Powered by a Case naturally aspirated diesel engine rated at 60kW and with an operating weight of 9,900kg, the TX130-33 telescopic handler is the smallest model in the Case range. There is also a turbo version of the model rated at 71kW.
The TX130-33 turbo has a load capacity of 3,300kg, a maximum lift height of 13m, and a forward reach of 8.75m. Unlike the larger models in the range, the TX130-33 has narrow stabilizers that lower to the front of the machine rather than out at the sides, thereby allowing greater access to restricted sites.
Powershift transmission with four forward and three reverse gears allows travel speeds up to 34km/h while also being able to deliver smooth operation and quick cycle times during repetitive material handling. Load-sensing hydraulics ensure maximum power is delivered where and when required.
The extra-long wheelbase enhances the stability of the telescopic handlers, as does the over-dimensioned counterweight and the low centre of gravity and low boom fitting point, which also improves visibility to the rear. The strong boom construction ensures good load distribution while reducing component stress.
The ROPS/FOPS cab has an easy-to-use control lever that operates all hydraulic functions. Large glazed areas, including a split door, give the operator optimum all-round visibility. Audible and visual warnings ensure safe placement of heavy loads at full height or reach.
With a choice of steering modes — two-wheel, four-wheel or crab steer — and a turning radius of 3.89m, the TX130-33 is particularly suitable for sites with restricted access.
