Bobcat R-Series telehandlers feature advanced Tier 4, turbo-charged engines that deliver
powerful, high-torque performance and excellent efficiency. The turbo-charged engines achieve optimum
tractive force, giving the R-Series telehandlers impressive pushing power in their size classes. Operators
will also appreciate the engines’ reliable cold weather starting and a variety of features that make
maintenance and service more convenient.
Bobcat telehandlers are ideal for material-handling work that requires increased lift
height, reach and capacity. They offer the extended reach and superior lift capacity of a heavy-duty
telescoping boom, combined with a variety of attachment options that give these machines leading
versatility. When operators need to lift more, lift higher and reach farther, Bobcat telehandlers are fully
equipped to go the distance.
Five Operation Modes
Bobcat telehandlers feature five operation modes that deliver the precision and
versatility operators need for a wide variety of applications. Engage Eco Mode to maintain hydraulic
performance without using the engine’s full power. Maneuver across the jobsite in Smooth Drive, then switch
to Dynamic Drive to increase the machine’s responsiveness for high productivity. Control the engine speed
with Flex Drive and independently control the travel speed with Advanced Attachment Control for full
auxiliary hydraulic performance.
Bobcat R-Series telehandlers are designed to incorporate sleek and efficient styling and
great visibility. The low-profile boom sits below operator eye level to provide an open view of your
surroundings. Front, top and rear window wipers help keep your windows clear. Multiple mirrors on the
operator’s left and right provide added visibility when working in confined areas. An optional rear mirror
kit, rear view camera kit and boom work light kit also are available.
High-Comfort Cab Design
Bobcat has designed its R-Series telehandler cabs to provide even more operator comfort
and ease of operation. The telehandler cab builds upon the Bobcat tradition of operator-centric design with
high visibility, excellent ergonomics, a comfortable suspension seat, efficient HVAC system, and an
easy-to-read, automotive-style instrumentation panel that Bobcat equipment operators will find familiar
across R-Series machines. For all-day operation, the comfort built into Bobcat telehandlers is tough to
To get the most out of R-Series telehandlers, Bobcat designs and builds a large selection
of standard and hydraulic-powered attachments that can be put to work using the Bob-Tach® or power
quick-tach mounting systems.
