McNae Showcases Bobcat Telehandlers and Compactors at ScotPlant 2022

John H McNae Ltd, the Authorised Dealer for Bobcat in the Central Belt of Scotland, will present a range of Bobcat equipment including the new R-Series TL30.70 telehandler and the new Bobcat light compaction range at the ScotPlant 2022 Exhibition at the Royal Highland Centre in Edinburgh from 22-23 April 2022. The stand display will be completed with a selection of Bobcat mini-excavators including the popular E10z, E17 and E27 models.

The TL30.70 has a maximum lift capacity of 3 tonne and maximum lift height of 7 m. It is part of the new generation R-Series telehandler range from Bobcat, one of a choice of 12 models in the range with Stage V engines, covering lifting heights from 6 to 18 m with maximum lifting capacities between 2.6 and 4.1 tonne.

New Cab for Remarkable Operator Experience

In common with all Bobcat R-Series telehandlers, the TL30.70 features a new cab with unmatched ease of use, designed around the operator, offering a unique central control panel for optimized 360° ergonomics. In the ergonomic design, all surfaces have been optimised to offer increased space and visibility. It is based around a new 5-inch LCD display providing interactive and streamlined information, including the feed from the rear camera for easier and more precise operation.

R-Series telehandlers offer agility on demand, with a newly configured transmission system providing enhanced smoothness to carry out the trickiest jobs at height with surgical precision. These operations are also facilitated by the combination of the Boom Positioning System, the new updated, ultra-accurate joystick, the inching function and improved visibility from the cab.

Standard 3-Year Warranty Included

As with all new Bobcat telehandlers, the TL30.70 telehandler offers customers peace of mind with a unique 3-year warranty (or 3000 hours) on each machine as standard from the factory, extendable as an option to 5 years and 5000 hours. Bobcat is the only manufacturer to provide a 3-year warranty as standard, allowing customers to focus entirely on growing their business without worrying about their machines.

New Light Compaction Range

The new light compaction range from Bobcat is designed to meet work requirements on almost any compaction job site. Machine specifications include state of the art technologies that allow maximum performance, while not compromising on comfort, safety and simplicity of use. Altogether, the Bobcat light compaction range comprises seven different product families and will ultimately offer 37 models, from vibratory rammers weighing 29 kg up to 2.6 tonne tandem rollers.

The Bobcat Light Compaction Range includes:

  • Vibratory rammers
  • Vibratory forward plates
  • Reversible vibratory plates
  • Hydrostatic plates
  • Walk behind rollers
  • Trench rollers
  • Tandem rollers

Light compaction machines can be used in a wide range of applications, such as:

  • Construction – Light compactors increase soil strength, improve stability and load bearing capacity by removing voids and interlocking soil particles.
  •  Roadwork – Compacting asphalt and base materials improves their capacity to withstand heavy traffic and improves their general durability.
  • Landscaping – Rammers and forward plates are used for gardening and other landscaping applications, as their compact size and low weight ensures they are easy to move between job sites.
