Ideal for agriculture, construction, landscaping, snow removal and many other applications, the all new TL619 telehandler from Bobcat gives operators the flexibility to accomplish a variety of demanding tasks with precision. 
Featuring a redesigned comfort cab, turbo-charged engine and easy-to-access service points, the TL619 combines power and nimbleness to create a lifting, stacking, backfilling and reaching machine matched for a variety of jobs.

The TL619 has a load capacity of 5,500 pounds and a lift height of 19 feet for enhanced productivity with every lift cycle. With an optional, add-on counterweight, operators can extend their telehandler's rated capacity throughout the lift cycle to reduce repetitive tasks and complete jobs more quickly. 
The advanced Tier 4, turbo-charged engine delivers powerful, high-torque performance and achieves emissions compliance without the use of a diesel particulate filter (DPF) or selective catalyst reduction (SCR).
Five operation modes gives operators the versatility needed for a wide variety of applications:

  • ECO mode allows the operator to maintain hydraulic performance without using the engine's full power - working with lower rpm, less noise and lower fuel consumption. 
  • Smooth Drive mode is ideal for maneuvering across jobsites with mild acceleration and deceleration while carrying loads. 
  • Dynamic Drive mode increases responsiveness of the telehandler's acceleration and deceleration for traveling between tasks. 
  • Flex Drive mode allows the operator to manage the engine speed independently from travel speed. 
  • Advanced Attachment Control mode allows for full auxiliary hydraulic performance.

The TL619 was designed to incorporate efficient Bobcat R-Series styling and enhanced visibility. The low-profile boom sits below operator eye level to provide an open view of the surroundings. The redesigned engine basket sits lower for increased line of sight. Front, top and rear window wipers help keep windows free of debris and precipitation. Multiple mirrors on the operator's left and right provide added visibility when working in confined areas. An optional rear mirror kit, rear view camera kit and boom work light kit also are available.
The redesigned cab featured high visibility, a comfortable suspension seat, efficient HVAC system, and an easy-to-read, automotive-style instrumentation panel. Bobcat telehandler cabs are designed and tested to Roll-Over Protection Structure (ROPS) and Falling Object Protective Structure (FOPS) level II standards.
A single, intuitive joystick controls the travel direction, lift and tilt functions, boom extension, and auxiliary hydraulics. This gives the operator fine adjustment for lifting loads with care. It also allows operators to control several machine functions at the same time and from one control point, enabling more precise control and higher productivity without having to remove their hand from the joystick.
Fingertip control access makes operation smooth and comfortable. On the front side of the joystick, the directional switch for forward, neutral and reverse can be operated with the index finger. The 2-speed travel switch, lift-arm float, boom extension, machine function settings and auxiliary hydraulics are located on the rear of the joystick.
