Strong Presence for Bobcat Products at First BAUMA Africa

Exhibition: BAUMA Africa 2013 Venue: Johannesburg, South Africa

Date: 18-21 September 2013

Stand No: Indoor H5.321, Outside – C61

With stands in both the indoor (H5.321) and outdoor (C61) sections, Bobcat Equipment South Africa (Pty) Ltd, now part of the Goscor Group of Companies and the Imperial Group, will have a strong presence at the first ever BAUMA Africa Exhibition in Johannesburg from 18-21 September 2013, with a comprehensive display of the latest Bobcat compact loader, compact excavator, telescopic handler and attachment products.

Centre stage will be the new Bobcat 500 platform of compact loaders launched earlier this year. The new 500 platform includes some of the company’s most popular models and is intended to cement Bobcat’s leadership of the skid-steer and compact tracked loader market worldwide.

Higher Performance

Being shown alongside models from the company’s larger 800 Series of compact loaders, the new 500 platform models continue the pattern set by the larger machines with significant advances in comfort, visibility, cab room, controllability and cab pressurisation. With overall performance and cycle times up by around 16% on the previous models, the new 500 platform loaders take efficiency and productivity to new, higher levels.

The Bobcat range of telescopic handlers will also be a prominent feature of the stand at BAUMA Africa. The company now offers a range of four rotary telehandlers, the TR38160, TR45190, TR50210 and TR40250 models, providing lifting capacities from 3.8 to 5.0 tonne and maximum lifting heights of 15.7, 18.7, 20.5 and 24.5 m, respectively.

Equally adept for rough terrain applications in the building, civil engineering and industrial markets, the Bobcat rotary telehandler models complement the existing Bobcat range of 13 rigid frame telehandlers with lift capacities from 2.2 to 4.0 tonne and lift heights from 5.2 to 17.4 m.

Part of the state-of-the-art E-generation of Bobcat compact excavators, the E35 model being shown at BAUMA Africa offers all the advantages common to the E-Series: high reliability, exceptional operator comfort, smooth and precise workgroup operation and superior hydraulic performance. The E35 excavator offers a digging depth of 3117 mm, reach at ground level of 5230 mm and a dump height of 3437 mm.

This 3.5 tonne zero tail swing model combines maximum productivity with the ability to carry out jobs with precision and fingertip control. The load sense piston pump and the closed centre valve enable exceptionally fine metering of hydraulic flow for smooth, precise control of machine functions, while reducing hydraulic noise. The boom and dipper arm cylinders are cushioned to provide a smooth, end-of stroke operation.

Completing the Bobcat stand displays are examples from the company’s huge range of attachments for Bobcat compact loaders, excavators and telehandlers including the forestry cutter, soil conditioner and auger attachments. Complementing Bobcat attachments for construction and rental markets, these are part of a growing family of Bobcat attachments covering a wide range of applications in the landscaping, forestry, recycling, horticultural and grounds maintenance industries.
