A Bobcat telehandler is the smart choice for jobs requiring greater lift height, reach and capacity

Approved for use with select Bobcat loader attachments, the V417 telehandler is much more than a pick-and-place machine

V417 telehandler

Working efficiently can be difficult at times when the job requires greater lift height, reach and capacity than a traditional skid-steer or compact track loader can provide. Enter the Bobcatģ V417 telehandler, the perfect machine for lifting farther and carrying more at construction sites, agriculture and agribusiness applications, and landscaping projects.

There is a lot to like about the V417 telehandler.

Sturdy frame

The extendable, low-profile, two-stage boom has a lift height of 17 feet, 2 inches and a maximum reach of 10 feet, 4 inches. The two-section boom protects cylinders, hoses and lines. Its low-mounted position provides good all-around visibility. A light, rigid, unitized frame is strong enough to lift more than 4,400 pounds. Thatís as much as heavier machines in its class. A 6-foot-wide frame and a height of just 6 feet, 5 inches allow the machine to work in and maneuver around confined spaces. A fully enclosed cab, which is more than 36 inches wide, has heat and air conditioning, a standard suspension seat and rear and left-side windows that open.

20+ attachments

More than 20 approved Bobcat loader attachments enable the telehandler to take on a large number of jobs, ranging from loading and lifting to ground preparation. Change attachments quickly and easily with the Bob-Tachģ attachment mounting system.

Easy to operate

With a single loader-style hydraulic joystick that operates the boom and attachment functions, the V417 is designed for top production. Variable-control thumb wheels on the joystick operate the boom and auxiliary hydraulic functions. One shuttle lever controls forward and reverse and high or low settings. Use the other lever to operate turn signals, horn and high-beam road lights. The steering wheel is similar to what is found in many pickup trucks.

Two methods of transmission operation are controlled by a simple mode switch. One is for applications needing higher wheel torque, such as pushing or loading a truck. The other is for normal working conditions. Three steering modes provide job-matched options: all-wheel steer for tight turning, front-wheel steer for road travel (15 mph top speed) and crab-steer for positioning loads from side to side.

The V417 is a high-performance machine thatís built to handle the toughest projects with ease. Itís right at home when the job calls for loading, digging, grading, backfilling, handling and placing materials, moving bales, sweeping, working around waste transfer stations, mulching and removing snow. Itís also a valuable addition to any rental fleet.
