Caterpillar Introduces the CAT TL1255C Telehandler
The Cat TL1255C Telehandler, the largest machine in the new C Series range, has a maximum lift capacity of 5,443 kilograms (12,000 lbs) and a maximum lift height of 16.6 metres (54.3 ft). The TL1255C Telehandler is ideal for general construction and industrial markets.
The high-strength boom enables the TL1255C to handle job site loads and the large box sections are designed to handle the demands of the side tilt and swing carriages. High boom pivot and side-mounted power module ensure improved, all-around visibility. Job site productivity is enhanced due to the simultaneously extending telescopic boom.
The TL1255C’s Cat C4.4 ACERTM meets 4 Interim/Stage IIIB emissions regulations, developing 106 kiloWatts (142 hp). It is specially designed for telehandler applications and can accommodate B20 biofuel. These diesel engines are built with Cat components that ensure smooth, quiet operation and long life. Fuel consumption is optimized to match operating applications, which lowers operating cost.
The TL1255C features the new Cat power shift transmission, which has 4 forward and 3 reverse gears. The transmission has clutch modulation fitted as standard, resulting in smooth gear change and increased operator comfort.
The cab is comfortable and stylish with a Cat full-suspension seat and improved job-site visibility. A pilot-operated, single lever joystick combines boom crowd and lift functions with an adjustable, two-position button for work tool tilt.
A range of Cat work tools extends the versatility of the machines. A high visibility manual IT coupler comes as standard, with the option of a hydraulic quick coupler to allow work tool changes without leaving the cab.
Service points are readily accessible and major components are at ground level. 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. The TL1255C Telehandler is easier to maintain and benefits from the Cat dealer support network.
