By Jenny LescohierApril 27, 2022
Bobcat rounds out its R-Series telehandler lineup with two new models - the TL723 and TL923 - which extend the range of capacity set by the first model in the series, the TL619 which was launched in 2021.
The largest of the two new models, 135-hp, 18,158-lb TL923 has a hydraulic system designed for faster boom speeds and heavier lifting, providing operators with smoother handling and control when loaded, and faster boom cycle times when empty.
The patented hydraulic lift system provides advanced high-flow technology to optimize lift capabilities while providing high-speed movement. With its heavy-duty drivetrain, the TL923 is designed for maximum durability for tough jobs. It has a rated capacity of 7,056 lbs at its full height of 274 in.
For comparison, the 100-hp, 16,471-lb TL723 has a rated capacity of 7,718 lbs at its full height of 274 in.
The new models join their smaller sibling, the 74-hp, 11,809-lb TL619 which has a rated capacity of 5,512 lbs at its full height of 230 in.
Both new models, as well as the TL619, are powered by a Bobcat Tier 4, turbo-charged engine the company said will provide reliable cold weather starting and a variety of features that make maintenance and service more convenient.
The units are also equipped with automatic ride control, which reduces materials spillage and enables operators to travel at faster speeds for increased productivity.
Five operation modes provide the versatility needed for a wide variety of applications.
The TL723 and TL923 incorporate a low-profile boom which sits below operator eye level to provide an open view of the surroundings. The redesigned engine basket sits lower for increased line of sight as well, while 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.
Thanks to the Power Quick-Tach mounting system on the TL723 and TL923, operators can push a button to retract pins and release to quickly secure an attachment, allowing for non-hydraulic attachment changes without ever leaving the cab. From pallet forks and buckets to grapples and snow pushers, operators can conquer a variety of tasks without the need for specialty attachments.
