Caterpillar TH255 Super Compact Telehandler
February 4, 2008

The Caterpillar TH255 super compact telehandler offers compact dimensions and exceptional maneuverability for efficient work in tight areas. Despite its size, the TH255 has a rated load capacity of 5,500 pounds (2500 kilograms), lift height of 18 feet 4 inches (5.6 meters) and capacity at maximum reach of 1,850 pounds (839 kilograms). Equipped with a universal skid steer coupler, the TH255 can handle a variety of work tools including forks, hooks, buckets, augers and brooms. The TH255 also is designed with a spacious cab, allowing for easier ingress and egress, and the machine design offers exceptional sight lines from the comfortable suspension seat”despite the low profile provided by a cab height of less than 6 feet 4 inches (1.9 meters). Ergonomic control placement and single joystick control of hydraulics ease the burden on the operator. For maintenance the side-mounted engine allows easy access by lifting the clamshell hood and swinging a side panel that opens the way to the engine and service points.
