The Traverse T12158X telehandler has a maximum load capacity of 12,000 pounds and a lift height of 58 feet, 6 inches. The landing height is also 58 feet, 6 inches, the company says, because of its traversing boom carriage that provides up to 70 inches of horizontal boom transfer. Maximum forward reach is 47 feet, 10 inches.
The 117-horsepower Cummins QSF diesel is mounted on a side pod for service access, curbside visibility, and ground clearance of 19 inches. The telehandler has full-time 4-wheel drive with limited-slip front axle differential. Its turning radius is 14 feet, 4 inches. The Dana VDT12000 Powershift transmission offers three speeds, forward and reverse.
Hydraulic cylinders have cushioning that dampens the end of strokes to avoid wear-and-tear and to prevent hard stops that could potentially spill a load. A single lift cylinder optimizes operator sight lines, and twin hydraulic lines control tilt and auxiliary functions.
Operator cab includes enhanced climate control, flat bolt-in glass, split door design, openable rear window, USB accessory plug, lockable storage under the seat, and water-resistant components for easy interior washdown.
