Bobcat-branded rotary telehandlers, made by Magni TH, will be available in Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Russia and the CIS countries. 

The new Bobcat rotary telehandler range includes ten Stage V compliant models for the European market, with lifting heights from 18 to 39 metres and lifting capacities from four to seven tonnes. Four Stage IIIA engine powered models will be offered to the Middle East, Africa and Russia/CIS regions with lifting heights up to 25 metres and lifting capacities up to six tonnes.

Olivier Traccucci, Bobcat telehandler senior product manager, said: “Our new rotary telehandler range offers an expanded model selection and increased lifting heights and lifting capacities. The new range offers cutting-edge technology that continues the theme of reinvention that is at the core of our ‘Next is Now’ philosophy. As a result, they offer enhanced 360° performance to create the ultimate tools for even the most complex site handling jobs. A big choice of over 20 attachments and various options also ensures that working at height has never been so versatile, efficient, comfortable and safe.”

Magni TH founder and president Riccardo Magni, said:” Bobcat’s strength in the material handling and construction sector is renowned around the world, coupled with my 40 years’ experience in the design and production of innovative products will mean that Bobcat material handling range will be even greater force to be reckoned with.

"For Magni TH this is a further step to grow and consolidate the presence in the global markets and to confirm the leadership in the rotational telehandler segment.”

The Bobcat rotary telehandler range for Europe comprises 10 models: the TR40.180 (four tonnes/18 metres), TR50.180, TR50.210, TR50.250, TR60.210, TR60.250, TR70.260, TR60.300, TR60.350 and TR60.390 (six tonnes/39 metres).

In Europe, the market for rotary telehandlers has increased over the last five years by 23%, Bobcat said. In 2019, it reached more than 3,000 units for the first time.

Magni said that with its new 35,00 m2 production facility in Castelfranco Emilia near Modena, in addition to its existing 6,000 m2 plant, it now has capacity to produce 3,500 rotating machines per year on its own.

Invented in the early 1990s, rotary telehandlers feature a rotating turret and four stabilisers, which enable them to work solidly in place with full operating capacity. The 360° turret rotation allows the machines to handle loads everywhere in the working envelop without needing to move.
