The all new TL723 and TL923 telehandlers from Bobcat are designed to give operators the flexibility to accomplish a variety of demanding tasks with precision and performance. The models are part of the company’s R-Series telehandler lineup.

Featuring cabs designed for comfort, turbo-charged Tier 4 engines, and easy-to-access service points, the machines aim to combine power and nimbleness to create a lifting, stacking, backfilling and reaching machine that can tackle the toughest jobs.

The TL923 hydraulic system is outfitted with a patented hydraulic lift system that provides advanced high-flow technology to optimize lift capabilities while providing high-speed movement. Both the TL723 at 100 HP and the TL923 at 135 HP come equipped with a state-of-the-art Bobcat Tier 4, turbo-charged engine.

The units are also equipped with automatic ride control, which reduces material spillage and enables operators to travel at faster speeds.

The low-profile boom of the units is placed so that it sits below the operator’s eye level to provide an open view of the surroundings. Further enhancing visibility, the redesigned engine basket sits lower for increased line of sight.

Bobcat telehandler cabs are designed and tested to Roll-Over Protection Structure (ROPS) and Falling Object Protective Structure (FOPS) level II standards.

A single, intuitive multi-control joystick dictates the travel direction, lift and tilt functions, boom extension, and auxiliary hydraulics. It also allows operators to control several machine functions at the same time and from one control point, enabling precise control and productivity without having to remove their hand from the joystick.

The telehandlers have the Power Quick-Tach mounting system, allowing operators to to quickly secure an attachment via a push-button to retract pins and release, allowing for non-hydraulic attachment changes without ever leaving the cab.
