Farms & Farm Machinery - - Plant & Equipment -

Cat has re­leased the TH3510D tele­han­dler, a com­pact ma­te­ri­als han­dler with a 3.5-tonne ca­pac­ity and a max­i­mum lift height of 9.8m.

Stand­out fea­tures of the new ma­chine are a three-sec­tion hy­draulic boom with a low pivot pin mount­ing for im­proved all-round vis­i­bil­ity, and a sim­ple, ef­fi­cient gear-pump hy­draulic sys­tem that Cater­pil­lar says will “de­liver long-term dura­bil­ity and re­li­able per­for­mance at low op­er­at­ing costs” The TH3510D comes stan­dard with a Tier 4/Stage IV Cat C3.4B diesel en­gine, which pumps out 100hp (75kW).

“Lesser or non-reg­u­lated coun­tries” (which pre­sum­ably in­cludes Aus­tralia) will get a Tier 3/Stage IIIA en­gine.

Per­ma­nent four-wheel drive is pro­vided via a Cat four-speed power-shift trans­mis­sion, while a lim­it­ed­slip dif­fer­en­tial in the front axle fur­ther aids trac­tion in wet con­di­tions.

“Oil-im­mersed dual axle disc brakes are used,” Cat says, “and a park­ing brake works in con­junc­tion with the front brakes. The brak­ing sys­tem is de­signed to pro­vide trou­ble­free per­for­mance in the harsh­est op­er­at­ing con­di­tions.”

An In­te­grated Tool car­rier (IT) quick cou­pler that is com­pat­i­ble with the rest of the Cat tele­han­dler range comes as stan­dard on the TH3510D, and there’s also an op­tional hy­drauli­cally-op­er­ated cou­pler avail­able.

The cab is de­signed for sim­plic­ity and dura­bil­ity,

Cater­pil­lar says, with all hy­draulic func­tions con­trolled by a sin­gle lever joy­stick with F-N-R, al­low­ing si­mul­ta­ne­ous drive and boom func­tions.

“Switches are clus­tered by func­tion, and a new in­stru­ment panel and dash al­low at-a-glance mon­i­tor­ing of ma­chine per­for­mance,” Cat says. “An op­tional ad­vanced dis­play mon­i­tor pro­vides load charts as well as the feed from the rear view cam­era when ac­ti­vated, and can be used to set op­er­a­tor pref­er­ences and per­form di­ag­nos­tic checks.”

Flat glass through­out sim­pli­fies win­dow re­place­ment, and the floor de­sign al­lows quick clean­ing with a hose. Ad­di­tional op­tions for the TH3510D in­clude rev­ers­ing sen­sors and a load weigh­ing sys­tem.

Ser­vice­abil­ity has also been ad­dressed, with the TH3510D fea­tur­ing ground-level-ac­cess rou­tine ser­vice points and a daily main­te­nance regime lim­ited to fluid-level checks and a walk-around in­spec­tion.
