The new telescopic loaders cover maximum lifting capacities between 2.6 and 4.3 tonne with lifting heights from 6 to 8 m. This is the latest phase in Bobcat’s revolutionary ‘Next is Now’ programme, combining innovative product development and diversification with more intelligent, more connected technologies and services that reshape how work gets done on the farm.

Commenting on the R-Series launch, Gustavo Otero, president, Doosan Bobcat EMEA, said, “Telescopic loaders are a fundamental asset of our business strategy and key pillar of our Next is Now initiative. Our new ground-breaking R-Series range offers superior machines that combine all-day comfort, maximum productivity and reliability, intelligent features, a robust build with intuitive operation and excellent 360° ergonomics. With these new models and the increased investment in our telehandler business, we are aiming to double the production of Bobcat telescopic loaders by 2025.”

The new R-Series range of telescopic loaders from Bobcat comprises the models below:

-Compact models – TL26.60, TL30.60 and TL30.70
-Large models – TL35.70, TL34.65HF, TL38.70HF and TL43.80HF

“Bobcat telescopic loaders are popular all around the world. We want to further improve our presence and accelerate our growth in all agricultural markets with this new generation of machines,” Gustavo Otero continued.

New cab offers premium workspace and operator experience

Bobcat R-Series telescopic loaders offer a premium workspace with a new cab design. The new high quality, contemporary interior of the cab features stand-out R-Series branding, colours and textures that clearly reflect Bobcat’s DNA. In the ergonomic design, all surfaces have been optimised to offer increased space and visibility. The backlit controls are within easy reach, and they are quickly identified thanks to their colour coding, which is identical day and night.

Special attention has been paid to the storage spaces. The refrigerated or heated isothermal compartment makes a full day’s work on the farm even more enjoyable. The general soundproofing of the machine is another aspect that has been worked on, reducing the noise level in the cab by a half as a result.

A new Grammer Maximo Dynamic air suspension seat with heating, featuring a suspended armrest with joystick provides an outstanding ride and high operating comfort. The new LCD colour display provides interactive and streamlined information and is available with a larger seven inch Touch screen with built-in radio and a phone page that allows the operator to dial their contacts instantly. For increased safety and easier manoeuvring, the feed from the rear camera is displayed on the display as soon as reverse gear is engaged and the right hand side electric mirror can also be quickly adjusted from the cab. As a final touch, a full LED light pack gives 360° visibility and turns night into day for the operator.

The new Bobcat multifunctional joystick enables faster operations. The FNR button located at the back of the joystick is easily controlled using the index finger, allowing the operator to use their thumb to actuate the usual boom and auxiliary functions and new smart functions such as the Auto Grab, the bucket shaking feature, the boom float and the speed shifting system.
