Wacker Neuson first telehandler for the North American market, the TH522 is a unique ground-engaging telehandler that offers a versatile three machine in one concept. Designed to be used with ground-engaging attachments and can work like a wheel loader, a skid steer with a compact footprint capable of using a multitude of attachments, and a telehandler with a lift height of 16-feet, and an operating capacity of 4,100 pounds.
The TH522 is powered by a 60-horsepower Tier 4 Final Turbo-charged Perkins engine that delivers performance and speed on the jobsite. The machine comes standard with a top travel speed of 19 miles per hour and auxiliary hydraulic flow of 18 gallons per minute. Increased versatility is available with the standard universal attachment plate and Faster quick-connect hydraulic connection block making the TH522 compatible with most wheel loader and skid steer attachments. A spacious cab system that maximizes operator comfort by increasing overall volume and visibility and a ergonomically designed joystick allows the operator to control all boom lift/lower, boom telescope/retract, roll/tilt function, differential lock and third circuit auxiliary hydraulic controls.
The Vertical Loading System (VLS) allows the operator to choose between two loading functions, bucket mode and fork mode. In bucket mode, the boom automatically retracts when the operator lowers in order to keep the load as close to the front axle as possible to minimize tipping situations. In fork mode, the boom extends and retracts automatically when the operator raises the arm in order to keep the load in a vertical plane.
