Xtreme launches new telehandler at ConExpo
By Lindsey Anderson10 March 2020
Xtreme Manufacturing used ConExpo to launch a new 17,000-pound capacity telehandler. The XR1734-C is the fourth model in the company’s new C-class lineup, which extends the Xtreme’s total product offering to 22 units.
The Xtreme XR1734-C has a 17,000 lbs. (7,711kg) lift capacity, a 34 ft. (10.3m) maximum lift height, and a forward reach of 17 ft. (5.1m). Weighing 33,360 lbs. (15,131kg), the XR1734-C is powered by a Cummins 3.8L 120hp Tier 4 Final diesel engine, and has 11° frame leveling (left-to-right).
The XR1734-C joins other recently launched models, including the XR1347-C, XR1547-C and XR1555-C, which were shown at World of Concrete this year.
With a focus on commonality across the product line, the XR1734-C shares 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, XR1347-C, XR1547-C and XR1555-C. 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, the company said.
All of the new 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.
The new cab has also been upgraded with a more modern, user-friendly design, and includes a USB port for charging cell phones and other devices. Additional air vents have been installed throughout the cab for increased air conditioning circulation. The new design cab, which is now fitted to all Xtreme models from the XR843-B to the XR1734-C, has new storage pockets for carrying straps, chains and other items securely on the lift.
The XR1734-C is available with either foam filled or solid tires, and is offered with a choice of three cab configurations – open; enclosed; or enclosed with heat and air conditioning. A wide range of C-class attachments are available, including pole grapples, sling mounts, truss booms, buckets and personnel platforms, in addition to the range of fixed and fork positioning carriages and fork tines to customize the lift for a variety of applications.
Common with all Xtreme telehandlers, the new XR1734-C has 360° operator visibility from the cab, intuitive controls that enable the operator to keep one hand on the steering wheel at all times, and a machine-rated boom lift point for safe handling of suspended loads.
Xtreme is also providing a sneak preview into two new telehandler models. The company is displaying renderings for the new XR1285-B and XR2585-B telehandlers that both offer a maximum lift height of up to 85 ft. (25.9m), and 12,000 lbs. (5,443kg) and 25,000 lbs. (11,339kg) maximum lift capacities respectively.
The he XR1734-C will enter production in Q2 2020 at Xtreme’s Henderson, NV manufacturing facility.
