Track Loader replace the previous 700 and 800 M-Series loaders and complete the current R-Series loader line-up.
Mike Vought, vice president product management at Doosan Bobcat EMEA, says: “Because job sites are becoming ever tighter on space, telehandlers must also become more compact and agile. We have designed the new Bobcat TL25.60 to not only meet this demand but to be the best compact machine on the market. The S86 and T86 are also exceptional machines - the most powerful compact loaders we have ever built, providing even more versatility as both tool carriers and workhorses.”
The new TL25.60 is powered by a 75 HP Bobcat Stage V engine. The machine has a rated operating capacity of 2,500 kg, offering a maximum lift height of 5.91 m and a maximum reach of 3.31 m.
Meanwhile, both the Bobcat S86 and T86 use a Stage V-compliant 3.4 l Bobcat engine – producing 78 kW (105 HP) at 2,600 RPM. Just like all R-Series loaders, the engine is mounted in-line with direct drive, which improves the cooling capacity of the engine and hydraulic components. This change increases reliability in high-intensity applications such as road construction and forestry work.
