New Cat C-Series telehandlers

Cat C-Series telehandler

New engines and transmissions for Cat TH414C, TH417C and TH514C telehandlers

POWERED by a new 76kW (101hp) Cat C3.4B engine that meets EU Stage IIIB emission standards, the new Caterpillar TH414C, TH417C and TH514C telehandlers incorporate a number of new features that are said to increase performance, versatility, ease of operation, and serviceability.

Maximum lift height for the new models ranges from 13.7m to 17.3m, while maximum load capacity ranges from 3,700kg to 4,999 kg. For optimum performance and enhanced safety, each new machine has a long wheelbase, low center of gravity and compact turning radius.


For optimum utilization, the new C-Series models can handle a wide range of Cat work tools via the standard Integrated-Tool-Carrier coupler, while an optional hydraulic coupler allows the operator to change non-powered work tools from the comfort and safety of the cab.

For powered tools, a selectable, continuous-flow auxiliary hydraulic system ensures productive performance. The auxiliary system provides an intermittent flow of 80 litres/min and a continuous flow of 60 litres/min at maximum pressure of 250 bar.

The powerful implement hydraulic system for C-Series telehandlers features a new torque-regulated/load-sensing, variable-displacement axial-piston pump and a full-flow sharing valve that permits the operator to engage three hydraulic functions simultaneously. For enhanced control, the system allows the development of full hydraulic power at low engine speeds, facilitating the precise placement of heavy loads.

Moreover, the new hydraulic system is said to offer enhanced value through increased production potential, fuel savings, longer component life and reduced sound levels.

The C-Series models’ spacious, comfortable cabs feature intuitive controls, including a single, low-effort, electro-hydraulic joystick that provides proportional and simultaneous boom functions and auxiliary functions, as well as directional and range controls for the new four forward/three reverse powershift transmission that provides travel speeds up to 30km/h (18.6 miles/h).

Adding to the controllability of the new Cat telehandlers is a three-mode steering system, which permits the operator to precisely position the machine, promoting job-site efficiency and safety. In addition, strategically placed hand-holds and steps are designed to provide safe, convenient cab entry and exit, and the operator is protected with an enclosed roll-over protective structure.

To reduce routine maintenance and overall operating costs, Cat C-Series telehandlers feature 500-hour engine oil change intervals, maintenance-free driveshafts, and grouped grease fittings for the rear-axle cradle and compensating cylinder. All filters are easily accessible, and a service menu is available via the keypad and LCD monitor.
