Wacker Neuson telehandler TH522, Multitool attachments

The telehandler as an equipment carrier

  • Telehandlers are used for a huge range of jobs, and Wacker Neuson offers an equally extensive portfolio of attachments. With our comprehensive and well thought-out attachment range, you can turn any model into a multi-functional all-rounder.
  • The “telehandler” investment can be used in a vast number of task fields, and as a result, it is very economical.
  • The machine can be used all year round (e.g. even for winter service), relying on many different attachments depending on the application.
Wacker Neuson telehandler TH522, vls (vertical lift system)

VLS (Vertical Lift System)

  • The VLS (Vertical Lift System) is a driver assistance system that makes the work easier for the operator when lifting or lowering loads by extending and retracting the telescopic boom semi-automatically when lifting and lowering, respectively, without the operator having to additionally control the telescopic function. This makes smooth and quick work possible.
  • The almost vertical lifting and lowering movement also makes the telehandler with the VLS very stable because the load does not enter into the overload area. Experienced operators can work even faster and safer with the VLS. Inexperienced operators receive valuable support for lifting and loading work.
  • The VLS (Vertical Lift System) can be categorised into two different modes: In the bucket mode, the telescopic arm always automatically retracts within the upper and lower area and within the upper area the telescopic arm does not automatically extend, this is suitable, for example, for loading works with bulk material. The stacking mode, the telescopic boom does not automatically retract within the lower area, in the upper area the telescopic boom automatically extends, it is possible to simultaneously lower and extend the telescopic arm, this is, for example, suitable for stacking work with pallets.
Wacker Neuson telehandler TH522, Joystick

Ergonomic joystick

  • The joystick lies securely and comfortably in your hand. As a result, control is direct and sensitive at the same time. In this way, the operator always has the machine and its key functions under control.
  • Alongside the standard functions, like selecting the travel direction and the speed, other functions, e.g. the differential lock, the 3rd and 4th control circuit, High-Flow, and all electrical functions, can be operated using the joystick, depending on the model. This enables the comfortable one-handed operation of attachments.
  • Concentrating the most important function on the joystick ensures comfortable working even over longer periods of time. This also increases overall efficiency when working with the machine.
