THE new T2250 telehandler from Bobcat offers the features and benefits of a skid-steer loader, articulated wheel loader and telehandler in one machine.
It is, in effect, three machines in one and offers exceptional versatility for a wide range of applications.
The T2250 will join the current range of 7 Bobcat telehandlers distributed and supported by Clark Equipment through its Australian and NZ Bobcat dealer network.
According to James Kennedy of Clark Equipment, the new 4.5 tonne Bobcat T2250 telehandler is as compact as the largest Bobcat skid steer loader model but offers a loading performance comparable to an equivalent sized articulated loader.
Designed and tested to the level of a loader, the new Bobcat T2250 delivers all the attributes of a compact job site telehandler by combining manoeuvrability, agility and speed with a rated lift capacity of 2.2 tonne and a maximum lift height of 5.2 metres.
To meet the needs of an ever increasing range of applications, the Bobcat T2250 can be equipped with either a conventional attachment mounting system or the Bob-Tach system used on all Bobcat compact loaders.
When equipped with the Bob-Tach system the Bobcat T2250 can quickly mount and use a wide range of job-matched attachments including pallet forks, grapples, buckets, sweeper, broom, auger and many more.
Powered by the Kubota 56 kW 4-cylinder V3300-DI turbo-charged diesel engine with a governed speed of 2400 rpm, the Bobcat T2250 has an ergonomically designed cab which provides the operator with a comfortable, safe and productive working environment.
All function indicator buttons are located on the front and right-hand side of the cab, with their functions clearly identified and easily accessed from the operator’s position.
A proportional joystick ensures smooth, jolt-free extension and retraction of the boom, allowing the operator to execute several functions at the same time.
An electronically regulated hydrostatic transmission, a standard feature on all Bobcat telehandlers, enables the operator to choose between two drive modes — direct drive where the priority is given to travel speed, or soft drive where the priority is given to hydraulic power and torque.
