Case Unveils Largest Telehandler in Lineup

After introducing three new telehandlers at World of Concrete, Case Construction Equipment unveiled its latest telehandler at ConExpo last week, the TX1055. The 10,000-pound capacity model offers the same comfort, visibility and ease of serviceability as the other machines in the series in a larger package.

“Case TX Series telescopic handlers were built to deliver maximum performance, reliability and productivity on the jobsite, and the new TX1055 is no exception,” said Jim Hughes, brand marketing manager. “The comfortable cab includes a single joystick control for maximum operator efficiency and the low-boom design provides enhanced stability and visibility. The powershift transmission features four forward and three reverse gears for smoother operation.”

Equipped with a high performance Case Family IV 4.5 liter turbocharged engine, the TX1055 is rated at 108 net hp. The full powershift transmission features four forward and three reverse gears, providing smooth, on-the-go forward-reverse shifting at any engine speed for more productive operation.

The TX1055 can reach a top speed of 22 mph in forward and 14 mph in reverse for quick maneuvering across the jobsite.

The low-boom design on the Case TX Series models enhances both stability and visibility on the new TX1055. This model has a four-section boom, while the other models in the range have three-section booms.

The high-mounted cab offers all-around visibility • forward to the forks for quicker, more precise placement of loads and to the rear of the machine for a safer worksite environment. The 153-inch turning radius provides maneuverability in confined spaces. Standard front and rear work lights and mirrors provide added productivity.

“The cab on the TX1055 telescopic handler is one of the most spacious operating platforms in the industry and is designed with comfort, safety and productivity in mind,” Hughes said. “The sizeable cab, easy-to-read instrument panel and conveniently placed controls will put any operator at ease.” The standard seat adjusts to suit each operator and an optional mechanical suspension seat is available for greater comfort.

Front-wheel steer provides maximum control at high transport speeds; four-wheel steer provides maximum maneuverability and a tight turning radius; and crab steer provides maneuverability when working beside a structure.

Serviceability was another factor that played into the telehandler's design and all service points are located within easy reach. “The easier it is to perform maintenance, the more likely it will get done,” Hughes said. “The side-mounted engine on the TX1055 provides ground-level access to major service points for routine maintenance so daily service and maintenance can be completed quickly and easily.”

A universal quick coupler design and an array of attachments • including a variety of carriages, forks, augers, buckets and brooms • gives the TX1055 the added versatility to carry, lift, stack, grade and push.

The TX1055 has an operating weight of 30,754 pounds, a maximum lift height of 55 feet, a maximum lift capacity of 10,000 pounds, and a forward reach of 40' 5”.
