Ausa T144 H Plus: The Introduction
Gone are the days when farming equipment and machinery were eye-sores. Nowadays, they’re eye-candies in their own right because of their superb design and excellent details. At first look, you may even have mistaken them for off-road compact SUVs, but this doesn’t mean though they’re just about aesthetic qualities because they’re generally functional as well. To appreciate the transformation that these equipment have gone through, let’s take a look at one that has gained the approval of professional reviewers and “ordinary Joes and plain Janes” alike. Voila: the Ausa T144 H Plus Compact Telehandler. Now, we know the drill and many info out there is probably puffed up. Rest assured that we’ve got this covered and we made sure that this review is as detailed as it can be.
Ausa T144 H Plus: Key Features
Impressive and fuel efficient engine
It can be said that the Ausa T144 H Plus is a class-act when it comes to power and fuel consumption thanks to its 22.7kW Kubota engine which is known for its powerful, low fuel consumption, and low noise attributes. With this, you can say that this telehandler is perfect for farming, agriculture, and even construction tasks.
With its surprising user-friendly operation and high versatility, you can easily trump rough terrains. Though limited in size, the Ausa T144 H Plus can well compete with its bigger and more equipped counterparts at a lower base and maintenance price. That’s compact power that can help you save a substantial amount of cash along the way.
Though small, the cabin, as well as the control system of the Ausa T144 H Plus, are fully optimised for ergonomics. The cabin itself is roomy and convenient and the operator controls are placed in such a way that they are easily accessible to minimise fatigue in the process. With this, you can be sure that productivity is optimised as well.
Excellent hydrostatic transmission
The Ausa-exclusively designed hydrostatic transmission technology delivers an anti-slip capability that is automatically activated when the situation calls. With this, the four-wheel drive transmission experiences an instant boost and as this takes place, fuel consumption lowers and tire wearing is reduced.
The Ausa T144 H Plus can do a lot of things that bigger backloaders and skid steer loaders just cannot. This is because it boasts of exceptional traction and can work on basically any ground condition. With its reliable steering wheel axle and low ground pressure, they accumulate very minimal ground disturbance and low centre of gravity you can achieve exceptional productivity even on uneven terrain.
This compact telehandler is well able to keep loads more secure since its hydraulic system somewhat creates a suspension system for the boom. The former buffers the boom when traversing through rough terrain; therefore, allowing you to achieve stability throughout your ride.

Ausa T144 H Plus: The Verdict
The Ausa T144 H Plus is an exceptional equipment that has reversed the trend of bigger is always better and for this reason, many farm owners and even contractors choose them over their bigger and more equipped counterparts. Because of the exceptional benefits that it brings, it is the machine of choice of large projects not only because of their superb functionality but also because of its amazingly affordable price. On the other hand, this doesn’t mean that they don’t have room for improvement; for one, I think they need to improve their cab and make additional tweaks with regards to safety. A more sturdy frame can help address this matter. All in all, though, this is a great buy that delivers unbelievable benefits.
