The Magni RTH Rotating
The Magni range is at the pinnacle of innovation. Not only do they make the most beautiful looking machine but the worlds highest and heaviest lifting as well. With an Italian pedigree and decades of experience and innovation the Magni team is dominating worksites globally.
A true multitasker onsite this telescopic handler doubles up as an off-road crane and an aerial work platform and can accept a variety of attachments including winches, buckets, grabs and more.
Lift capacities range from 4-13 tons and lift height from 18-51 meters for the RTH range.
Choosing Magni Smart or SH? What is the difference?
The smart series of pivoting stabiliser legs are a lower cost option and extremely compact when closed. The stabiliser legs do not protrude beyond the machines body, so clearance is not affected. The SMART series has a fixed footprint and cannot lift as much as the SH series.
The SH series of scissor stabilisation guarantees perfect grip and any terrain and requires very little space to stabilise. Live load charts are worked out for the specific lift on the full 360-degree overview which includes scissor legs at different distances and angles, truly superb and an amazing safety innovation.
Why a telehandler makes so much more sense than a crane
A telehandler can be operated onsite by anybody who has been trained on the machine and with the live load charts and RFID recognition for each attachment safety is never compromised. Cranes and operators are expensive and its not uncommon for a site manager to put off doing jobs until a crane arrives then rushing through them to maximise the cranes expense onsite. This can be frustrating and a real challenge as a meticulous balancing act is required from various trades and stakeholders onsite at the same time all trying to rush their job. There is an easier more cost-effective way.
Magni telehandler vs 12-ton lift crane
A 12-ton crane is bulky and not very manoeuvrable. Once set up its not a simple task to shift and this often involves lots of wasted time and resources. A telehandler hired for a week equates to a 12 ton crane hired for a day in most cases. Wasting no time a telehandler can get to work onsite and be used for a variety of tasks including unloading materials, lifting and shifting. When the real lifting is required the stabilisers can be used and the machine is able to move with ease onsite and can be set up in mins compared to a crane.
A combination of their ease of use and versatility makes them a wise choice. The hirer benefits from secondary costs like reduced downtime, lower hire prices and smarter operations. When it comes to telehandlers versus cranes, a telehandler saves you money every time
Is there an electric telehandler option available in Australia ?
Magni has produced a zero emissions electric telehandler option. The RTH range has a twin energy system allowing the machine to operate with either electric or diesel mode. This makes it ideal and incredibly safe for working inside buildings and enclosed areas. This eliminates the need for expensive ventilation devices. Magni has the solution.
