Magni, the Italian telehandler manufacturer recently unveiled their newest offering: the five tonne, 35 metre, 360 degree telehandler – the RTH 5.35. Eazi Sales will present these telehandlers for sale to the African market in 2015.
The RTH 5.35 brings with it a plethora of improvements that, when launched at Intermat in 2015, will shake up the construction industry by making huge improvements to the work at height industries.
The new six section boom makes use of two external telescopic cylinders which will now leave free spaces inside for hoses, pipes and chains. Magni says the reason for these changes is that it allows better spacing to avoid fouling or rubbing, as well as making sure that hoses and pipes are not exposed to hits or accidental damages.
The RTH 5.35, when fitted with a platform attachment, is able to work at heights of up to 48 metres while still being in full control of the platform thanks to Magni’s patented remote control system. Having full control when working at such high heights ensures that workers are safe at all times; safety and security are, of course, always the biggest concerns on construction sites.
The operator’s cab on the new RTH 5.35, much like with other Magni machines, comes with a full vision glass. However, on the RTH 5.35, the cab has been moved forward on the superstructure, which now provides the operators with better visibility for when they are travelling on roads. This is just another way that Magni is making efforts to ensure that safety is always a priority.
The booms on the new RTH 5.35 are ahead of the curve and make use of software that controls the 5th section. This system is thought to have the best load chart, with both horizontal and vertical extensions, and provides the extension of the 5th only when it is necessary and in a proportional manner to the boom angle, which is something we have not seen before on telehandlers. It’s an exciting innovation and one we look forward to in 2015!
