Operator's Cabin

Comfort comes standard on the DL12-55 Telescopic Handler, boasting 57 cubic feet of interior space.

* Choice of Dual-Function or Tri-Function pilot-operated joysticks that allow operators precise movement of ?heavy loads

* Dual-Function – fully proportional control for all functions.

* Tri-Function – operator pre-set auxiliary hydraulic flow rate for optimum attachment performance; trigger control overrides pre-set for full flow and faster cycle times.

* Lockable, two-piece cab door for security, ?communication and cross-ventilation.

* Standard lockable storage compartment for service ?items, such as work gloves, tools, blueprints and more.

* Choice of canopy or cab with heating and defrosting ? systems standard (air-conditioning optional).

* Un-matched panoramic visibility increases work-site safety and operator productivity and reduces operator fatigue.



Safety and efficiency are two of the most important factors on the jobsite. The DL12-55 Telescopic Handler provides the tools to achieve both effectively.

* Three steering modes – 4-wheel, 2-wheel and crab – enhance maneuverability and are easily changed by the flip of a switch.

* SAHR (spring-applied, hydraulic-release) parking brake is applied automatically when the engine is shut off, or by pressing a rocker switch.

Turning Radius (m) 12'2" (3.7)


Remote Boom Control

The Remote Boom Control option allows operators to control boom and engine functions from outside the cab.

* Remote Boom Control can raise/lower and extend/retract the boom, as well as start/stop the engine from the work platform or outside the cab.
