The RTH 8.25 high capacity telehandler
Telescopic Handlers has introduced the RTH 8.25 SH rotating telescopic handler, which it claims has a higher capacity than any similar machine in the world. Built on the chassis of its 35/39 models, but with major structural components reinforced for strength, the machine can lift 5.3 tonnes at 25m height and 1 tonne at 21m reach. The RTH 8.25 SH, which weighs 24 tonnes, is aimed at the construction and maintenance markets.
On display for the first time in Europe is the RTH 6.46 SH, which boasts a maximum working height of 46m – the highest for a rotating telehandler in the world, according to the company. At its maximum height, the telehandler can lift 2.5 tonnes, making it comparable to a specialised crane while retaining the flexibility to also operate as a telehandler or access platform if fitted with a basket. At its maximum reach of 33.5m, the machine has a capacity of 200kg, making it particularly suitable for vertical construction in markets such as the US, where the company is bullish about the machine's prospects.
