Extra Long Life ... The competition tries to meet the industry standards. At Taylor, we go far beyond the standard. The TS-9972 is designed to be superior in every way. Instead of the typical 600,000 cycle life, we offer you a 1,000,000 cycle life in our new spreader. Longer life means more cost savings to you with far less downtime. We even simplified the system to make it easier to operate, service, and maintain. Open Design...

A load moment indicator, in conjunction with accurate laser technology to read the boom’s precise position, replaces mechanical systems and is standard on the TS-9972. The vertical lift feature takes the operator effort out of lifting a load and extending the boom. A simple one step operation takes care of that for the operator allowing the operator to be more productive.
