INTERMAT to provide launch pad for Bobcat T40180
Bobcat will use INTERMAT 2014 to launch T40180 telehandler in region
Bobcat has announced that it will use INTERMAT Middle East 2014 to introduce the T40180 telehandler to the region.
In addition, the manufacturer, which produces a wide range of compact construction equipment, will showcase the smaller T40140 telehandler, and its S130B and S510 skid-steer loaders.
The new line-up of machines – initially unveiled in 2013 – will be making their first Middle Eastern appearance on the stand of Kanoo Machinery: Bobcat’s authorised dealer in the United Arab Emirates.
The T40180 is Bobcat’s largest rigid-frame telescopic handler to date. Both this model and the T40140 offer increased maximum lift heights, improved efficiency, and additional safety features, according to the manufacturer.
The T40180 telehandler boasts a 4t maximum lift capacity and a maximum lift height of 17.52m. At this height, its lift capacity is 2.5t. At its maximum reach of 13.7m, the machine can lift 560kg. Unladen, the telehandler weighs in at 10.79t and provides a crowding force of 12,300daN.
Bobcat’s side shift system comes as standard on both the T40140 and the T40180. With a range of 0.7m in either direction, the proprietary technology negates the need for users to reposition the machine when it is not perfectly aligned with an opening.
INTERMAT Middle East 2014 will take place on 14-16 January at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre.
