  • Operator Station

    The operator station provides comfort and protection with improved job site visibility and more convenient, easier to use controls.

    • Imageservlet?imageid=c177739&imagetype=1

      Intuitive Control Layout

      All day operator comfort and efficiency is ensured through our simple, logical control layout.

    • Easier Access

      Cab entry and exit is both easier and more convenient due to the well placed handholds and step.

    • Imageservlet?imageid=c177736&imagetype=1

      Operator Protection

      The machine provides full operator security with OROPS or EROPS protection.

    • Imageservlet?imageid=c177736&imagetype=1

      Enhanced Visibility

      The TL-Series cab has improved visibility due to the use of advanced virtual design techniques.

  • Imageservlet?imageid=c177739&imagetype=1
  • Ease of Operation

    Ease of operation was extremely important in the design of the new TL943 telehandler. The boom lift functions are controlled by a single joystick.

    • Imageservlet?imageid=c177739&imagetype=1

      Joystick Control

      The joystick allows three simultaneous boom functions and operates the auxiliary hydraulic function. It allows the option of a second auxiliary service for the use of work tools that require more than one hydraulic service.

    • Flow Sharing

      Three simultaneous hydraulic functions are achieved using a full flow sharing hydraulic valve. A load sensing variable displacement pump allows full hydraulic power even at low revs.

  • Imageservlet?imageid=c201746&imagetype=1
  • Performance

    The TL943 with outriggers delivers high performance to meet your specific job site needs.

    • Imageservlet?imageid=c177773&imagetype=1

      Lift Height

      The TL943 can effectively pick and place materials to a maximum height of 43 ft. (13.1 m).

    • Imageservlet?imageid=c177773&imagetype=1

      Reach

      Job site obstacles present challenges demanding a machine to place loads at greater distances - the TL943 delivers.

    • Maneuverability

      The TL943 offers improved maneuverability, allowing it to work productively in confined areas.

    • Steering Modes

      The TL943 offers three steering modes (two wheel, crab and circle steer) to allow an operator to more easily position the machine. Steering modes are selected by a single three-position rocker switch. Steering position sensors are fitted as standard to all steering modes to be changed while moving.

  • Imageservlet?imageid=c177747&imagetype=1
  • Power Train

    Cat componentry, including a Cat C4.4 DITAAC engine, gives you the quality power train that you expect.

    • Transmission

      The TL943 features a ZF, WG98-TSC power-shift transmission.

  • Imageservlet?imageid=c177773&imagetype=1
  • Versatility

    The TL943 telehandler is as versatile as your toughest job demands.

    • Quick Coupler
