The Cat TL1255C telehandler, the largest machine in the new C Series range, has a maximum lift capacity of 12,000 lbs. (5,443 kg) and a maximum lift height of 54.3 ft. (16.6 m). 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, according to the manufacturer.
The TL1255C’s Cat C4.4 ACERT engine meets Tier IV Interim/Stage IIIB emissions regulations, developing 142 hp (106 kW). 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 four forward and three 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.
