BENEFITS & FEATURES
Operator Station


Control Layout
All day operator comfort and efficiency is ensured through our simple, easier to use control layout.

Easier Access
Cab entry and exit is both easier and more convenient due to the well placed handholds and step.

Operator Protection
The machine provides full operator security with OROPS or EROPS protection.

Enhanced Visibility
The TL C Series cab has improved visibility with its advanced design techniques.

Ease of Operation


Joystick Control
The joystick allows three simultaneous boom functions enabling application customization.

Joystick Control


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.

Performance


Lift Height
The TL642C can effectively pick and place bricks and materials to a maximum height of 42 ft. (12.8 m).

Reach
Job site obstacles present challenges demanding a machine to place loads at greater distances - the TL642C delivers.

Maneuverability
The TL642C offers improved maneuverability, allowing it to work productively in confined areas.

Steering Modes
The TL642C offers three steering modes (two wheel, crab and circle 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.

Power Train


Transmission
The TL642C features a ZF,WG98-TSC Power-shift transmission.

Versatility


Quick Coupler
A Caterpillar IT interface is standard on the TL C Series machines. For optimum versatility, an optional hydraulic quick coupler is available, allowing the operator to change non-hydraulic work tools without leaving the cab.

Hydraulic Services
Machines are equipped with Auxiliary Hydraulic services, allowing the use of hydraulically operated work tools. All TL C 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. Caterpillar 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. Contact your Cat dealer for available work tool options.

Machine Configurations

Tires
A wide range of tire options enables the machine to be configured to achieve optimum job site performance.

Cost of Ownership


Ease of Access
Cost of ownership starts with ease of service. All Cat Telehandler service points are accessible and major components are 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.

Equipment Protection Plan
