The new TL358 and TL358+ telehandlers have been designed with narrow frames to make them just 2.1 metres wide, compared to the 2.3-metre width of Bobcat’s TL360 and TL470 models.

They are also short machines, only 4.5 metres long with an optimised 2.8-metre wheel base for enhanced stability and a short turning radius of 3.77 metres.

Maximum lift capacity of the TL358 is 2.6 tonne, whilst the TL358+ model can lift 3.0 tonnes. 

The cab can be mounted in two ways – in a low position for a 2.1-metre machine height or a higher position to optimise visibility for the operator from the cab. 

The maximum lift height of both models is 5.8 metres with 20 inch tyres.  The hydraulic system in both is controlled by a single Bobcat joystick in the cab linked to a load sensing valve block to allow flow sharing depending on the operator choice and the application need.
