NEW HOLLAND - LM Telehandlers
Designed specifically for the demands of tough agricultural and construction applications, the
LM732 and LM740 Series telehandlers feature rugged construction and increased durability.
Designed with side engines, plus increased lift capacity and lift height, LM Series telehandlers
combine the vertical lift of a forklift, the strength and speed of a wheel loader, and the
manoeuvrability of a skid steer, all in one dynamic machine.
LM telehandlers provide an innovative, one-machine solution for moving massive amounts of
material fast. Two models feature increased lifting performance, with a maximum lift capacity
up to 3200kg and 4000kg and a lift height up to 7.1m. The agility and reach allow the operator
to do things that skid steers, tractors, wheel loaders and forklifts can’t.
Side-engine design provides makes LM telehandlers well-balanced, more stable, faster, and
ultimately more productive. The side-engine design greatly improves visibility to the right and
rear of the machine, which are traditionally blind spots for telehandler operators.
When it comes to service, simplicity is built into the design with oil changes at 500 hour
intervals and easy access to key engine components.
The range is also engineered to suit New Zealand’s rugged working conditions. New Holland
has increased the size of the cooling system surface area to prevent overheating and ensure
continuous cycling even in hot, dusty conditions. On the LM732 and LM740 models, the cooler
pack surface areas are much greater than the previous models, and an optional reversing fan to
keep the coolers clear is available.
The larger, more spacious cab is designed for operator comfort with low noise levels and
outstanding visibility. The cab is rounded with a huge glass area and a large roof window that
provides a view to the load in the raised position. The cab has grouped controls, a seatmounted
joystick, and standard high-capacity heating and air conditioning for maximum
All LM models offer superior engine power and torque, increased capacity, greater lift heights
and a hydraulic performance, superior to many of the competition machines. These increases
can be fully exploited thanks to a combination of unique New Holland LM design features.
These include the patented driveline and corner-to-corner wheelbase chassis to ensure the
extra engine power and enhanced lift and reach capacities provide genuine productivity.
Both LM732 and LM740 are specified with a four-speed 40kph PowerShift transmission. The
Powershift transmission allows the operator to shift between ratios quickly, and is well suited to
applications that can include road work, loading bales in the field and fast re-handling.
There is a wide range of telehandlers to suit the majority of operator requirements and are
available in New Zealand through the New Holland dealer network. LM models are:
