Bobcat Company’s V519 VersaHANDLER telescopic tool carrier (also known as telehandler) is a compact machine featuring a two-stage boom with a reach of more than 10 feet, lift height of 19 feet, and the ability to lift up to 5,500 lbs.
Designed with a standard 2-speed hydrostatic drive system, the V519 is suited to operate standard and hydraulic-powered attachments. As V519 operators lift their foot off the pedal, the machine comes to a stop. In addition, the automatic parking brake engages anytime the engine idles when it is stopped (in neutral) — an exclusive feature of the V519 — to avoid unintentional movement.
When V519 operators need full auxiliary hydraulic flow without full travel speed, a speed management feature allows operators to dial in a percentage of the normal speed. Operators can adjust the desired travel speed with plus and minus buttons located on the joystick. This feature helps operators using hydraulically powered attachments, such as angle brooms and snowblowers. Available for the first time in a Bobcat telescopic tool carrier of this size, the popular Bob-Tach attachment mounting system provides a mechanism for quick attachment changes.
