Dieci has introduced a new fixed boom telehandler to its Australian range as it rolls out cabin upgrades across new models of its Agri Farmer, Agri Star and Agri Max units.

The Agri Plus42.7 VS EVO2 GD telehandler has a capacity of 4,200kg and a maximum lifting height of 6.9m, lifting 200kg more than the only other model in the Agri Plus range available here, the Agri Plus 40.7.

Using an FPT 4.5-litre engine rated to 138 horsepower (103kW) (but peaking at 153hp/114kW) and able to reach a top speed of 41.7km/h, the loader was introduced to the Australian market this month.

Equipped with a hydrostatic single speed Vario EVO2 transmission with electronic control, the telehandler features four driving modes: Normal, Eco – which shuts down the two stage pump; Creeper – which uses full rpm but limited speed; and Loader, which allows full use of rpm and hydraulics but at a low speed.

The features come alongside a major revamp of the telehandler’s design, including new large windows and LED lights placed on the perimeter of the vehicle and on the boom. 

Changes to the interior include a sound-absorbing roof, dashboard and mat to insulate the cab from external noise, as well as a heated seat with three different suspension system options.

The air conditioning system has been redesigned with a double air filter and six vents combined with electric windows and the openable rear glass and roof.

The cab’s hydraulic shock absorption system uses four supports to reduce jolts and impacts in the cabin, while Its zero shock system reduces oscillations and ensures a high degree of driving comfort.

The telehandler also has a new electric handbrake, anti-fog wing mirrors and an 18cm display that monitors three wireless cameras.

The direction of travel and boom are controlled by the new CAN-bus single-lever joystick, but aside from that most of the machine’s stand-out features remain the same, including most of the key controls and the single-piece door with electric window.

The redesigned cabin interior is due to work from a design team that has worked on everything from helicopters to trains, scooters to coffee machines, giving operators more leg room and the option of adjusting the armrest and steering column.

Nicola Guelfo, head of industrial design for Italdesign, says the company worked to deliver an operator-centred work environment in revamping the cab on the Evo 2 telehandler range.

"We also worked on the materials, choosing particular plastics that, thanks to their soft touch, contribute to the overall high quality and comfort inside the cabin," he says.

"At Italdesign we believed that a good design has to be a useful design – it has to be a solution to a need, in the most elegant way."
