The Wacker Neuson TH627 telehandler is designed to be a versatile, three-in-one machine, the company says.

It comes with a universal attachment plate allowing it to dig and carry like a wheel loader and use multiple attachments like a skid steer with a compact footprint. As a telehandler, it has a lift height of 18 feet 7 inches and lift capacity of 5,500 pounds.

The TH627 automatically adjusts load positions to prevent tipping and improve performance. Its bucket mode is used for loading and unloading in more open areas. The operator uses manual controls to raise a load, and when it is lowered, a load management system (LMS) automatically retracts the telescopic arm to keep the load as close to the front axle as possible.

For tighter situations, the machine has a stacking/fork mode in which the boom rises and telescopes simultaneously, with the LMS keeping the load on a vertical plane. The same goes for lowering the boom.

The TH627 is powered by a Tier 4 Final, 74-horsepower Kohler engine with diesel oxidation catalyst aftertreatment with no diesel particulate filter, no regeneration and no maintenance, the company says.
