An Xtreme trio: three new C-Class telehandlers launch at World of Concrete
Xtreme Manufacturing has launched three brand new rough terrain telehandler models on their booth at World of Concrete 2020. The new C-class models, which expand the Xtreme product line up to 19 models, are the XR1347-C, XR1547-C and XR1555-C.
Designed as a replacement for the 12,000lb capacity XR1245, the new XR1547-C can lift up to 15,000lb (6803kg), has a maximum lift height of 47ft (14.3m) and a maximum forward reach of 31ft 6in (9.6m), and comes with outriggers as standard. The 13,000lb (5897kg) capacity XR1347-C is the same machine as the XR1547-C, however does not require outriggers.
Weighing 35,200lb (15,966kg) and 36,800lb (16,692kg) respectively, the XR1347-C and XR1547-C both offer frame levelling up to 11deg, and are dimensionally the same measuring an overall width of 101 in. (2.56m) and stowed length to the fork face of 21ft 3in (6.47m). The lifts have a ground clearance of 16.5in (0.41m) for tackling rough terrain and a turning radius of 12ft (3.66m).
The new C-class Xtreme XR1555-C is a replacement for the original B-class XR1255, offering 3000lb (1,360kg) additional lift capacity. For customers operating a fleet of XR1255 telehandlers with associated B-class attachments, Xtreme will offer the new design XR1555-C as a B-class variant, branded as the XR1255-B. The XR1255-B will benefit from the features of the new design, including an improved load chart, but will be compatible with existing B-class carriages.
The XR1555-C can lift up to 15,000lb (6803kg) and has a maximum lift height of 55ft (16.7m), and a maximum forward reach of 38ft 5in (11.7m). It features a new higher capacity fuel tank, which can hold up to 100 gallons (378L), increasing the work cycle between refuelling. Measuring 101in (2.56m) wide, the XR1555-C weighs in at 38,460lb (17,445kg) and offers frame levelling up to 11deg.
With a focus on commonality across the product line, the three new models share a similar chassis, cab, and electrical and hydraulic systems with other recently introduced models, including the XR843-B, XR944-B, XR1055-B, and XR1147-B. This helps to improve both operator and service technician familiarity with the Xtreme family of telehandlers, and also helps to reduce parts inventory for customers running a fleet of Xtreme units.
All three units are electric over hydraulic, and features Xtreme’s new modular cab design, which enables the cab to be easily switched from open to enclosed, or vice versa, with an optional kit. This provides customers with greater flexibility when operating their telehandlers in multiple environments.
