Cat TH514 TelehandlerCat
With a capacity of 11,000 pounds and a lift height of 45 feet, the Cat TH514 telehandler is ideal for construction, oil rigging and wind farming applications. A limited slip differential in the front axle provides added traction and allows the machine to work effectively in harsh terrain. The telehandler reduces both fuel consumption and heat generation, with a load-sensing variable displacement piston pump that delivers flow on demand. The side-mounted, turbo-charged C4.4 DITAAC mechanical control engine with 101 hp reduces emissions and runs cleaner. A transmission disconnect button on the joystick delivers full engine power to the hydraulics without manually disconnecting the drive.
