Intuitive Control Layout
All day operator comfort and efficiency is ensured through our easier to use control layout.
Cab entry and exit is both easier and more convenient due to the well placed handholds.
The machine provides full operator security with OROPS or EROPS protection.
The TL-Series cab has improved visibility due to the use of advanced virtual design techniques.
The joystick allows three simultaneous boom functions enabling application customization for more than a dozen configurations.
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 TL642 can pick and place bricks and materials to a maximum height of 42 ft. (12.8 m).
Job site obstacles present challenges demanding a machine to place loads at greater distances - the TL642 delivers.
The TL642 offers improved maneuverability, allowing it to work productively in confined areas.
The TL642 offers three steering modes (two wheel, crab and 4-wheel 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.
Th TL642 features a Cat Power-shift transmission.
A manual IT coupler is standard on the TL-Series machines. For optimum versatility, all machines are equipped with the hydraulic quick coupler, allowing the operator to more easily change non-hydraulic work tools without leaving the cab.
Machines are equipped with Auxiliary Hydraulic services, allowing the use of hydraulically operated work tools. All TL-Series telehandlers are equipped with a single auxiliary hydraulic service and continuous hydraulic flow.
