Bigge Crane has taken delivery of the 31.7 tonne/12 metre Xtreme XR7038 heavy duty telehandler, launched last year at Conexpo.
However before it shipped, the company loaned the machine to EC Source, an Ahern Rentals customer which needed to unload a heavy pole at its yard close to the Xtreme Manufacturing facility.
Bigge's latest Xtreme XR7038
The Xtreme XR7038 was required to unload one of the largest power pole sections destined for Project Neon, the Nevada Department of Transportation’s project to widen Interstate 15. Weighing 24 tonnes, the pole exceeded the capacity of the other equipment on site that day. The new machine carried out the lift quickly and easily before it was loaded up for shipment to Bigge, which now has 20 Xtreme telehandlers in its fleet.
