Additionally, the TL6 has a width of 5 feet and a height of 6 feet 5.8 inches. The compact dimensions of the TL6 enable it to access and work efficiently in areas with limited space.
The TL6 features a newly designed cabin with an overhead 5.7-inch color multi-information display and backlit rocker switches that control a variety of machine functions. A cab with a swing-out door, heat, and air conditioner are available for greater operator comfort. The CTL weighs 7,480 pounds with a canopy or 7,780 pounds when equipped with a cab.
Takeuchi Fleet Management (TFM) system comes standard on the TL6. The TFM telematics system is available during the machine's warranty period of two years at no additional cost. It provides a variety of data points including machine health and condition, run time and machine location. The user-friendly TFM system can help reduce downtime, control costs, perform remote diagnostics and schedule maintenance.
