Advanced boom design
The T40140 and T40180 telescopic handlers are now equipped with a new boom that incorporates the latest stateof-the-art construction techniques.
Simple and modern in design, the new boom is light but strong, and has a built-in counter-bow to ensure straightness when extended under full load. There is a large contact surface between the supporting pads and the boom segments, providing for a smoother telescoping action and reduced pad wear. The new boom, which is easy to maintain, also incorporates a compensator cylinder to enable self-levelling of the fork carriage.
Thanks to the design and construction of the boom, which pivots at the very rear of the machine, both telescopic models offer excellent working ranges. The T40140 can lift 4,000 kg to the maximum lifting height while the T40180 offers, on wheels as well as on stabilisers, over 17 m of lifting height.
The T40140 and T40180 telescopic handlers offer excellent visibility, which is especially useful when operating in the following situations:
- forwards to mount attachments or pick up loads
- upwards for positioning loads at maximum height
- all-round for maneuvering
- backwards for safety
T40140 TELESCOPIC HANDLERS
With a crane jib attachment, the telescopic handler can be used as a crane, but with all the advantages of the machine’s mobility and versatility. The working area of the telescopic handler is increased considerably with the crane jib. The extension jib increases lift and reach with a hook. Equipped with the extension jib, the telescopic handler can position loads in places which are difficult to access otherwise. The winch is indispensable to raise and lower loads without having to move the boom. It is fitted with a proportional control system for precise positioning of the load. Equipped with either fixed or floating pallet forks, the Bobcat telescopic handler combines material handling with rough terrain capability. Both fork systems are certified to FEM classifications.
The man platform provides flexibility and simplifies and speeds up access work, eliminating the need for scaffolding and safety nets. The platform is fast and easy to set up and can accommodate several workers at the same time. The platform, which rotates 90° right and left, can be operated as well with remote radio control. EC approved, the platform must be used on stabilisers.
Both telescopic models have two stabilisers which move independently for precise positioning. The stabilisers are fully adjustable and, whether stowed or deployed, they do not detract from the compactness of the machine.
Self-levelling and side shift
Self-levelling and side shift are possible on both wheels and stabilisers. Moreover, both operations can be done at the same time, without any loss of load capacity.
On slanted surfaces, the banking corrector can be used to level the telehandler for safe, optimum positioning of the load. The lateral tilt correction is +/- 4°.
A 4-function joystick provides precise, proportional control of any combination of movements desired.
The telescoping action of the boom sections is proportional and smooth, without loss of hydraulic power.
Aggravating Movements Arrestor
The Aggravating Movements Arrestor (AMA) is an important safety feature which provides both longitudinal and lateral stability control. When the maximum authorised capacity is approached, the red load status light comes on. At the load limit, the audio overload alarm is triggered and all hydraulic movements are blocked except for the retraction of the boom to alleviate the situation.
The new 18m Bobcat telescopic handler provide you with what matters the most… simplicity in design and ease-of-use, 100% confidence in the machine and its state-of-the-art safety systems, and class leading performance. All this ensures the T40170 model work with the best possible efficiency and productivity, while always focusing on safe operation.
The ergonomic controls ensures all vital machine controls are within arm’s reach providing an extra level of safety and operational control.
• FNR control button on the joystick
• Electronic dashboard
• Adjustable steering wheel
• Integrated airflow solution
Information at your fingertips
• Continuous frame leveling angle on LCD display – when leveling function is activated
the LCD screen will automatically shift and show the angle to ensure the operator is
fully aware of machine parameters
• Boom angle value available on display LCD screen to promote precision movements
and faster work-cycles for repetitive tasks
The new cab is designed with the operator at the forefront and aims to provide an exceptional work environment with a new level of comfort. This will help the operator stay more alert and improve the safety of the work site.
The rounded cab design features a large front window to maximize visibility of the attachment – no matter at what height or reach. A large rear window ensures rear visibility is maximized which increases spatial awareness of the operator and the accuracy of rear movements.
The optimal design of the protective roof grid provides maximum protection while also ensuring that the attachment is visible at full height.
CONFIDENCE… IN YOUR BOBCAT TELESHANDLER
Attention to details… improving Quality, Reliability & Durability.
The new T40180 model provide a new level of confidence… confidence in the machine, in its performance and safety, and in its robustness. This is achieved by following and applying the rigorous Bobcat development standards across all functions on the new models.
New generation cooling package ensures a smooth and stable control of the hydraulic oil temperature and hydraulic hose life optimization:
• Complete protection of the tilt cylinder within the boom head ensures minimum risk for damage
and increased operator safety.
• The integrated boom head design provides the reinforcement to handle heavy lifting
while also providing the added peace-of-mind when operating from a man platform.
• Safe and smooth management of overspeed to ensure maximum durability and uptime.
The load management system on the new T40140 and T40180 models ensure the safe operation at all time – no matter what the load. The display is positioned for maximum visibility for the operator and provides continuous clear information on the load management status.
PERFORMANCE – HOW TO MAKE THE GOOD EVEN BETTER
Reaching higher than ever – both on tires and on stabilizers. When we design a high-reach machine, we believe it should be a high-reach machine… without limitations! The efficient design of the T40180 provides top-class stability ensuring minimal loss of lift height and capacity when operating on tires.
Compactness equals access
Compact stabilizers – The easy-to-use compact stabilizers ensures that the full capabilities of the T40170 can be used in the most confined working areas. Three steering modes provide a solution for any movement. The short turning radius ensures that the machine is easily maneuvered into hard to reach areas on most job sites.
The unique integrated frame leveling and side shift system works independently of the main frame to provide +- 4o bankangle on tyres and up to +- 12 o angle on stabilizers. The system ensures maximum flexibility and up to a total of +-600mm side shift at full extension.
With a top speed of 30km/h the new models can quickly move between locations, cutting down on any travel times.
