Cat Backhoe Loaders Given an Upgrade - continued

F-Series specificationsA new sloping engine hood design combined with improved hose routings enhances operator visibility to the work tool both over the hood and either side of the loader arms. This helps with applications such as grading or grabbing where precision is important.

Service Access Reduces Downtime

A new footstep, mounted on the front fender, allows for a comfortable and safe stance when performing daily checks of regular service points. The engine side panels require no tools to remove, allowing technicians to access the engine with ease. A hinged cooling pack further improves access for cleaning and servicing and helps reduce downtime on site.

Cat Backhoe Loaders Given an Upgrade    A new hydraulic tank design with suction strainer improves machine reliability and incorporates a larger replaceable cartridge-type filter. A non-metallic 160 litre fuel tank reduces condensation and eliminates corrosion, improving reliability.

With the batteries located in the nose of the machine there is a new battery isolator providing increased security. A remote engine jump-start in the event of low battery power is also available.

Bobcat has launched the new TR38160 rotary telehandler which replaces the company’s previous TR35160 model.

The new telehandler offers a higher maximum lifting capacity of 3.8 tonne compared to 3.5 tonne and a maximum lifting height of 15.7 m and a two-section telescopic boom

In common with the rotary range, the standard configuration of the new telehandler is man platform - part of a complete line of attachments for use with the telehandler, including extension jibs, buckets and pallet forks.

The 400º rotating capability allows the machines to serve the needs of an entire site from just one position. Capable of being set up in a matter of minutes, the latest model offers stability for lifting heavy materials either vertically up to a roof or horizontally onto the edge of an excavated site, reducing construction time and costs and increasing safety and efficiency on site.
