One of our leading rental companies, award winning KDM Hire continues to reach new heights in offering customers want they want when they want it, and in doing so have invested in the first Magni 19 metre telehandler to be sold in Ireland.
The Magni TH 55.19, a fixed telescopic handler especially suitable for demanding light industrial sites, was supplied by Overseas Plant Exports who were appointed as the official dealer for Magni in Ireland earlier this year, with A J Armstrong from Maghera looking after sales and service for the north of Ireland.
Powered by a Deutz 55 kW engine, it can safely operate on all terrains, rough and smooth, thanks to its 4-wheel drive and an automatic levelling system, which acts on both the wheels and stabilisers, while its hydrostatic transmission offers precision and manoeuvrability.
“The Magni 5,5.19 offers not only a longer reach, despite its compact dimensions, but also a class leading 5.5 tonne lift capacity compared to other competing brands on the market,” says OPE’s Dan Daly, “and we are delighted KDM Hire have added it to its already impressive hire fleet.” KDM Hire says the Magni, which represents the longest fixed reach machine in its fleet, is already proving popular with customers. Says KDM Hire’s Ryan McIvor ‘’it perfectly complements our existing telehandler fleet which includes heavy lift and rotating machines and will appeal to customers who need a longer reach and a heavier lifting capacity.
“Hire customers will find it easy to operate and will enjoy what is a spacious, well designed and comfortable cab that provides good all round visibility, essential when working on busy or restricted sites. It is also a very stable machine.” Indeed, its design incorporates a lowered chassis that drops the centre of gravity, providing extra stability, but despite that there is still an outstanding level of ground clearance.
The state-of-the-art cab comes with an adjustable steering column and a 7-inch touch screen which allows the operator to easily see a range of variables, including driving, lifting, outriggers and cab management, while all controls are logically positioned, easily accessible and simple to master.
Other features include pivoting stabilisers, which are quick and easy to deploy, while the boom stays in shape when retracted so there are no protrusions at the front of the machine. There’s also a load sensing system, an electroproportional joystick and a control system that complies with all the relevant safety standards. The Magni’s levelling system allows the operator to adjust the inclination of the machine so the entire load diagram is available for any type of operation; even when under normal conditions the slope of the terrain could affect lifting performance.
The machine’s hydraulics’ electric management system automatically selects the best engine speed for the required power, adding to its fuel efficiency. With booms that are made from high tensile steel, making them tough and flexible, while increasing load capacity, the machine is compatible with a wide range of attachments, being equipped with the R.F.ID system which allows for automatic recognition of attachments and the creation of the relative load charts.
