Lift and Access Magazine recently reviewed Bobcat’s new V923 VersaHANDLER telehandler and highlighted its improved performance and features. Its turbocharged engine boasts 130 horsepower, and coupled with a heavy-duty drivetrain delivers a lifting capacity of up to 9,000 lbs. Travel speed can reach 24.5 mph.
Features also include:
The engine on the V923 has state-of-the-art engineering that meets Tier 4 regulations without the need of a DPF, or diesel particulate filter, which reduces maintenance costs and simplifies operation. Bobcat engines feature a combustion chamber that minimizes particulate matter created while in use. The heavy-duty hydrostatic transmission delivers smooth acceleration, quick power on demand, and high wheel torque necessary for digging and pushing.
The V923 VersaHANDLER has a low-profile boom that pivots at the rear of the machine. This allows for more weight on the front axle which delivers powerful pushing capability. Additionally, the operator enjoys increased visibility on the right-hand side with the boom positioned below eye level.
Simple and Comfortable to Operate
Within the cabin, operation is made simple with automotive-style steering wheel and foot pedals. Air conditioning and heat are standard. A single joystick controls lift, tilt, boom extension, and travel direction functions. Wraparound rear window offers unobstructed view from every angle, and wipers are positioned on the front, top, and rear windows.
