A Powerful Punch in a Compact Frame

Bobcat V417 TTC

Quickly lift and carry palletized materials with a new Bobcat V417 telescopic tool carrier and pallet fork attachment.

Bobcat Company will soon introduce its fourth compact telescopic tool carrier (TTC) — the V417 — aimed at residential builders, rental companies, landscapers and agriculture producers. The 10,648-pound V417 TTC packs a powerful punch with its 75-hp turbocharged engine in a frame that is 72.5 inches wide.

The V417 complements three models already offered by Bobcat with much of the same cutting-edge technology customers have grown accustomed to in Bobcat® compact loaders and larger telescopic tool carriers.

An immediate benefit is the availability of attachments. The popular Bob-Tach™ attachment mounting system, which is standard equipment on the V417, enables customers to easily switch among various attachments in minutes.

Maximize Loader Attachments with the V417
Select Bobcat attachments for large-frame skid-steer (S220 – S330), compact track (T250 – T320) and all wheel steer loaders (A220 and A300) are approved for use with the V417, further maximizing the machine’s versatility. This is particularly helpful for customers who already own a large-frame loader and want to get the most out of a V417, such as rental companies looking to maximize utilization.

Attachments play an important part in the V417’s versatility in the residential market, giving builders a tough grading and backfilling machine coupled with 17 feet of lift height to easily lift and place building materials. Contractors can connect an angle broom to the V417 to sweep dirt and debris from driveways and streets.

A 4,800-pound load capacity matched with a pallet fork or bucket allows the V417 to quickly lift and carry materials, and load or unload trucks. This is also a popular feature for landscapers who routinely unload pallets of sod or brick.

Bob-Tach System

The popular Bob-Tach attachment mounting system comes standard on the new V417.

Additional technologies available on the V417 include a universal joystick for precise control of attachment functions, boom extension and retraction, auxiliary hydraulics and boom fl oat. For enhanced productivity, operators follow the ground contour when backfilling or grading with the boom float feature.

The machine’s hydrostatic drive provides dynamic braking and maximum torque at ground contact with an inching pedal to maintain high rpm with slow travel speeds. For attachments that require full rpm while operating at a slow speed, the creep function comes standard, providing enhanced attachment control.

A standard cab enclosure with heating, ventilation and air conditioning system enables contractors to operate in comfort. A large cab opening offers easy entrance and exit, allowing even the biggest operators to quickly access the machine.

Also, 7-pin connectors for electronic control of various attachments are standard on the enclosed cab model.

First Impressions are Positive
Comments from contractors who tried the V417 during demonstrations have been positive. Several customers were impressed with the machine’s maneuverability, able to turn quickly and easier to operate than other equipment they currently own. Customers also liked knowing the V417 uses the same diesel engine utilized in Bobcat compact loaders.
