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

Control Layout

All day operator comfort and efficiency is ensured through our simple, easier to use control layout.

Easier Access

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

Operator Protection

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

Enhanced Visibility

The TL C Series cab has improved visibility with its advanced design techniques.

Ease of operation was extremely important in the design of the new TL642C. The single, pilot operated joystick is designed to maximize operator efficiency.

Joystick Control

The joystick allows three simultaneous boom functions enabling application customization.

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.

The TL642C delivers high performance to meet your specific job site needs.

Lift Height

The TL642C can effectively pick and place bricks and materials to a maximum height of 42 ft. (12.8 m).

Reach

Job site obstacles present challenges demanding a machine to place loads at greater distances - the TL642C delivers.

Maneuverability

The TL642C offers improved maneuverability, allowing it to work productively in confined areas.

Steering Modes

The TL642C 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.

Cat componentry, including a Cat C3.4B,Tier 4 Interim engine gives you the quality power train that you expect.

Transmission

The TL642C features a ZF,WG98-TSC Power-shift transmission.

The TL642C is as versatile as your toughest job demands.

Quick Coupler

A Caterpillar IT interface is standard on the TL C Series machines. For optimum versatility, an optional hydraulic quick coupler is available, allowing the operator to change non-hydraulic work tools without leaving the cab.

Hydraulic Services

Machines are equipped with Auxiliary Hydraulic services, allowing the use of hydraulically operated work tools. All TL C Series telehandlers are equipped with a single auxiliary hydraulic service and continuous hydraulic flow.

Work Tools

A wide range of work tools are available to meet most job site applications. Caterpillar Telehandler Work Tools extend the versatility of the machine. Built for performance and durability, these work tools deliver high productivity, long life and excellent value. Contact your Cat dealer for available work tool options.
