Wacker Neuson adds a new ground-engaging telehandler to its growing line of material handling equipment
10 March 2017
Wacker Neuson is expanding its telehandler line with the addition of the TH627. The TH627 is the second model in the manufacturer’s line to offer a unique ground-engaging telehandler that is a versatile three-in-one machine concept. Designed with a hydraulic universal attachment plate (SSL), the TH627 can be used with ground-engaging attachments and work like a (1) wheel loader to dig and carry, (2) a skid steer with a compact foot print capable of using multiple attachments and (3) a telehandler with a lift height of 18-feet, 7-inches and 5,500 pounds lifting capacity.
The TH627 features a Load Management System (LMS) that maximizes performance and minimizes tipping situations by automatically adjusting the position of the load. The bucket mode, is used for loading and unloading materials with a bucket and operating in more open areas. When raising the load in bucket mode, the boom functions are controlled manually by the operator. When the boom is lowered, the LMS automatically retracts the telescopic arm to keep the load as close to the front axle as possible. In stacking/fork mode, when raising the load, the boom raises and telescopes at the same time, keeping the load on a vertical plane. The operator does not need to self-adjust the load in a tight situation. When lowering the load in stacking/fork mode, the LMS retracts and lowers the boom at the same time, to keep the load on a vertical plane.
Wacker Neuson’s newest telehandler is powered by a Tier 4 Final, 74-hp Kohler engine with Diesel Oxidation Catalyst (DOC) aftertreatment with no diesel particulate filter, no regeneration and no maintenance. The TH627 offers industry-leading service and maintenance access, reducing downtime and significantly shortens daily maintenance checks.
