IMT Expands Lineup of Hydraulic LoadersFebruary 3, 2015
GARNER, Iowa (February 3, 2015) – Iowa Mold Tooling Co. Inc. (IMT), an Oshkosh Corporation company (NYSE:OSK), is pleased to announce the addition of the IMT 28562 hydraulic loader to its lineup of hydraulic loaders. The new IMT 28562 loader offers customers another option for efficient handling of palletized materials in the building supply and construction industries.
The IMT 28562 hydraulic loader features the highest rating in the IMT lineup at 161,490 foot-pounds (22.3 tm). It has a maximum lift capacity of 5,700 pounds (2,585 kilograms), up to 62 feet 3 inches (19 meters) of horizontal reach and a maximum vertical reach of 71 feet 4 inches (21.8 meters). The loader is capable of lifting 2,400 pounds (1,089 kilograms) at its maximum horizontal reach.
A 22-foot (6.7-meter) hydraulic out-and-down stabilizer span provides customers with excellent stability for loading and unloading palletized goods, while a high lift-to-weight ratio allows for maximum payload on the truck.
The IMT 28562 loader includes a standard RCL (rated capacity limiter) 5300 system, which blocks load-increasing functions when full capacity is reached. The loader’s standard radio remote control comes equipped with an information center that provides continuous feedback on load moment and operation conditions.
“At IMT, we’re committed to helping our customers become more productive,” said John Field, IMT product manager of material handling. “The IMT 28562 hydraulic loader has the strength, reach and precision maneuverability our customers need to quickly load and unload building materials.”
Additional features of the new IMT 28562 loader include:
- 420-degree rack and pinion rotation.
- A rotation system that operates in a continuous oil bath to reduce friction and enhance life.
- A standard oil cooler to extend hydraulic system longevity.
- A counterbalance valve on each cylinder to stop motion in case of a hose failure.
The complete lineup of IMT hydraulic loaders also includes the 16000 and 24562 models.
The IMT 16000 loader features a maximum capacity of 5,825 pounds (2,642 kilograms), up to 42 feet (12.8 meters) of horizontal reach and a maximum vertical reach of 54 feet 1 inch (16.5 meters). The 16000 loader offers A-Frame stabilizers and top seat controls with optional radio remote control.
