The Dieci Apollo 25.6 telehandler has been specifically designed to deliver efficiency and durability when working across applications in the construction, mining and agriculture and forestry industries.

Boasting a range of features, the machine comes with a sealed radiator compartment to minimise dust and clogging; a damage resistant composite door; lowered boom for improved visibility and safety; and a newly designed split bonnet for improved access for service and maintenance.

With a maximum capacity of 2500kg, it can lift to heights of up to 5.78m and reach a top speed of 26km/h.

“The Apollo 25.6 has been specifically engineered for Australia’s rugged and unforgiving conditions,” Dieci Telehandlers director Paul Jenkins said.

“[From] its sealed radiator, to improved air conditioning for operator comfort and modular split bonnet for fast maintenance access, the Apollo 25.6 is in a class of its own.”

The model’s starter battery has been repositioned, further enabling easy access for servicing and maintenance.

Safety has also been improved through the addition of shielding added on the exhaust.

The Apollo 25.6 comes with a lockable tool box allowing equipment and tools to be stored securely onsite, as well as a forward and reverse control on the joystick as standard inclusions.

“This new feature allows the operator to control the forward and reverse movement of the machine without having to take their hand off the joystick and use a gear change lever,” Jenkins said.

“This provides far more driver ease of use, less fatigue and more driver comfort.

“Whether your jobsite is in the Pilbara, Tasmania or western Sydney, the new generation Apollo 25.6 telehandler has the attributes to handle anything you throw at it.”
