Bobcat paves way for smarter, more sustainable and connected future with innovative INTERMAT 2024 equipment lineup

Posted on: 24 April 2024

Bobcat is showing the international construction community how it is accelerating towards a smarter, more sustainable and connected future with its innovative lineup for INTERMAT 2024. A diverse array of Bobcat construction, ground maintenance and material handling equipment is being displayed at the exhibition, which is being held at Paris-Nord Villepinte in France until 27 April.

Bobcat is using INTERMAT 2024 as a platform to debut several cutting-edge models, including its TL25.60e electric telehandler concept. It is also showcasing a range of other recently introduced product additions and innovations, including its M-Series S630 and S650 skid-steer loaders, PA12.7v compressor, hydrotreated vegetable oil (HVO) biofuel-compatible units, its updated range of rotary telehandlers for markets in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA), and collision warning and avoidance system.

The extensive exhibition lineup has been curated with a focus on safe, sustainable and cost-effective operations, with the aim of demonstrating how Bobcat innovations can help users accomplish more. Other product lines that are being displayed on the manufacturer's INTERMAT 2024 stand (Hall 5b | Stand E127) include mini-excavators, skid-steer loaders, compact track loaders, backhoe loaders, compact wheel loaders, ground maintenance units, portable power models, material handling equipment and more.

Jan Moravec, Vice President of Product, Bobcat EMEA, said: “In line with Bobcat’s long-standing commitment to sustainable development, our team is continuing to develop products, attachments and services that exceed our customers’ expectations. The equipment we are showcasing at INTERMAT 2024 reflects our dedication to innovation, sustainability and customer-centricity, demonstrating that it is possible to shape a greener and more efficient future without compromising performance or productivity.”

Shining a spotlight on innovation

INTERMAT 2024 is providing the global launchpad for Bobcat’s TL25.60e electric telehandler concept. Powered by liquid-cooled batteries that can operate in a range of weather conditions, the zero-emission machine has a rated operating capacity (ROC) of 2.5 tonne, equal to that of the popular diesel-powered TL25.60 model.

With three separated electric motors designed to maximize efficiency, a hydrostatic transmission to boost performance, a top speed of 25 km/h and the same dimensions as its conventional counterpart, the TL25.60e also delivers low noise levels, minimal operating costs and impressive versatility, proving that industry-leading performance and environmentally friendly operations can go hand in hand.

Visitors to Bobcat’s INTERMAT 2024 stand also have an opportunity to experience Bobcat’s transparent OLED (T-OLED) screen technology, which has been incorporated into the right-hand window of the TL25.60e concept. Developed in collaboration with LG and BSI Research, Bobcat’s T-OLED technology enables operators to access an array of functionality without taking their eyes off the worksite, offering unparalleled clarity, responsiveness and visibility. It also has the capacity to facilitate a range of more advanced applications, such as real-time virtual reality (VR) simulations for utility line mapping.

The Bobcat RogueX2 concept loader is making its European debut at INTERMAT 2024. This autonomous, all-electric machine has been built as a proving ground for technologies developed as part of Bobcat’s innovation roadmap. The RogueX2 produces zero emissions thanks to its lithium-ion battery, electric drive system and electric-actuated lift and tilt kinematics with no hydraulics. The machine features wheels instead of tracks to optimize its electric battery runtime, and its axial flux motors deliver incredible tractive effort. With no cab, the fully autonomous RogueX2 offers a glimpse of how future generations of Bobcat loaders will facilitate an entirely new work experience for users.

Other innovations taking centrestage at INTERMAT 2024 include Bobcat’s collision warning and avoidance system, which leverages machine-integrated radar sensors to enhance the situational awareness of skid-steer and compact track loader operators. The cutting-edge technology can be customized to suit site-specific requirements, offering real-time obstacle and risk detection and a variety of response options. 

In keeping with INTERMAT 2024’s focus on sustainability, Bobcat is using the show to raise awareness of its green engine and fuel technology. The manufacturer's stand features the recently introduced M-Series S630 and S650 Stage V skid-steer loaders, which have been developed for use in European markets. The models’ D24 engines, which feature Bosch fuel-injection systems, deliver superior performance while adhering to strict emission regulations.

A new lineup of Bobcat rotary telehandlers – featuring the manufacturer’s patented panoramic cab, which offers unrivalled visibility – is also on display in Paris. The latest range comprises nine Stage V models with lifting heights of between 18 and 39 m that have been designed for European markets, and four Stage IIIA machines with lifting heights of 18 to 26 m that have been developed for use in the Middle East and Africa.

The Paris exhibition is providing a launchpad for Bobcat’s PG40 and PG50 generators. The units represent a leap forward in portable power solutions, offering a selection of advantages such as optional running gear for easy transportation and ‘Liquid Heat’, a low-load management system designed to reduce downtime and deliver peace of mind. Powered by Stage V Hyundai D24 engines, the eco-conscious models build on the success of their predecessors by delivering a combination of increased power and lower fuel consumption.

The Bobcat PA12.7V compressor also features in the manufacturer’s INTERMAT 2024 lineup. The portable variable pressure compressor utilizes a FlexAir system, which allows it to operate in the range of 5.5 to 12.1 bar, offering free air deliveries of 5.2 to 7 m3 per minute. As a result, the PA12.7v is suitable for a wide range of applications, making it one of the most versatile air compressors on the market.

In addition, Bobcat is demonstrating how its construction lineup is delivering even greater levels of sustainability to users. The manufacturer’s mini-excavators, skid-steer loaders, compact track loaders, compact wheel loaders, telehandlers, rotary telehandlers, mini track loaders and forklifts have been approved for use with HVO biofuel and other EN 15940 standard paraffinic fuels.
