Caterpillar has launched four new telehandlers, the TH336C, TH337C, TH406C and TH407C models, with improved performance through new engines and transmissions, as well as redesigned hydraulics.

The maximum lift height for the new models ranges from 6,096mm to 7,315mm, and there is a maximum load capacity from 3,300kg to 3,700kg.

The C4.4 engine is rated at either 74.5 kW (100 hp) or 93.1 kW (124 hp), and customers have a choice of engines and transmissions, allowing models to be tailored to the applications, while refinements in the implement and auxiliary hydraulic systems enhance performance and efficiency.

One significant step forward is the implement hydraulic system for C-Series telehandlers, which features a new torque-regulated/load-sensing, variable-displacement axial-piston pump and a full-flow sharing valve that permits the operator to engage three hydraulic functions simultaneously.

For enhanced control, the system allows developing full hydraulic power at low engine speeds, facilitating the precise placement of heavy loads. The new hydraulic system provides enhanced value for the customer through increased production potential, fuel savings, longer component life and reduced sound levels.

Another major improvement is the new control features to assist operators in precisely placing loads, as well as when traversing the rough terrain of job sites. The telehandlers have a three-mode steering system, which permits the operator to precisely position the machine, promoting job-site efficiency and safety.

All the new machines feature a long wheelbase, low center of gravity and compact turning radius. Strategically placed hand-holds and steps are designed to provide safe, convenient cab entry and exit, and the operator is protected with an enclosed roll-over protective structure.

To reduce routine maintenance and overall operating costs, Cat C-Series telehandlers feature 500-hour engine-oil change intervals, maintenance-free drive shafts, and grouped grease fittings for the rear-axle cradle and compensating cylinder. All filters are easily accessible, and a service menu is available via the keypad and LCD monitor.
