Caterpillar introduced four models of telehandlers, the TL642, TL943, TL1055 and TL1255, which have a capacity range of 6,500 to 12,000 pounds and maximum lift heights of 42 to 55 feet. As a result of an alliance agreement with JLG Industries, the four TL Series machines are based on JLG designs and incorporate Caterpillar components. In North America, the four machines replaced B-Series machines previously manufactured by Caterpillar. Two smaller B-Series machines, the Cat TH220B and TH330B, will be offered in North America. The machines are designed for a variety of general construction, heavy construction and industrial applications. The TL642 and TL943 use the Cat 3054C Tier 2 engine, and the TL1055 and TL1255 use the Cat C4.4 TA engine.
