Bobcat® TR38160

Bobcat® TR38160

To tackle all the demands of a busy working day, you need to have confidence in your machine. The rotary telescopic handler range has been carefully designed to give you that confidence.

  • Description


The new CAN BUS technology offers outstanding functionality and smooth control, as well as all information required to guarantee efficient and safe operation for the operator.

The new Bobcat TR38160 EVO telescopic handler features a robust, fully integrated boom head that adds extra strength for handling heavier loads. Designed for a long, productive life, the strong boom structure incorporates protection for vital parts such as the lift cylinder – enhancing the machine’s durability and reducing the risk of damage and downtime. The boom pivot point and lift cylinder bracket have been specifically developed for maximum loads with minimum stress on the boom, pivot point and chassis.

Faithfully following Bobcat tradition, the TR38180 offers compact solutions that enable operators to handle heavy loads at significant heights – safely and comfortably. A new robust main frame and protected chassis design, coupled with an enhanced boom structure featuring a bigger cross-section and a longer boom overlap, ensure that any loading application is within easy range.

Maximise your height and reach

With the new range of rotary telescopic handlers, you can now handle applications greater than 16 meters reach, and you have the flexibility of 400° and 360° rotation to improve reach and accessibility. The high lifting capacities ensure more versatile, efficient and safe use.

Efficiency and safety

Complete more work in less time: compared to rigid-frame telehandlers, the Bobcat rotary telescopic handlers allow users to reduce – by more than 50% – the time it takes to complete repetitive jobs, without moving the machine from the stabilisers. This not only ensures huge gains in efficiency but also promotes safe working practices and overall site safety.

Mobility and versatility

Drive the Bobcat rotary telescopic handlers all over the job site and access even the most confined spaces, thanks to the machines’ excellent manoeuvrability. Whatever your working environment, there is an automatic steering alignment mode to suit your requirements:

  • Front-wheel steering for road travel gets you to your next site quickly.
  • All-wheel steering gives you better on-site handling and a smaller turning radius for sharp turns in small and narrow spaces.
  • Crab steering lets you position loads to the side with perfect precision in cramped areas.

And with the vast range of attachments, the rotary telescopic handlers become even more versatile, with dramatic advantages versus a crane and access platform.

Reliability and aftermarket support

A lot of attention has been paid to the machines’ reliability and aftermarket support. The 4 rotary telescopic handler models use the best components in the industry, coupled with a high level of workmanship and proven reliability – all of which contribute to low operating costs throughout the machine’s lifetime.

Man platform ready as standard

All 4 rotary models are standard equipped with man platform settings. No specific options are required to fit any of the 14 man platforms offered.

Hydrostatic transmission

The easy-to-use, heavy-duty hydrostatic transmission allows accurate positioning for greater safety and precision, as well as continuous speed control.

Remote control – open doors to more applications

All the models in our range can be equipped with radio remote control. Get more done by remote-controlled boom functions.

Travel speed

Travel time is downtime for construction equipment. But our machines can move quickly from one job site to another – and are back to work in no time.


Via load sensing control, managing stability is simple and safe. The 4 independently controlled stabilisers provide full stability even on uneven ground. Once deployed, the transmission is automatically cut to enhance stability.

In addition, to ensure maximum stability during rotation, the rear axle is locked automatically at angles in excess of +/- 15° of rotation.

Cab comfort and visibility

An oversized cab provides generous space – so the operator can work comfortably all day long. The instrument panel is designed to provide a clear overview of the machine’s operating status.

Easy maintenance, less downtime

Thanks to the common platform and consistent design, you’ll find all the components and service points in the same, easy-to-access place on every machine. Maintenance is a breeze and downtime is reduced.

The service you trust, from the dealer you know

Our well-developed dealer network has the knowledge and experience to take the best care of our Bobcat customers. No matter where you are, you’ll get the service you expect – and can rely on!
