Benefits and Features

Intuitive Control Layout

All day operator comfort and efficiency is ensured through our easier to use control layout.

Easier Access

Cab entry and exit is both easier and more convenient due to the well placed handholds.

Operator Protection

The machine provides full operator security with OROPS or EROPS protection.

Enhanced Visibility

The TL-Series cab has improved visibility due to the use of advanced virtual design techniques.

Joystick Control

The joystick allows three simultaneous boom functions enabling application customization for more than a dozen configurations.

Flow Sharing

Three simultaneous hydraulic functions are achieved using a full flow sharing hydraulic valve. A load sensing variable displacement pump allows full hydraulic power even at low revs.

Lift Height

The TL642 can pick and place bricks and materials to a maximum height of 42 ft. (12.8 m).

Reach

Job site obstacles present challenges demanding a machine to place loads at greater distances - the TL642 delivers.

Maneuverability

The TL642 offers improved maneuverability, allowing it to work productively in confined areas.

Steering Modes

The TL642 offers three steering modes (two wheel, crab and 4-wheel steer) to allow an operator to more easily position the machine. Steering modes are selected by a single three-position rocker switch. Steering position sensors are fitted as standard to all steering modes to be changed while moving.

Transmission

Th TL642 features a Cat Power-shift transmission.

Quick Coupler

A manual IT coupler is standard on the TL-Series machines. For optimum versatility, all machines are equipped with the hydraulic quick coupler, allowing the operator to more easily change non-hydraulic work tools without leaving the cab.

Hydraulic Services

Machines are equipped with Auxiliary Hydraulic services, allowing the use of hydraulically operated work tools. All TL-Series telehandlers are equipped with a single auxiliary hydraulic service and continuous hydraulic flow.

Work Tools

A wide range of work tools are available to meet most job site applications. Caterpillar Telehandler Work Tools extend the versatility of the machine. Built for performance and durability, these work tools deliver high productivity, long life and excellent value.

Ease of Access

Cost of ownership starts with ease of service. All Cat Telehandler service points are accessible and major components are at ground level due to overall machine design.

Daily Maintenance

Routine daily maintenance is now reduced to checking fluid levels and a walkaround inspection.

Service Intervals

Engine oil, filter changes and routine lubrication are now only required every 500 hours.

Reduced Componentry

With the reduction in the number of filters and extended service intervals, operating costs are the lowest in the industry.

Equipment Protection Plan

Designed to enhance your telehandler ownership experience with comprehensive coverage and peace of mind.

Access

All Cat Telehandler service points, including the combined transmission/hydraulic oil filter, are accessible and major components are at ground level due to the overall machine design. A cab mounted service point allows access to the fuel fill, hydraulic oil fill, washer bottle, fuse box and cab air filter for routine checks.
