xtreme telehandler

The highest-capacity telescopic handler featured in the 2012 Lift and Access Showcase walkarounds was Xtreme Manufacturing's XR3034. Designed as a pick-and-carry telehandler, it does not have outriggers, so all capacities are on rubber. The forklift operator can lift the Xtreme telehandler's maximum capacity of 30,000 lbs. to a height of 27 ft., or lift 12,000 lbs. to its maximum lift height of 34 ft. The forklift will handle that same 12,000 lbs. at its maximum forward reach of 17'6".

Only about a decade ago, 10,000-lb. telehandlers were the largest commonly seen telehandlers, but engineering feats over the years have more than quadrupled these machines’ capacities. The 2012 Lift and Access Showcase & Symposium featured walkaround demonstrations of four larger telescopic handlers that ranged in capacity from 10,000 to 30,000 lbs. Telehandlers featured in the demonstrations included the 10,000-lb. capacity JCB 510-56 Loadall, the 12,000-lb. capacity JLG G12-55A, the 20,000-lb.
