The new Dieci Apollo 25.6 Telehandler offers a number of new features the Italian company says are specifically engineered for Australia conditions.

Launched in May, the Apollo 25.6, which follows from the company’s earlier 25.6 NA model, has a sealed radiator compartment for less dust and clogging.

The 25.6 also boasts a tougher, more damage-resistant composite door, a lowered boom for improved visibility and a newly-designed split bonnet for improved access for service and maintenance.

The starter battery on the Apollo 25.6 has been repositioned to enable easier access for servicing and maintenance and safety has been further enhanced with new shielding added on the exhaust.

The new model also comes standard with a lockable tool box giving improved on-site security for equipment and tools.

Also standard, a newly designed forward and reverse joystick allowing operators the ability to control the movement of the machine without a gear change lever.

Dieci Director of Telehandlers Paul Jenkins says the innovative new feature provides far greater ease of use, less fatigue and more driver comfort.

"The Apollo 25.6 has been specifically-engineered for Australia’s rugged and unforgiving conditions," Jenkins says.

"Its sealed radiator prevents dust and dirt clogging the engine, while upgraded air conditioning provides improved operator comfort when working in hot and dusty environments.

"The modular split bonnet for fast maintenance access completes the attributes giving this new generation Apollo 25.6 telehandler the ability to handle anything you throw at it."
