Bobcat heading to Verona for SaMoTer 2023
Bobcat Is exhibiting at SaMoTer 2023, the most important exhibition in Italy for the construction machinery sector, presenting several recently launched product lines and models for the first time in the country.
SaMoTer provides an ideal platform to show visitors the new Ground Maintenance Equipment (GME) range from Bobcat, which includes compact tractors, small articulated loaders (SAL), mini track loaders, mowers and turf equipment.
Building on the company’s success in the North American market, Bobcat aims to rank within the top three GME players in Europe and to double growth in the global GME market by 2027.
Compact Tractors Provide Versatility for Countless Applications
All Bobcat GME models are robust and versatile, providing excellent productivity and great comfort. Representing the range, a cabbed version of the new CT2535 compact tractor will be on display on the Bobcat stand at SaMoTer for the first time in the Italian market.
Bobcat is offering three Compact Tractor platforms – the 1000, 2000 and 4000 series – which feature nine new models from 25 to 58 HP designed to meet the different needs of customers in the EMEA region. Each model varies in size and engine horsepower, with the option to choose between manual and hydrostatic transmission, and between open canopies (ROPS) and cabs.
Bobcat’s proven Bob-Tach system comes as standard on all machines with the front-end loader option, enabling users to switch effortlessly between different Bobcat attachments, to carry out multiple jobs easily, delivering value and versatility for customers’ businesses.
Francesca Biagini, Italy, Greece & Iberia Attachments – GME Sales Manager, comments: “These machines are versatile tool carriers thanks to their total compatibility with a wide range of Bobcat attachments that allow users to maximize productivity in any application such as gardening, agriculture, construction, roads and snow clearing, to name a few.”
New Bobcat TL25.60 Super Compact Telehandler
Another star at SaMoTer 2023 is the super compact TL25.60 telehandler, launched at Bauma 2022 and being presented for the first time at SaMoTer.
Ideal for the construction, rental and general handling sectors, the TL25.60 is the eleventh fixed-frame telehandler model in the latest R-Series range from Bobcat and is the smallest machine in the line.
Designed for maximum ease of use, the TL25.60 offers excellent stability, optimal comfort and safe operation in a wide range of applications. Equipped with a 75 HP Bobcat Stage V engine, the machine boasts a rated operating capacity of 2500 kg and a maximum lift height of 5.9 m.
Despite its super-compact dimensions, the TL25.60’s cab is identical to that in the larger Bobcat R-series models, making it the most spacious compact telehandler on the market today.
New E19e Electric Mini-Excavator
The Bobcat stand will offer the opportunity to see a selection of the company’s most popular mini-excavators, including the E20z, E27z and E55z/E60 models, as well as the first appearance of the new 2 tonne E19e electric mini-excavator, introduced in October 2022, part of the company’s ever-expanding range of electrified machines.
The E19e offers zero emissions, low noise, reduced vibration and the same excellent performance as the popular diesel-powered E19 model.
This machine will build on the success of the E10e, the world’s first electric 1 tonne mini-excavator from Bobcat, demonstrating that the company is a true pioneer in the field of battery-powered machines and will continue to invest in research and development to accelerate this important trend.
The E19e is also extremely versatile, with a wide range of compatible attachments available. For example, Bobcat’s hydraulic grapple is the only one on the market for this size category.
