ENGINE UPGRADE Caterpillar distributor, Finning, showed the TH306D, the first - and smallest - of a new generation of telescopic handlers that meet latest emissions requirements with urea injection (SCR) and a catalyst (DOC) on the Cat engines.

This 2.8 tonne lift machine with 5.6m lift height also has a new hydrostatic transmission and a slightly larger cab than before featuring a new terminal display showing the machine's operational and usage, load chart and stability information. Auxiliary hydraulics are said to provide the oil flow needed for straw spreaders, feeding buckets and similar attachments
