The redesigned Terex Fuchs MHL 340D Material Handler offers scrap handlers the ability to lift higher, reach farther and work faster than its predecessor. The MHL 340D achieves greater reach and lift capacities through a larger undercarriage and improved boom kinematics, and it employs an innovative two-circuit hydraulic system that minimizes power dissipation during operation to maximize machine performance.
The new boom and stick design on the MHL 340D’s loading system have been engineered for maximum lifting capacity.
With its newly designed undercarriage that includes larger outrigger cylinders and wider stabilizer support beams, operators will notice increased stability on the MHL 340D. This material handler is also designed with increased pivot, or swinging, torque which allows the machine to get up to full turning speed more quickly.
The design employs a dual hydraulic pump design — one pump is dedicated to joystick functions, and the other pump serves all other functions of the machine. This allows for simultaneous operation of dipperstick/grab, as well as dipperstick/boom, movements for increased productivity and faster work cycles.
Maintenance is simple as all major components are located within easy view and reach.
An easy-to-scan display offers operators the ability to instantly monitor essential operating data on machine functions, including fuel level, coolant temperature and hydraulic oil temperature for easy service and maintenance. The contoured, air-cushioned seat with lumbar support, as well as arm and head rests, allows operators to work for long hours with minimal fatigue.
