Bobcat presented several new products for the first time at Hillhead 2022. These include the new R-Series telehandler range and the L85, the first model in the company’s compact wheel loader range.

The new T36.120 and T41.140 R-Series telehandlers, shown for the first time, are part of a choice of 12 new models with Stage V engines in the R-Series range, covering lifting heights from 6 to 18 m with maximum lifting capacities between 2.6 and 4.1 T. 

The new R-Series telehandlers offer agility on demand, with a newly configured transmission system providing enhanced smoothness to carry out the trickiest jobs at height with surgical precision. These operations are also facilitated by the combination of the Boom Positioning System, the new updated, ultra-accurate joystick, the inching function and the improved visibility from the cab. An enhanced inching pedal design is easier to use and reduces fatigue. A higher engine brake provides a shorter stop distance and increases safety on construction sites. Turtle/rabbit speeds are standard on all models and operated from the joystick. 

Bobcat R-Series telehandlers feature a new cab designed around the operator, offering a unique central control panel for optimised 360 degree ergonomics. 

With the L85 model, Bobcat now has the largest loader portfolio of any manufacturer in the world and will widen this further when the company launches the second model in the compact wheel loader range, the L75, later this year. High performance is assured by the combination of the powerful Bobcat engine and the hydraulics in the L85. This is complemented by the high stability, breakout, push and pull forces and a comprehensive selection of Bobcat attachments. 

Hillhead 2022 is billed as the UK's largest quarrying, construction and recycling exhibition.

The current environment for port terminal operations requires significant attention to the reduction of carbon emissions, and there are challenges to the environment and employee health. With Carer electric forklifts, these challenges are eliminated.
Available now, HELI's G2 Series of lithium forklift offers a compact design, great layout, strong performance and high efficiency.
