Ease of operation was extremely important in the design of the new TL642C. The single, pilot operated joystick is designed to maximize operator efficiency.
The joystick allows three simultaneous boom functions enabling application customization.
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.
The TL642C delivers high performance to meet your specific job site needs.
The TL642C can effectively pick and place bricks and materials to a maximum height of 42 ft. (12.8 m).
Job site obstacles present challenges demanding a machine to place loads at greater distances - the TL642C delivers.
The TL642C offers improved maneuverability, allowing it to work productively in confined areas.
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.
