Caterpillar Telehandler Group, Hagerstown, Md., introduces a the new TH514 telescopic handler. The machine is rated at 11,000 pounds, has a forward reach of 30’3” and can lift loads to heights of 45 feet when stabilizers are engaged.
Load-sensing, flow-sharing hydraulics allow for all three boom functions to be operated simultaneously and proportionally. The system provides smooth and accurate control of the load. The 101 hp Cat C4.4 DITAAC mechanical control, turbo charged engine is standard and certified to Stage IIIA (Tier3) emission regulations. Also standard is a limited slip differential fitted in the front axle.
The telehandler features a new cab design with improved heating and ventilation systems. Air conditioning is optional. All controls, including auxiliary hydraulics, are operated via a single lever joystick with roller switches. An in-cab LCD displays a wide range of information, and the keypad can be used to select various operating modes, including three different steering modes.
Service access points are conveniently located under the engine cover, and routine daily maintenance is now reduced to checking fluid levels and a walk-around inspection.
“Field feedback has been very positive,” said Ky Kuehling, VP Product Parent, Cat Telehandlers. “Operators like the machine’s power, how quiet it is when in operation, its single joystick controls with smooth boom in/out and up/down functions, and overall ground clearance. And with the machine’s low boom pivot, it gives the operator the visibility he needs to place loads with precision.”
