From compact to heavy-duty
By Chris Sleight05 February 2014
Ausa’s stand will feature its T144HX4 Plus compact telehandler and C500HX4 rough terrain forklift.
The T144HX4 offers a 3,000 lbs (1.36 tonne) lifting capacity and a 13 ft 1 in (4 m) lift height. It is fitted with a quick coupler for easy attachment changes and the company says its dimensions makes it comparable in size to a skid steer loader, but with the advantages of a telehandler – easier entry to the cab for the operator, less wear & tear on the ground due to its conventional steering and greater reach.
In contrast, the C500HX4 rough terrain forklift is the largest in Ausa’s range, offering 11,000 lbs (5 tonnes) of lift capacity and lift height of 22 ft 4 in (6.8 m). The machine includes Ausa’s Full Grip system which allows the machine to work in two-wheel drive, with four-wheel drive being engaged only when the ground conditions dictate it. This save unnecessary fuel consumption and tire wear.
Ausa will also have machines from its site dumper range on show.
