Readyplant Ltd, the plant and equipment rental company based in Croston in Lancashire, has expanded with the purchase of the first Bobcat T35105L telehandler in the UK from Wigan-based Norwest Plant Ltd, the Authorised Bobcat and Doosan dealer for North-West England and North Wales. Operating since 1984, Readyplant Ltd is a premier non-operated plant and machinery supplier in North West England, offering a wide range of small to medium sized equipment for hire.
Arthur Ruttle, Director of Readyplant Ltd, said: “The T35105L is the first Bobcat telehandler we have purchased and right from the start from when it was delivered, it has been out on hire and performing well on sites across the North West. The excellent range of features offered by the new T35105L is a perfect match for our requirements for the Readyplant fleet. We bought the new machine to meet increased demand from the construction sector, particularly in housebuilding.”
The T35105L is one of three new 10-12 m middle lift telehandlers from Bobcat, sharing the same, easily recognisable counterweight design and chassis in black and incorporating many of the improvements already seen in the TL360/TL470 6-7 m and T40140/T40180 14-18 m models launched over the last 18 months.
For construction and rental applications, the new T35105L telehandler features an auxiliary hydraulic line and is supplied with a 1.12 m wide foldable pallet forks carriage with backrest and 1200 mm pallet forks as standard.
An important safety feature is the Aggravating Movement Arrester (AMA) system which cuts off all aggravating movements to ensure safe use within the working envelope, whatever the attachment used and the type of load (palletised or suspended) being lifted. The T35105L telehandler has a maximum lift capacity of 3.5 tonne. The working envelope has a maximum lift height of 10.29 m and a maximum forward reach of 6.88 m.
