At bauma 2022, Bobcat presented a display of new and existing equipment on the company’s stand.
Scott Park, Doosan Bobcat CEO, commented: “As the world’s leading construction machinery trade fair, bauma provides a truly global forum for Bobcat to present the most advanced innovations in our industry today, as well as the possibilities that lie on the horizon. We are excited to show how developments in Bobcat machinery and technology continue to overcome even the toughest challenges for our customers.”
Innovations and concepts
Bobcat used bauma to showcase an array of innovations from the fields of electrification, autonomy and connectivity. “At Bobcat, we never develop technology purely for the sake of bringing something new to market,” Scott Park added. “On the contrary, we only ever greenlight innovations that deliver meaningful and practical benefits for our existing products and technologies, which is exactly what our operators have come to expect. Bobcat customers are among the most inventive and skilful people around, which is why they demand world-class solutions. They are the pioneers; our mission is simply to develop tools that enable them to break new ground.” To this end, Bobcat showcased innovations/concepts including: the T7X, the S76 skid steer loader and selection of transparent display concepts.
New product launches
In addition to upcoming innovations, Bobcat’s stand featured a host of developments from the manufacturer’s line up of machinery and attachments. Models receiving their bauma debuts included the E19e, Bobcat’s new ‘GME’ ground maintenance equipment range, the TL25.60 telehandler, and the S86 and T86 compact loaders.
Bobcat also expanded its ‘R-Series’ range of telehandlers with the launch of the new ‘super compact’ TL25.60 model. Designed for simplicity of use, the TL25.60 offers stability, comfort and safe operations across a range of applications.
Of the S86 and T86, John Chattaway, loaders product manager at Bobcat, commented: “The S86 and T86 follow on from the very successful introduction of the smaller S66, T66, S76 and T76 loaders. One of the most exciting new aspects of the S86 and T86 is that both machines offer a choice of three different auxiliary flow outputs. Their standard flow configuration provides 87 l/min for load and carry applications involving low hydraulic flow attachments. Those who require extra performance can select from two additional functions that make use of our new electronic displacement control (EDC) pump: a high flow function that delivers 138l/min and an industry leading super flow function, which increases the auxiliary flow to 159 l/min.”
Doosan Portable Power
Doosan Portable Power (DPP) launched its G100 Stage V compliant generator. Providing a prime power output of 100kVA, the new model is powered by a Cummins F3.8 82kW diesel engine. Despite featuring an identical footprint to its predecessor, the Stage V G100 offers improved performance in most areas, including customer connections, autonomy, fuel consumption and noise levels. Thanks to its Cummins engine, service intervals have been extended to 1,000h and the risk of engine issues at low loads has been eliminated. The G100 is also compatible with hydro treated vegetable oil (HVO), also known as renewable or green diesel, further reducing emissions.
