US maintenance and restoration contractor Adam’s European Contracting has taken delivery of the first 51 metre/six tonne Magni RTH 6.51 telehandler. The company placed the order prior to the machine being unveiled at this year’s Conexpo (see: 51 metre Magni).
The 360 degree RTH 6.51 is the world’s highest reaching telehandler. With its stabilisers fully extended, it can take its maximum capacity to a height of just over 21 metres or to a radius of 11 metres. It can also handle 2,000kg at its maximum 51 metre height and 300kg to a maximum outreach of 34.5 metres.
Shortly after delivery the telehandler was supplied with its 2,000kg jib to work in place of a crane on a restoration project at a school in Manhattan, and was chosen for its reach and ability to work in restricted site conditions.
Based in Brooklyn, Adam’s European Contracting specialises in exterior brick, stone, stucco and masonry renovation throughout New York City. The new RTH 6.51 will join five other Magni telehandlers in the company’s fleet, it was also the first company to take delivery of the 46 metre Magni when it was launched at Conexpo 2017.
