Handling the heaviest loads

By Dairy News

THE MASSEY Ferguson TH7038 Telehandler meets the high capacity requirements for lifting the heaviest high-density bales, offering fast and efficient cycles for loading as well as the power to tow a loaded trailer.

The TH7038 has a lift capacity of 3.8 tonne with a maximum lift height of 7 m.

It is equipped with a hydrostatic transmission and is powered by a 4.4 litre four-cylinder Perkins engine, which delivers 130 hp.

“This MF TH Telehandler takes our continuous improvement program to an ever greater level,” Massey Ferguson product manager John Russell said.

“The features of the MF TH7038 model deliver customers even higher performance, which allows them to carry out their work in more comfort, with greater productivity and with lower costs.”

It offers 190 litres/ minute hydraulic capacity for the fastest work cycles and is the ideal choice for contractors or co-operatives.

The fan inverter is available with an automatic option to keep the engine clean and working at maximum efficiency. This offers speed regulation depending on air temperature or can be adjusted to work at a preset speed, with the automatic mode selected via a button on the dashboard.

A unique four-range hydrostatic transmission provides low speed, high torque delivery through two mechanical gears and two hydrostatic ranges, giving operators the most accurate control during material handling.

An easy-to-set creeper function is ideal for operations that demand low speed at higher engine revs, providing increased control and accuracy for operations such as sweeping, feeding and straw spreading.

Cushion Retract is now fitted to the boom, ensuring a smoother action and prolonging the life of the components.

An additional electric control can be specified to provide a fourth and fifth service to operate demanding implements, such as straw choppers and feeding buckets.
