Xtreme Manufacturing introduced additions to its lineup of telehandlers at CONEXPO-CON/AGG, including the XR50100-G tracked telehandler.
Nicknamed “Trackzilla” by the company, the machine has a maximum working height of 100 feet, maximum lifting capacity of 50,000 lbs. and forward reach of 75 feet.
Developed alongside construction technology firm BZI, Xtreme says the “record breaking” height and lifting capacity ensures the machine is able to handle the “heaviest loads at the highest heights.”
James Harker, chief innovation officer at BZI, said, “Revolutionary innovations are developed by having great partners. BZI and its company InnovaTech... would like to express our deep appreciation to CEO and founder Don Ahern and the Xtreme Manufacturing team for collaborating and innovating with us to bring effective solutions to industry challenges.
“Working together we will continue to advance construction technology solutions within the steel industry.”
Alongside the XR50100-G telehandler, Xtreme is also showcasing its new Xtreme Glazier with a two-section boom, maximum extension of 65 inches and a lift capacity of 2,200 lbs. retracted and 500 lbs. extended.
In 2021, Xtreme introduced the world’s tallest fixed-boom telehandler, the XR1585-C, with a maximum lift height of 85 feet.
