Operator Efficiency
Designed for simple, easy operation, the TH210 allows the operator to work productively and comfortably.

Operator Efficiency

Enclosed Cab
The TH210 is equipped with an enclosed cab allowing the operator to work comfortably, with air conditioning available as an option. The cab structure has been designed and certified to provide falling object and rollover protection (FOPS/ROPS).

The standard suspension seat is adjustable to provide a comfortable ride and an air suspension seat is available as an option. The operator can adjust the angle and the height of the steering column for maximum comfort.

Control Layout
The cab layout has been ergonomically designed to make the operator's job as easy as possible. The controls are logical, highly responsive and easy to reach. The instrument panel is comprehensive and clear. The gauge cluster includes a tachometer, hour meter, fuel gauge and engine coolant temperature indicator to monitor the machine's systems.

Single Joystick
The joystick is located within easy reach of the operator. Diagonal movement of the joystick allows a combination of boom and tool functions to be achieved simultaneously. To raise or lower the boom, move the joystick backward or forward respectively. Move the joystick to the right to dump and the left to rack back. The colored buttons on the joystick control the boom and auxiliary hydraulic functions.

A hydraulic header tank is located in the engine compartment for easy fill access. The hydrostatic circuit is supplied by the hystat gear pump, which provides 80 L/min (21 gal/min) of flow at the boom head.

Ease of Operation
Easy operation results in greater productivity.

Ease of Operation

The machine's low profile design, side mounted engine, and low boom pivot point allow the operator to carry loads in a low position without obstructing visibility to the right of the machine. The mid-mounted cab also improves visibility to the rear. The front windshield is a rounded single sheet of glass stretching from just above the dashboard, over the operator's head for excellent visibility. The upper portion of the cab door is independently hinged so that it can be opened and secured for ventilation and ease of communication.

The compact dimensions of the TH210 offer excellent maneuverability. With its low profile and 3 m (9 ft 10 in) outside turning radius, it can work productively in confined areas.

Steering Modes
Three steering modes (circle, two wheel and crab steer) allow the operator to easily position the machine in small, confined areas. Steering modes are selected by using the steering mode switch in the operator's compartment. An indicator light in the cab illuminates when the wheels are properly aligned.

The fenders are mounted to the axle and turn with the wheels allowing the operator to easily determine the wheel orientation while protecting them from mud, rocks and water spray.

Performance and Power Train
With its Caterpillar designed 3054B-DI naturally aspirated Tier II engine and a hydrostatic drive, the TH210 delivers a powerful performance from a small machine.

Performance and Power Train

The TH210 is powered by the well-proven Caterpillar 3054B-DI naturally aspirated diesel engine. The engine is U.S. EPA Tier II emissions compliant. It provides high fuel efficiency and excellent reliability, developing full torque at lower revolutions compared to other engines.

Power Mode
A power mode switch located on the right side of the operator console allows an operator to select between two different modes of operation - progressive and aggressive - to match application.

Hydrostatic Drive
The TH210 features a high pressure, closed circuit hydrostatic drive to deliver powerful but smooth acceleration while providing continuous torque through the two speed ranges. The low speed band is 8 km/h (5 mph) and the high speed band is 32 km/h (20 mph).

Hystat Pump
The hystat pump is an axial piston, variable displacement pump with a cradle swashplate design.

Both axles steer and utilize planetary reduction hubs. The rear axle is center trunnion mounted, allowing 5 degrees of total oscillation. The front axle is fixed.

The brake system is filled with hydraulic oil from the main hydraulic system. The parking brake is hand activated. The brake system has an accumulator that provides reserved brake pressure in the event of a hydraulic failure.

The TH210 offers outstanding productivity in a wide range of applications.

Compact Size
The small size and maneuverability of these machines make them capable of providing a solution to a customer who may not have used a telehandler before or to those customers who need compact size combined with low cab height.

The TH210 is a very versatile machine that can be used in a wide variety of applications. With the correct work tool for the job, the machine's size and capability can provide an advantage in many of the applications listed: GENERAL CONSTRUCTION

Easy service and maintenance save you time and money.


Ease of Access
The TH210 utilizes a side mounted engine design, which provides easy access to major service points. Regular maintenance is important in ensuring a long, productive machine life and helping minimize downtime on the job. The complete service schedule can be found in the Operation and Maintenance Manual that accompanies the machine.

The TH210 has a two-section, box-formed boom constructed from a continuously welded, high-strength, heavy-duty pressed steel plate with generous boom section overlaps to reduce pad loads and increase pad life.

Reinforced Cooling Package
The hydraulic oil is cooled upon exit from the hystat drive motor by an oil-to-air heat exchanger before returning to the main hydraulic tank. The TH210 is equipped with a blower fan that pushes air out through the rear-mounted radiator and an oil cooler that tilts out for cleaning purposes. This directs the hot air away from the operator providing a more comfortable work environment. An optional reversing fan is available for more effective cooling when working in hot or rugged environments.

Electrical System
A battery disconnect switch is standard to help prevent theft and to minimize drain on the battery. The fuse panel is located within the cab console and is well protected by a removable plastic cover.
