Magni: New Rotating Telehandler Offers Highest Lifting Capacity for Category

Magni 8.25 SH

Magni introduced its newest rotating telehandler, the RTH 8.25 SH, at Intermat in Paris, claiming it offers the category’s heaviest lifting capacity in the world at 17,600 lbs.

The lifting capacity is 4,400 lbs. more than the RTH 6.46 SH, which hit the market in 2017.

The 8.25 SH features a maximum lifting height of 81 ft., a maximum forward reach of 69 ft., and a total unladen weight of 52,910 lbs.

Its compact design measures 8.2 ft. in width, 20.3 ft. in length, and 10.2 ft. in height. The model can extend the outriggers in any length or configuration, and it features 360° of continuous rotation.

Magni says this model includes the technology and safety features of the RTH line with its attachment recognition system, load moment indicator, and boom tip camera with voice. With its panoramic views for operators from the cab, the 8.25 SH requires no special licensing beyond a forklift operator’s certificate unless a winch attachment is used. 

With its attachments, it can reduce the need for multiple machines on a jobsite, performing heavier lifting duties as a forklift and replacing a crane when used to lift materials to heights that a traditional forklift can’t reach. The operator can switch attachments on the boom tip to change the function of the machine from a forklift to a crane to a work platform.

The 8.25 SH is suited for steel erection, steel fabrication, precast concrete, rebar placement, oil and gas, energy, rail, shipping, barrier work, and masonry applications. It is set for a North American debut in May, initially available from Paramount Equipment in New Jersey.
