The suspension system is shown in an augmented photo of a Toolcat 5600 carrying a lot up a hill with the utility grapple attachment.

It’s no wonder Toolcat™ utility work machines are comfortable to operate.

It all starts with the four-wheel independent suspension, which includes A-frames, suspension coils, shocks and suspension stops. Each wheel travels up and down independently, isolating the frame from changes in the terrain and providing a smoother ride, even at a top travel speed of 18 mph. It also reduces bounce, spillage and vibration when you carry materials and keeps attachments and implements level.

Specifically designed suspension stops provide support at maximum lift or payload capacity. Each time you lift a heavy load in the front or carry a heavy load in the hydraulic dump cargo box on the Toolcat 5600, the rubber stops are engaged to provide needed support for the job at hand. On the Toolcat 5610, the suspension stops are also engaged when you raise rear implements attached to the optional 3-point hitch.

The long wheelbase of Toolcat utility work machines allows the independent suspension of each tire more time to adjust between each impact when traveling over uneven ground. The suspension system also maximizes traction by maintaining tire-to-ground contact while isolating the machine from changes in terrain resulting in less impact to the frame, cab and attachments. This reduces bounce, spillage and vibration when carrying materials. In addition, the specially designed suspension stops provide support at maximum lift or payload capacity.
