Attachment-handling versatility, says New Holland, characterizes the design of the company's M-Series telehanders. The three new models — M427, M428 and M459 — have maximum lift-capacity ratings of 6,600, 8,000 and 9,000 pounds, respectively, and lift heights of 42, 42 and 45 feet. A low-boom design provides 360-degree visibility, says the company, and four-wheel drive and three-mode steering provide enhanced traction and maneuverability on the jobsite. Models M428 and M429 are available with optional stabilizers, but all units feature single-joystick control and two high-flow gear pumps that deliver 31.7 gpm. Estimated list prices for basic models: $85,000 to $100,000.
