Digger Blogger | 12:56, Sun February 06 2011

Plant & Engineering Services Ltd, based near Exeter in Devon, have recently supplied a new Ausa Compact Telehandler to Walter Bailey Par Ltd and invited the Digger blog along to take a look.

The T204H machine is part of the Spanish company’s four model Taurulift range, and has a lift capacity of 2000kg with a lift height of 4200mm. The machine is powered by the popular Kubota V2403 four cylinder water cooled engine which produces 48hp.

These compact machines are ideal when working in tight and congested areas and their versatility is further enhanced with the option to use front wheel steer/ all wheel steer/ or crab steer.

The T204H is also fitted with a fully hydraulic quick hitch, a very useful addition when working in busy builder’s merchants which could require the operator to change from bucket to forks many times during the day.

The machine is also equipped with a very spacious heated cab, which can also include air conditioning as an optional extra, large glazed areas offer excellent visibility from all angles, the cab is also ROPS and FOPS compliant.

The Taurulift is now the primary forklift in the yard and offers many advantages over the current Linde rigid mast forklifts that have been used at the site previously.

The machine has also been supplied with commercial style skid steer tyres offering improved stability and increased durability, other options fitted to this machine include the addition of a Prolec on board weighing system with an in cab printer, this vastly improves the handling of coal, sand and other loose building materials around the yard.

Two buckets were purchased with this machine; one is the standard 0.75 cubic meter capacity, and the other is a larger 1.2 cubic meter capacity model.

Walter Baileys of Par, is a third generation company and is often described as the ultimate “one stop shop” operating as a coal merchant, agricultural merchant and builders merchant.

The Digger blog would like to thank Mike Murphy of PES Ltd and the team at Walter Baileys Par Ltd for their help with this post.
