Xtreme Manufacturing has introduced the world’s tallest fixed-boom telehandler, the XR1585-C with a maximum lift height of 85 feet.

The company also presents a new load positioning device for extreme heights. 

The new XR1585-C is the first Xtreme telehandler to utilize a five-section boom design. Capable of lifting loads weighing up to 15,000 lbs, the model benefits from a 67-foot maximum forward reach and is available with a choice of fixed, fork positioning, swing or side tilt C-class carriages.

Weighing 65,500 lbs, the XR1585-C is powered by a 4.5L Cummins 173-hp Tier 4 Final diesel engine for optimum rough-terrain capabilities, and features a large capacity 100-gallon fuel tank.

Utilizing a newly designed chassis, specific to this model, the XR1585-C is 102 in. wide, has a stowed height of 10 ft 1 in, and a turning radius of 16 ft 8 in, and has wide stance outriggers as standard for maximum stability.

With a hydraulic flow of 49 gallons per minute, and a hydraulic pressure of 4,000 psi, the XR1585-C can be fitted with a wide range of C-class attachments, including pole grapples, sling mounts, truss booms, buckets and personnel platforms.

For its customers with B-class attachments, Xtreme is offering a version of the XR1585-C with a B-class carriage, known as the XR1285-B, with a reduced 12,000-lb maximum capacity.

Like all Xtreme telehandlers, the XR1585-C offers 360-degree visibility from the cab, a fully rated boom lift point, and long-life boom rollers for smooth operation. The XR1585-C can be configured with a choice of open cab, enclosed cab and enclosed cab with heat and AC, as well as various tires, fork tines, and options, including telematics.

To accompany the launch of the XR1585-C, Xtreme is also showcasing a new concept designed to make it easier to precisely position loads at extreme heights.

A newly designed, patent-pending operator station has been fitted to the rear of the XR1585-C carriage, enabling the operator to travel with the load to height for enhanced positioning control. Using a wireless RF pendant, the operator can control all boom functions from the platform to safely and efficiently place the load at height. 

Full production of the new model is expected by late this year.
