Magni develops first fully remote-controlled telehandler


Collé Rental & Sales, the official importer of Magni telehandlers in the Benelux, Germany and Austria has presented the first fully remote-controlled Magni rotating telehandler. Driving, stabilizing (also extend and retract of the stabilizers) and all of the hydraulic functions of the machine can be operated with the radio-controlled remote.

Ron V.d. Tillaar, owner of V.d. Tillaar Gevelmontage explains the reason behind his decision to buy this Magni telehandler: “Thanks to the user-friendly remote, I have full control of the Magni 5.26S. At one of my last projects I independently connected the elements, transported the elements internally and mounted them directly. Thanks to the radio remote control, I can help from the workplace and is a rigger unnecessary. It works more efficiently, the benefits speak for themselves!”

The radio controlled remote has a clear classification for the three different function groups (stabilizing, transmission and hydraulic functions). These groups give a full control of the telehandler. The stabilizers can be controlled with the remote control and also the machine can be driven directly. Once stabilized, all the functions can be operated and it is possible to rotate the upper structure, lift the load, tilt the forks, and operate the accessories.

The remote control also works fully with the workbasket. For safety reasons, the drive functionality can only be operated in transport position. The remote control function is optional on all of Magni’s models.
