TL943 w/Stabilizers Telehandler

DESCRIPTION

Cat Telehandlers offer performance and versatility.The TL943 is a highly versatile machine, designed to deliver maximum performance with traditional Cat reliability, durability and productivity in the toughest working conditions.

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.

Enhanced Visibility

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

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.

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.

Features

  • Operator Protection

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

  • 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.

  • Lift Height

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

  • 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.

  • Transmission

    The TL943 features a Cat PG145 power-shift transmission.

  • Quick Coupler

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

  • 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.
