Bobcat introduces its TL25.60e electric telehandler concept at INTERMAT 2024, showcasing the potential for sustainable operations without compromising performance.

The machine, powered by liquid-cooled batteries, boasts zero emissions and a rated operating capacity (ROC) of 2.5 tonnes, matching its diesel-powered counterpart. Equipped with three separated electric motors to maximise efficiency, a hydrostatic transmission for enhanced performance, and maintaining the compact dimensions of the conventional Bobcat TL25.60 model, the electric concept promises low noise levels, minimal operating costs, and impressive versatility.

Alongside the TL25.60e concept, Bobcat presents a diverse range of advanced machines at INTERMAT 2024, including mini-excavators, skid-steer loaders, compact track loaders, backhoe loaders, compact wheel loaders, ground maintenance units, portable power models, and material handling equipment.

In addition to the TL25.60e, Bobcat unveils its new PG40 and PG50 generators at the Paris exhibition. Other highlights include recent product additions such as the M-Series S630 and S650 Stage V skid-steer loaders, PA12.7v compressor, hydrotreated vegetable oil (HVO) biofuel-compatible units, an updated range of rotary telehandlers for markets in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa (EMEA), and a collision warning and avoidance system.
