Bob­cat re­veals TL30.70 tele­han­dler at Ger­man expo

Earthmovers & Excavators - - Agri-technica -

Bob­cat has launched the new TL30.70 Agri tele­han­dler at the re­cent Agritech­nica show in Hanover, Ger­many.

The Bob­cat TL30.70 Agri has a max­i­mum lift ca­pac­ity of three tonnes and a lift height of just un­der 7m. The tele­han­dler mea­sures just 2.1m wide, in­clud­ing its 24-inch tyres.

Bob­cat says the TL30.70’s di­men­sions are smaller than those usu­ally seen on a 7m-lift model, mak­ing it bet­ter suited to cramped work­ing spa­ces.

At this stage it has yet to be con­firmed if the tele­han­dler will be com­ing to Aus­tralia.

As launched in Europe, the TL30.70 is avail­able in two cab con­fig­u­ra­tions – a low-height cab po­si­tion that re­sults in the TL30.70 hav­ing an over­all height of 2.1m or a higher cab po­si­tion for in­creased vis­i­bil­ity.

The new tele­han­dler is also avail­able with a choice of two dif­fer­ent ver­sions of the stan­dard Bob­cat D34 diesel en­gine.

A 55kW EU Stage IIIB is billed as the more eco­nom­i­cal op­tion, and does not re­quire se­lec­tive cat­alytic re­duc­tion (SCR) tech­nol­ogy or the use of AdBlue. The sec­ond op­tion is a 75kW EU Stage IV diesel in­tended for use in heav­ier ap­pli­ca­tions. This sec­ond en­gine model uses SCR as well as diesel ox­i­da­tion cat­a­lysts (DOC).

The TL30.50 has a heavy-duty hy­dro­static trans­mis­sion with two-speed range and a ‘shift-on-the-fly’ sys­tem that op­ti­mises speed and torque for in­di­vid­ual tasks. Bob­cat says the Hy­dro-Vario trans­mis­sion de­liv­ers a smooth 0-40km/h step­less driv­ing ex­pe­ri­ence and al­lows for a 17-tonne tow­ing ca­pac­ity when equipped with Bob­cat’s trailer brake sys­tem.
