Bobcat ‘Waste Expert’ telescopic loader begins ops

LONDON, January 14, 2020

The UK’s first Bobcat ‘Waste Expert’ telescopic loader, purchased by H.R. Skip Hire in Sheffield has begun operations.

 The new TL38.70HF Waste Expert model was supplied by AMS Bobcat Limited, the Authorised Bobcat Dealer for Lincolnshire and East and South Yorkshire.

Barry Howe, one of the owners at H.R. Skip Hire said: “We provide top quality waste management services for residential and commercial customers across Sheffield. We decided to purchase the Bobcat telehandler to meet increasing demand particularly in the summer period at the very busy Waste Transfer Station at our headquarters in Sheffield. Providing a lifting capacity of 3.8 tonne and lift height of 7 m, coupled with its excellent specification to meet the tough conditions of the waste and recycling industry, the new TL38.70 Waste Expert machine allows us to increase productivity and throughput.”

Together with the TL35.70, TL34.65HF and TL43.80HFmodels, the TL38.70HF is one of four of Bobcat’s current productivity and high-flow telescopic loaders that are offered as Waste Expert machines. Powered by Bobcat Stage IV 100 or 130 HP engines, these new Waste Expert models offer lifting capacities from 3.4 to 4.3 tonne and lifting heights from 6.5 to 8 m.

Sturdy, efficient and easy-to-operate

Bobcat telescopic loaders are already well proven in the market as sturdy, efficient and particularly easy to operate machines and these are essential features for working in the intensive industrial applications found in the waste management and materials recycling industries. Recycling and waste management sites are tough working environments so the equipment they use needs to be up to the challenge.

As a result, the new Waste Expert machines are even more robust, with heavy-duty Dana Spicer axles and additional reinforced protection, making them the toughest on the market. They also incorporate an extra large boom head, a high tensile steel boom, boom cushioning and protected hydraulic rams under and inside the boom. Like all Bobcat telescopic loaders, the Waste Expert machines have a box welded frame to meet heavy duty cycles and offer a high ground clearance, with a bottom plate along the entire length to protect vital parts.

Visibility from the cab is also crucial, for the safety of the operator and anyone around them. In the Waste Expert machines, all-round panoramic visibility is provided by the Patented Asymmetric Cab with ROPS/FOPS Level 2 protection and a pillar-less rear window. A protective grill provides added protection for the windshield and roof of the cab.

High performance features on waste expert machines

The HF/High Flow Technology in the HF models such as the TL38.70HF offers outstanding hydraulic capabilities and performance with a class-leading 190 l/min load sensing pump and flow sharing distributor.

This allows the operator to work at significantly lower speeds if needed, consume less fuel and benefit from remarkably shorter working cycles. To prevent unnecessary oil heating and power loss, the load sensing pump supplies oil only when hydraulic power is required.

Barry Howe added: “We were particularly impressed with the visibility, compactness, boom speed, protection and ease of use of the TL38.70 Waste Expert machine. To back this up, Chris Scott, Sales Manager at AMS Bobcat, provided us with a fantastic package with extended warranty and a very attractive finance programme.”  

Unlike any other manufacturer on the market, all Bobcat telescopic loaders are covered by a three year/3000-hour warranty as standard. There is also the option of extending the warranty to five years/5000 hours. All Bobcat telescopic loaders are designed and produced in Europe to meet the demand for high comfort required by customers.

Wide choice of industrial tyres

The TL38.70HF purchased by H.R. Skip Hire has been supplied with new Camso TLH 792S 13 R24 tyres, an extreme-duty solid tyre with optimized stability, durability and comfort – delivering flat-free operation and excellent traction. Equipped with this tyre, machines have a maximum drive speed held at 15 km/h and feature reinforced heavy-duty axles.

The Camso TLH 792S 13 R24 is one of several different tyre options available for Bobcat Waste Expert telescopic loaders to meet the requirements of the different types of surfaces encountered at waste and recycling sites.

These include the Michelin 460/70R24 BIBLOAD – a steel-fortified tyre with a diamond tread pattern providing more resistance to wear and tear and a smooth ride. The Nokian 480/65R24 Tri Steeltyre, a special steel-fortified tyre ideal for waste handling and recycling facilities and for industrial use requiring enhanced puncture resistance, is another option. – TradeArabia News Service
