Telehandlers: Instrumentation

Bobcat has redesigned R-Series telehandler cabs to provide even more operator comfort and ease of operation. The telehandler cab builds upon the Bobcat tradition of operator-centered design with high visibility, excellent ergonomics, a standard 5-inch LCD display and an easy-to-read, automotive style instrumentation panel that Bobcat equipment operators will find familiar across R-Series machines. For all-day operation, the comfort and ease of use built into Bobcat telehandlers can’t be beat. 

Features & Benefits

Telehandler Joystick Controls And Steering Wheel

Operator Friendly Controls

Controls on the Bobcat telehandler are simple and straightforward. A single loader-style joystick controls the travel direction, lift and tilt functions, boom extension and auxiliary hydraulics. Use the optional fingertip auxiliary controls for added ease of use. The steering wheel makes maneuvering around jobsites easy, and the fingertip boom extension controls give you multi-function capabilities with little effort.
LCD Display Inside The Cab Of A Bobcat Telehandler

Multi-Functional LCD Screen

The standard, five-inch LCD display provides full-featured machine interaction and monitoring capabilities from right in the cab. Diagnostics and detailed operation information you can access through the display include monitoring, troubleshooting and error conditions. If there’s a problem with the system voltage, engine oil pressure, engine coolant temperature and other major functions, you’ll know. Get a clear, easy-to-read overview of machine operation at the touch of a button: job hours, travel or engine speed, boom angle, auxiliary hydraulic flow setting and much more. Run your equipment more efficiently and solve more problems in the field with the on-screen content.

Keyless Start

This simple option ensures no time is lost on your worksite if someone forgets the keys in the shop. Start your machine by entering a set code number and pressing the start button. Keyless start also protects against theft or unauthorized use. You can easily change the code using the master code supplied with the kit. It’s especially useful for rental machines, because you can change the code for each customer.
