According to Sennebogen, based in Charlotte, N.C., the new 305 Multihandler Series-C is the first telehandler with a hydraulically actuated high-rise cab (with an eye-level height of 13.3 feet) and the capability to attain a lifting height of 24 feet. With the optional two-part XL telescopic boom, lift height is 30 feet. The load-bearing capacity of the diesel-powered, 100-hp machine, says Sennebogen, is slightly more than 11,000 pounds. The machine is fitted with a hydrostatic drive system (all-wheel drive) and features three steering modes (front-wheel, all-wheel and crab). Attachments include an orange-peel grapple, forks (available with sideshift) timber grab, sweeper and various buckets.
