With extended reaching capability a Bobcat telehandler lifts more, higher

The V417 telehandler complements loaders in applications that require more capacity, lift height and reach

V417 telehandler

Lift material as high as 17 feet. Use many Bobcat loader attachments.

Some projects and day-to-day chores require a machine with a higher lift capacity, greater lift height and extended reach than a Bobcatģ compact loader. Thatís where the V417 telehandler takes over. Its exceptional rated lift capacity, coupled with its lift height and reach, can easily carry, lift and place a variety of loads.

Compact yet powerful
While it may look larger than a loader, the V417 maintains a compact size with a narrow frame and a height of just 6 feet 5 inches. These are desirable attributes for projects in limited-access areas that require a maneuverable machine. The V417 has an extendable, low-profile, two-stage boom to operate within a variable range of lift heights and reach lengths to achieve superior productivity.

Tool carrier
Unlike some telehandlers, the V417 furthers its usefulness with the familiar Bob-Tachģ attachment mounting system. Itís a true attachment tool carrier. The popular mounting system allows you to quickly change between and use more than 20 approved Bobcat loader attachments. One day it might be unloading pallets of building materials and lifting them as high as 17 feet; the next day removing dirt from a street with an angle broom.

Straightforward controls
Controls in a V417 telehandler are easy to use. The steering wheel resembles many found in pickup trucks. A single loader-style hydraulic joystick operates the boom and attachment functions. Simply press the variable-control thumb wheels on the joystick to extend the telehandlerís boom or operate the auxiliary hydraulic functions. A single shuttle lever is provided for forward and reverse direction and high or low settings. Another single lever gives you access to turn signals, the horn and high-beam road lights.

Safe operation
Bobcat offers safety videos and training courses for its compact equipment, and the V417 is no different. The VersaHandler Operator Safety Training Course kit includes detailed safety information about operating and maintaining the machine. These training resources can help employers achieve mandatory OSHA training requirements for rough terrain forklifts (Regulation 29CFR 1910.178). You can also view a 10-minute safety video ― a good resource for new users or when renting the machine.
