US based Xtreme Manufacturing unveiled the production version of its new 26 metre/5.4 tonne XR1585-C fixed frame telehandler at the World of Concrete exhibition in Las Vegas today.
The new machine, shown as a prototype at Conexpo last year, features a five section boom, with rollers rather than wear pads, and offers a 20.4 metre forward reach. It has an overall weight of 29.7 tonnes, an overall width of 2.6 metres, and a stowed height of 2.7 metres. Power comes from a Cummins Tier 4 Final diesel engine.
The XR1585-C also features a new patent pending option, the Operator Station, a one person platform attached to the rear of the fork carriage, from which a person can operate all of the machine's boom functions via a wireless RF pendant type remote controller. The operator travels with the load, so that he is better placed to position the load at height.
Another new patented feature is the Coordinated Motion boom control function which uses two new sensors on the boom to coordinate the horizontal and vertical boom operation to achieve a true horizontal or perfect vertical fork motions, regardless of the slop angle of the chassis. It is also available now on the Xtreme XR944-B and XR1147-B telehandlers and will be rolled out across the range during the year. The XR1585-C will enter full production by the end of the year.
