Telehandler feature: Dieci

The Dieci range of telehandlers offer versatility combined with performance. Farm Trader takes a closer look.

The Dieci Agri Star model is one of the most versatile models in the range for farming and agricultural applications

Throughout its more than 50 years in business, Dieci has focused on constantly researching innovative technologies in the agricultural, industrial and construction sectors to produce machines that are innovative, operator focused and expertly designed.

This focus on quality is backed by providing excellent after-sales support and service.

Dieci’s extensive range of telehandlers is known for its quality Italian design and manufacturing which have been tailored to perfectly suit the New Zealand market.

There are over 140 models and 20 product lines produced in Dieci’s ultra-modern headquarters, situated in the same region of Italy as Ducati, Ferrari and Maserati.

Telehandlers offer a cost-saving solution and efficient way to move materials by improving fleet management maintenance and decreasing the number of machines needed on the jobsite.

Thanks to the telescopic boom, it is possible to reach greater heights and distances and perform various jobs all while using the same vehicle.

Dieci designs, customises and manufactures attachments and machine options locally to ensure each telehandler is perfect for the specific application while also complying with Australian standards.

There are a range of models, with a variety of lift heights and capacities

Compared to normal tractors with front lifting, telehandlers have far greater reach, hydraulic capacity and manoeuvrability.

From the compact 2.5 tonne Mini Agri to the large seven tonne Agri Max, Dieci agricultural telehandlers excel in the management of work cycles and labour on any farm.

Characterised by excellent handling and fluidity of movement, the Mini Agri is built tough and excels in meeting the needs of small jobs such as greenhouses, nurseries, horticulture and poultry farming.

A step up from the Mini Agri, the Agri Star is undoubtably one of the most versatile models in the Dieci range.

Ideal for use on dairy farms, the Agri Star gives a choice of lift heights and capacities to suit different loading and handling priorities with two different models available.

The GD cab has improved vision, offers better operator comfort, and a range of additional optional features

In the middle of the range sits the popular Agri Plus.

This model is well regarded thanks to its simplicity, reliability and all-round performance, and fits very well into the contractor market.

Both models also offer the new GD cab, which is larger and more spacious, has increased all-round vision, improved shock absorption and vibration reduction, enhanced thermal and sound insulation, and a range of additional options from electrically adjusted and heated mirrors to additional external for improved vision and safety.

Designed for more intensive work volumes, the Agri Max guarantees optimal performance and reduced cycle times in environments such as nurseries, mills, producers of grain or feed, and recycling.

Dieci takes pride in building machines with the best components and a heavy-duty chassis that will last the distance.

Reinforced booms are made of high resistance steel, while load sensing and flow sharing distributors allow for more simultaneous movements during operation.

Dieci telehandlers can be fitted with a range of attachments, including forks, buckets, bale clamps, and shear grabs

Thanks to a wide choice of attachments, including forks, buckets, forks with needles, clamps for big bales and lifting hooks, Dieci can work with its customers to produce tailor-made machines to suit any requirement.

Each telehandler comes with a ROPS - FOPS (roll over protection/falling object protection system) approved cab with a roomy interior, luxurious air seats, powerful integrated air conditioning and heating, and complete 360-degree views.

Dieci cabs are designed to significantly improve the working conditions and comfort of the operator.

Dieci heavily invests in safety, therefore each telehandler has been manufactured to meet New Zealand design and compliance standards.

The manufacturer has an independent external engineer who signs off on every new machine or attachment that comes out, including attachments that have been developed in-house.
