Ausa launches T 235 H telehandler at INTERMAT 2012
Ausa is extending its Taurulift compact telescopic range and will launch the new T 235 H at INTERMAT. The company will also show its recently launched T 144 H for the first time.
The ultra-compact telehandlers have load capacities of 1,350 kg and 2,300 kg respectively.
The Taurulift line combines the features of a vertical mast forklift with a telescopic arm. Ausa has developed the machines for manoeuvrability and mobility and said that their compact dimensions and geometry enable them to carry out their work comfortably in tight spaces.
The T 235 H is capable of lifting a load of 2,300 kg to a height of 4.5m and it is equipped with 4 x 4 x 4 traction, which Ausa said enables it to scale slopes with a gradient of 44% under a full load. The T 235 H comes fitted with a tiltable, retractable cab, which has been designed to make maintenance easier and cheaper. The machine is said to represent a real alternative to mini-loaders. Like the T 144 H, it is equipped with a Kubota engine with a Rexroth hydrostatic transmission.
Ausa claimed that the T 144 H 4WD is, at 2.5tonnes, the lightest telehandler in the market, and the only one in its class with a capacity to lift a load of 1,350kg to a height of 4m. Its design, weight and configuration are geared to compactness, with a 1.9m height and a width of just 1.4m.
