The new Cat TH406, TH407 and TH414 telehandlers are tough, versatile machines designed to deliver high levels of productivity across virtually any jobsite. The Cat TH406 has a load capacity of 3700 kg, a lift height of 6.1 metres and a forward reach of 3.1 metres. The Cat TH407 has a load capacity of 3700 kg, a lift height of 7.3 metres and a forward reach of 3.7 metres. The Cat TH414 has the same load capacity, but a larger forward reach of 9.2 metres and a larger lift height of 13.7 metres.
Load-sensing, flow-sharing hydraulics deliver high digging and lift forces, and allow all boom functions to be operated simultaneously and proportionally. The Z-bar linkage on TH406 and TH407 delivers strong breakout forces when using a bucket
A 74.5 kW (100 hp) Cat C4.4 turbo charged engine is standard on all machines. An optional 93.1 kW (125 hp) Cat C4.4 engine with ACERTTM Technology is available for the TH406 and TH407. Both engines are certified to Stage IIIA (Tier III) emission regulations.
A limited slip differential fitted in the front axle allows the machines to work effectively in tough conditions. The chassis on the TH414 can be hydraulically tilted relative to the front axle to ensure truly vertical lift on uneven surfaces.
A range of Cat work tools extends the versatility of the machines. A high visibility manual IT coupler comes as standard, with the option of a hydraulic quick coupler to allow work tool changes without leaving the cab.
The new cab is spacious and comfortable with good all-round visibility, and features a new heating and ventilation system with optional air conditioning. The single lever joystick with roller switches is easy to use, and all controls, including auxiliary hydraulics, are fully proportional.
An in-cab LCD displays a wide range of information, including machine speed, operating hours, fuel level, coolant temperature and error messages. The keypad can be used to select various operating modes, including three different steering modes.
A Longitudinal Stability Indicator provides a constant and progressive check on load safety with a cut-out should the recommended load be exceeded. A built-in start code device reduces the risk of theft and unauthorised use.
Both machines are easy to maintain and benefit from Cat dealer support with most parts delivered within 24 hours.
