All day operator comfort and efficiency is ensured through our simple, logical control layout.

Cab entry and exit is both easier and more convenient due to the well placed handholds.

The machine provides full operator security with OROPS or EROPS protection.

The TL-Series cab has improved visibility due to the use of advanced virtual design techniques.

The joystick allows three simultaneous boom functions and operates the auxiliary hydraulic function. It allows the option of a second auxiliary service for the use of work tools that require more than one hydraulic service.

Three simultaneous hydraulic functions are achieved using a full flow sharing hydraulic valve. A load sensing variable displacement pump allows full hydraulic power even at low revs.

The TL943 can effectively pick and place materials to a maximum height of 43 ft. (13.1 m).

Job site obstacles present challenges demanding a machine to place loads at greater distances - the TL943 delivers.

The TL943 offers improved maneuverability, allowing it to work productively in confined areas.

The TL943 offers three steering modes (two wheel, crab and circle steer) to allow an operator to more easily position the machine. Steering modes are selected by a single three-position rocker switch. Steering position sensors are fitted as standard to all steering modes to be changed while moving.

The TL943 features a Cat PG145 power-shift transmission.

A manual IT quick coupler is standard on the TL-Series machines. For optimum versatility, an optional hydraulic quick coupler is available, allowing the operator to more easily change non-hydraulic work tools without leaving the cab.

A wide range of work tools are available to meet most job site applications. Caterpillar Telehandler Work Tools extend the versatility of the machine. Built for performance and durability, these work tools deliver high productivity, long life and excellent value.
