TH12-55 - NEW

Construction telehandlers

Built for the toughest, most demanding projects, the TH12-55 is the biggest and toughest Telescopic Handler we offer with 55 feet of reach and 12,000 lbs. of lifting capacity. It's sturdy. It's durable. It's packed with unmatched strength and reach. With stabilizers standard on this beast, the TH12-55 is designed to carry even heavier loads at a forward reach, with added security and peace of mind. Plus, with a wider and quieter cab, simple-to-use joystick controls, and EasyStep—a more accessible step to get in and out with—it delivers all-day comfort and allows you to keep working from morning 'til night. We know how difficult it is to deal with challenging terrain and back-breaking conditions on construction sites, lumber yards, and wind farms; it's time you found a machine that can do it without breaking a sweat.
