Xtreme Manufacturing debuted two new B-Class rough terrain telehandlers at World of Concrete 2019. The new Xtreme XR742 has a 7,000 lbs. (3,175kg) lift capacity, a maximum lift height of 42 ft. (12.8m) and a forward reach of 26 ft. 11 in. (8.2m), while the new Xtreme XR944, which replaces the Xtreme XR842, has a 9,000 lbs. (4,082kg) lift capacity, a maximum lift height of 44 ft. (13.4m), and a maximum forward reach of 28 ft. 10 in. (8.7m). Both models utilize a common chassis design that is also used on the Xtreme XR1055 and XR1147, improving familiarity across the product range and reducing spare parts inventory when operating a fleet. They feature a three-section boom with long-life boom rollers as standard, and both are electric over hydraulic, with fully automatic transmission. They also share a common control system with the XR619, XR1055 and XR1147.

Designed for tough jobsites, the XR742 and XR944 are equipped as standard with a Cummins 3.8L 74hp high torque Tier 4 Final engine. An optional 120hp engine is available on both models. Ideal for working on uneven terrain, both telehandlers have a ground clearance of 16.5 in. (419mm) and frame leveling up to 11° left to right, as well as a suspension seat as standard to ensure a comfortable ride for the operator.

Common with all Xtreme telehandlers, the XR742 and XR944 have 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. Offered with a choice of three cab configurations -  open; enclosed; or enclosed with heat and air conditioning - these models can be fully customized with a wide range of carriage, fork tine, tires and attachment options, including truss booms, pole grapples, buckets, and personnel platforms.

Weighing 27,000 lbs. (12,245kg)* and 28,700 lbs. (13,018kg)* respectively, the XR742 and XR944 are built to last. Both models feature a steel construction, as well as steel hydraulic and fuel tanks, and are backed by Xtreme's industry-leading 10-5-2 warranty. Shown as prototypes at World of Concrete 2019, they are scheduled to commence production at Xtreme's facility in Henderson, Nevada in Q2 2019.
