The new Cat TH3510D Telehandler, with a rated load capacity of 3,500 kg (7,716 lbs.) and maximum lift height of  9,800 mm (32 ft.), features a compact design for optimum job site maneuverability and a three-section hydraulic boom with a low pivot pin mounting for maximum all around visibility. The new model combines field-proven Cat driveline components with a simple, highly efficient gear-pump hydraulic system to deliver long-term durability and reliable performance at low operating costs.

The TH3510D uses a new fuel efficient Cat C3.4B diesel engine rated at 100 hp (75 kW) which meets U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final/EU Stage IV emissions standards. A Cat C4.4 ACERT engine that meets Tier 3/Stage IIIA equivalent emissions standards is available for lesser or non-regulated countries.

A Cat four-speed power-shift transmission drives both of the TH3510D axles for permanent four-wheel drive, providing excellent traction in all conditions. A limited-slip differential in the front axle further aids traction in wet conditions. Oil-immersed dual axle disc brakes are used, and a parking brake works in conjunction with the front brakes. The braking system is designed to provide trouble-free performance in the harshest operating conditions.

The TH3510D operator’s station is designed for simplicity and durability, with all hydraulic functions controlled by a single lever joystick with F-N-R, allowing simultaneous drive and boom functions. Switches are clustered by function, and a new instrument panel and dash allow at a glance monitoring of machine performance. An optional advanced display monitor provides load charts as well as the feed from the rearview camera when activated, and  can be used to set operator preferences and perform diagnostic checks. Flat glass throughout simplifies window replacement, and the floor design allows quick cleaning with hose.

For added versatility, the TH3510D is fitted with a standard Cat Integrated Tool carrier (IT) quick coupler that is compatible with the entire Cat telehandler range. An optional hydraulically operated coupler is available. Additional options for the TH3510D include reversing sensors, a load weighing system, and a Load Management Indicator System “LMIS” for regions requiring it.

Easy serviceability helps reduce the TH3510D overall cost of ownership with all routine service points accessible from ground level and daily maintenance limited to fluid-level checks and a walk-around inspection.
