Magni Telescopic Handlers announces it will be debuting a brand new, mining specific telehandler at MINExpo 2021. The new low profile telehandler, the TH U 5.8, is a fixed telescopic handler with features tailor made for mining environments.
Powered by a DEUTZ engine, the new TH U 5.8 can safely lift to a height of 26 ft. and has an incredible lifting capacity of up to 11,000-lbs. in an ultra-compact 17 x 8 ft. frame. The compact design makes this telehandler perfect for underground mining and use in tight situations.
This new telehandler comes standard with a special hydrostatic transmission that allows for precise movements and superior maneuverability. Designed for use on steep grades, the TH U 5.8 has a special braking system designed specifically for use in mines that complies with various safety regulations. A special 50 PPM catalytic converter filters exhausts from the machines, making it safer to work with in enclosed spaces.
Standard safety features on the fully air filtered and pressurized Magni cab include FOPS and ROPS protection, with the new mining unit containing an extra safety cage protecting the cab from falling objects. Additionally, each Magni TH U 5.8 comes equipped with an LMI load limiting system, that prevents operators from lifting unsafe loads. This unique mining specific telehandler has emergency stop buttons both inside, and outside of the cab for safety purposes.
The TH U 5.8 is compatible with a wide range of attachments including work platforms, jibs, winches, and forks. It is equipped with an RFID system which allows for automatic recognition of attachments and the creation of the digital load charts specific to them.
