Operator Station
The operator station provides comfort and protection with excellent job site visibility and convenient, logical controls.

Operator Station

Intuitive Control Layout
All day operator comfort and efficiency is ensured through our simple, logical control layout.

Easy Access
Cab entry and exit is both easy and convenient due to the well placed handholds and step.

Operator Protection
The machine provides full operator security with ROPS/FOPS protection.

A variety of seats are available, tailored to meet the requirements of the operator and applications.

Electronic Machine Information Display
Communicates essential technical data to facilitate easier machine operation.

Excellent Viewing Area
The B-Series cab has a superb viewing area due to the use of advanced virtual design techniques.

The joystick is capable of three simultaneous boom functions making machine operation easy. All functions are fully modulated.

Ease of Operation
Ease of operation was paramount in the design of the new TH580B. The single joystick with its intuitive, modulated, hydraulic functions, and the new Cat electronic machine information display are designed to maximize operator efficiency.

Ease of Operation

Joystick Control
The joystick allows three simultaneous boom functions and incorporates unique slider switches. The joystick also operates the auxiliary hydraulic function and allows the option of a second auxiliary service for the use of work tools that require more than one hydraulic service.

Hydraulic System
The Cat Electro Hydraulic system allows all three boom functions to be operated simultaneously and proportionally. This enables precise placing of loads in challenging applications. Auxiliary hydraulic functions are available on the joystick to allow operators to utilize more complex work tools. A continuous flow auxiliary hydraulic supply is available for operating tools such as brooms that require continuous flow for long periods of time.

Integrated System
The Cat integrated management system allows the engine, transmission and hydraulic systems to operate with maximum efficiency, control and productivity.

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.

Kick Down Switch
Engine revolutions can be controlled by pressing the joystick trigger, thus reducing hydraulic flow for fine controlled load replacement.

The TH580B delivers high performance to meet your specific job site needs.


Lift Height
The TH580B can effectively and quickly place bricks, roofing materials and trusses to a maximum height of 17 m (56 ft).

Job site obstacles present challenges demanding a machine to place loads at greater distances - with a reach of 12 700 mm (42 ft), the TH580B delivers.

The TH580B offers excellent maneuverability, due to its tight turning circle and its three different steering modes. The TH580B has a 48 degree axle steering angle and no rear tail swing, allowing it to work productively and safely in confined areas.

Steering Modes
The TH580B offers three steering modes (two wheel, crab and circle steer) to allow an operator to 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.

Frame LevelStabilizers
Power Train
Cat engines, axles and transmissions give you the quality power train that you expect.

Power Train

High Torque Rise Engine
The Cat 3054E electronic engine is U.S. EPA Tier 2 compliant. While continuing to deliver maximum performance, it features improved timing, reduced smoke and exceptional service improvements. For improved sound characteristics a venturi tailpipe has been packaged inside the engine enclosure. An electronic engines delivers:
  • Improved low idle performance
  • Improved fuel consumption
  • Improved cold start
  • Increased diagnostic and security capability.
The TH580B is offered with one engine configuration - 92kW (120 hp).

The TH580B has a purpose designed Cat four speed forward, three speed reverse powersyncro transmission.

The TH580B is fitted with Caterpillar planetary reduction axles. For improved machine performance in difficult conditions, a differential lock is available (front axle).

Redefine the traditional role of a telehandler with the Cat TH580B.


Quick Coupler
A hydraulic IT interface is standard on the TH580B. For optimum versatility, machines can be equipped with the hydraulic quick coupler, allowing the operator to quickly and easily change non-hydraulic work tools without leaving the cab.

Hydraulic Services
Machines are equipped with an Auxiliary Hydraulic service, allowing the use of hydraulically operated work tools. All B-Series Telehandlers are equipped with a single auxiliary hydraulic service and continuous hydraulic flow.

Work Tools
A wide range of work tools are available to meet most job site applications. Cat 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. Access Platform General Purpose Bucket (1.0 m3/1.3 yd3) Fixed Carriage Rotate Carriage Sideshift Carriage Swing Carriage Wide Carriage Wide Rotate Carriage Pallet Forks Block Forks Lift Hook Truss Boom Self-tipping Hopper Contact your Cat dealer for additional work tool options.

Tow Hitch
A manual rear tow hitch is available for off-highway towing as an option.

Cost of Ownership
Specifically designed to lower your owning and operating costs.

Cost of Ownership

Ease of Access
Cost of ownership starts with ease of service. All Cat Telehandler service points are readily accessible and major components are easy to reach at ground level due to overall machine design.

Daily Maintenance
Routine daily maintenance is now reduced to checking fluid levels and a walkaround inspection.

Service Intervals
Engine oil, filter changes and routine lubrication are now only required every 500 hours.

Reduced Componentry
The combined hydraulic/transmission oil filter requires changing at 1,000 hours. With the reduction in the number of filters and extended service intervals, operating costs are the lowest in the industry.

Machine Security System
Secure your investment with the Caterpillar Machine Security System (MSS), a programmable key system that provides optimum machine security for both fleet users and single owners.
  • MSS disables machine by interacting with the machine's Electronic Control Modules (ECM)
  • Keys fit all existing Cat machines (including machines without MSS)
  • Each machine can store up to 50 key identifications
  • Each key can be configured to operate a certain range of machines or enable operation for a certain period of time

Serviceability and Customer Support
Caterpillar Dealer Services enable you to operate longer with lower costs, helped by significantly extended service intervals.

Serviceability and Customer Support

All Cat Telehandler service points, including the combined transmission/hydraulic oil filter, are readily accessible and major components are easy to reach at ground level due to the overall machine design. A cab mounted service point allows access to the fuel fill, hydraulic oil fill, washer bottle, fuse box and cab air filter for routine checks.
