CAT TH103 wont engage when accelerating

    I hopped on my company's TH103 telehandler yesterday and noticed when I stomped on the accelerator the machine would struggle and pop out of gear. If I eased on the accelerator the machine would slowly accelerate but never reach its full potential. I was in 3rd. I do not really know the anatomy of the transmission and hydraulics of these machines. It is older and has a gazillion hours on it. Anyone have any ideas as to why it wants to pop out of gear? Thanks.

    The transmission in your Telehandler is a ZF product. If you need help with troubleshooting, please feel free to give me a shout @ (215) 822-8300.
