By Lindsey Anderson28 July 2020
New York City-based Adams European Contracting has taken delivery of the first Magni RTH 6.51 in the U.S. The contracting company now owns six Magni telehandlers.
The RTH 6.51 is the world’s highest lifting rotating telehandler with a maximum lifting height of 167 feet and a maximum lifting capacity of 13,200-pounds. The unit offers a reach of 113 feet.
Adams European Contracting is currently using their RTH 6.51 for the maintenance and restoration of school P.S. 333 in Manhattan. Limited space on this jobsite made it almost impossible for Adams to bring in a crane, making the Magni, with its tight footprint and lift height, the best solution for the job.
“We chose Magni was because there is no other competitor out there that can get to these heights and lifting capacities,” said Angelo Curto, the director of operations for Adams European Contracting. “Our Magni basically replaces all of our lulls and cranes on site. Overall, it saves me a lot of money.”
