Magni Telehandlers Moving into US Market
Italian telehandler manufacturer Magni will enter the US market full-force in 2016.
The company currently has one dealer in the country, Paramount Equipment LLC, in Union, N.J., but it plans to establish a company office in Florida by March of 2016 and is looking to sign up additional dealers across the United States.
Jorge Salas, a degreed engineer who is Magni’s managing director for the Americas, said that Magni intends to bring its full line of telehandler products to the U.S.
The range includes traditional fixed-body telehandlers, the HTH or Heavy Telehandler with maximum capacities from 22,000 lbs. to 99,000 lbs., and maximum lifting heights from 32’10” to 45’11”.
Magni’s lines of rotating telehandlers include the Smart Range, which uses pivoting stabilizers. The four models in this line all have a maximum capacity of 11,000 lbs. and maximum lifting heights that range from 59’0” to 82’0”.
Magni’s four Smart S Range rotating telehandler models have telescopic stabilizers, 11,000-lb. maximum capacity and maximum lifting heights from 68’11” to 82’0”.
The third group of Magni rotating telehandlers, the S Range, uses telescopic stabilizers. The five models in this group have maximum capacities ranging from 11,000 lbs. to 13,000 lbs., and maximum lifting heights from 78’8” to 131’4”.
Salas says that one of Magni’s key features is versatility that improves productivity while reducing the number of machines, operators, spare parts, and maintenance needed in a fleet.
That versatility is provided by a wide range of attachments that let one telehandler do many kinds of work. Among those attachments, he lists winches, work platforms, hooks, tire-handling clamps, buckets, forks, a jib with a winch, cable reels, cylinder handlers, handlers for mining-truck wheel hubs, and concrete buckets.
