At Bauma 2016, Bobcat previewed the company’s new Stage IV engine for use in all the models in the Bobcat rigid telehandler range for sale in countries regulated by the Stage IV emission standards. This new development follows on the heels of the launch of a new three year warranty as standard on all Bobcat rigid telehandlers.
The new Bobcat compact Stage IV engine has been developed and manufactured in-house, specifically for use in the Bobcat rigid telehandler range. This has resulted in optimised engine performances and the compactness of the engine has improved visibility on the engine side of the telehandlers, which is important advantage for material handling applications.
The new high performance Bobcat Stage IV engine is available in three different sizes:
– A 55.2 kW (75 HP) engine model offering cost efficient operation, without Diesel Engine Fluid (DEF) injection and involving only a Diesel Oxidation Catalyst (DOC) as an after-treatment technology.
– A 74.5 kW (100 HP) model for heavy operations, with DOC and Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) with DEF injection after-treatment technologies.
– A 97 kW (130 HP) unit utilising DOC and SCR with DEF injection after-treatment technologies, for tough applications requiring more power.
All of the new engines share the same electronic fuel injection, High Pressure Common Rail technology, turbo-charged air management and Cooled Exhaust Gas Recirculation for lower emissions and do not require the use of Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) technology. This combination of the most advanced technologies available ensures the highest engine performance, whilst keeping fuel consumption to a minimum. It is all part of a company strategy that ensures that Bobcat continues to offer high-end solutions for telehandler customers.
