New Bobcat Super Compact Telehandler for Agriculture

Posted: 19 April 2023

Bobcat has launched the new TL25.60 AGRI Super Compact telehandler. This new addition extends Bobcat’s telehandler range for the agricultural market to eight models, offering rated capacities up to 4.3 tonne and lifting heights up to 7.5 m. The TL25.60 AGRI is powered by the D24 Stage V diesel engine providing 56 kW (75 HP) of power, has a rated operating capacity of 2500 kg, maximum lift height of 5.9 m and a fully extended reach of 3.3 m.

Florian Hilbert, Product Manager Telehandlers at Bobcat EMEA, said: "The innovative design of the TL25.60 AGRI is based on intensive analysis of customer and application requirements in agriculture. This ensures the new telehandler is simple to use, offers excellent stability and provides optimum comfort and productivity in any type of work on the farm.” 

Superior Comfort and Performance

The arrival of the new TL25.60 AGRI follows on from the successful launch of its counterpart model for construction, rental and associated industries in late 2022. Like the construction machine, the TL25.60 AGRI is compact and agile for optimum manoeuvrability on the farm. Whilst there are similarities, the TL25.60 AGRI offers many more features specifically for agricultural customers, including:

  • Front auxiliary with hydraulic flow of 80l/min
  • Boom cushion retract as standard 
  • Three AGRI finishing levels to choose from 
  • Large variety of tyre choice
  • Air suspended seat
  • Cab+ AGRI option containing all required AGRI features within the cab
  • Electric mirror with de-icing
  • Hand throttle

The TL25.60 AGRI offers superior comfort, with a roomy cab which offers easy stepless access via the large entry door with ergonomic handholds. Inside the cab there is a tilting steering column as standard and telescopic as an option, which can be adjusted for the convenience of the operator. 

Florian Hilbert added: “The TL25.60's cab is identical to that of some of Bobcat's larger models, making it the most spacious compact telehandler on the market today. The intuitive operating system on the TL25.60 AGRI allows operators to quickly master the controls and joystick layout - ideal for both experienced and novice operators. The machine also provides excellent visibility and ease of use, so that all workers can use the machine on the farm.”

Innovative Controls and Functions 

Users of the TL25.60 AGRI have industry-leading expertise at their fingertips, enhancing their work with the innovative smart technology found throughout the machine. This includes unique Bobcat features such as maximum lifting angle and return-to-ground functions, boom suspension, boom float and the automatic fan inverter system on the machine.

This is combined with the high productivity provided by the impressive loading capacity and fast cycle times thanks to the flow-sharing function as standard on the TL25.60 AGRI. The smooth hydrostatic transmission and flow sharing ensure precise control at any height. 

Best Cycle Times on the Market

Using the same main valve as the larger models from the Bobcat range, the TL25.60 AGRI has the best cycle times on the market. The high pushing and breakout force on the TL25.60 AGRI give operators all the power they need with dependable torque and hydraulics, supported by the robust build of this machine.

Straightforward Maintenance Requirements

The high performance of the TL25.60 AGRI is matched by the maximum uptime that results from the straightforward maintenance requirements, including direct access to all major components around the engine. In addition, the large bonnet and no-tool design of the maintenance cover allow operators to easily perform regular maintenance tasks themselves.

The robust build and high protection for machine components provided by the box-welded frame is part of the high standard for quality and toughness found on all Bobcat machines including the TL25.60 AGRI. The protected critical components mean the machine can be operated in even the most demanding applications.

The versatility built into the design of the TL25.60 AGRI allows the operator to choose from a wide range of available attachments and different carriage systems. The Bob-Tach carriage allows users to connect even the most advanced attachments – which handle everything that can be thrown at them – and tackle any jobs on the farm with ease.

Florian Hilbert commented: “The TL25.60 AGRI is a machine that can be trusted in any situation on any farm. The superior stability, balance and visibility offers unrivalled peace of mind. The machine enables operators to work day and night, aided by the large mirrors, rear-view camera and powerful LED lights.”
