Xtreme Manufacturing is debuting new additions to its line-up of telehandlers at trade show ConExpo-Con/Agg, including the XR50100-G tracked telehandler.
Nicknamed “Trackzilla” by the company, the machine has a maximum working height of 100 ft (30m) and maximum lifting capacity of 50,000 lbs. (22,679kg)
Developed alongside construction technology firm BZI, Xtreme says the “record breaking” height and lifting capacity ensures the machine is able to handle the “heaviest loads at the highest heights”.
James Harker, chief innovation officer at BZI, said, “Revolutionary innovations are developed by having great partners. BZI and its company InnovaTech are honoured to be invited by Xtreme Manufacturing to participate in their booth at ConExpo.
“BZI would like to express our deep appreciation to CEO and founder Don Ahern and the Xtreme Manufacturing team for collaborating and innovating with us to bring effective solutions to industry challenges.
“Working together we will continue to advance construction technology solutions within the steel industry.”
Alongside the XR50100-G telehandler, Xtreme is also showcasing its new Xtreme Glazier with a two-section boom, maximum extension of 65 inches and a lift capacity of 2,200 lbs. (997kg) retracted and 500 lbs. (226kg) extended.
Its existing range of compact, high-capacity, ultra-high capacity and ultra-xtreme-capacity telehandlers are also on show at the event.
