Biltmore General Contractors took delivery of the first Magni RTH 5-35 to reach the shores of the United States.
“We are very proud to be the first,” Frank Geiser, president of Biltmore GC of Staten Island said, “In choosing a rotating machine we carefully looked at all of the options available. The Magni RTH 5-35 hands-down had everything we were looking for and more.
“The Magni proves to be a better choice for us for three main reasons. The first was the very impressive 114 feet of lift height, the second was the 11,000 pound capacity load chart and the third was the extremely affordable price.”
“Having a lift height of 114 feet and a capacity of 11,000 pounds gives us the ability to deliver more materials to more locations without moving the machine,” said Albert Calcaterra, general manager of Biltmore GC.
“Our current job site is extremely tight for space. The RTH 5-35 has the ability to sit stationary and perform its job lifting brick, mortar and more to many scaffold locations. Operating our slewing work platform from the platform enables our men to be against the building and reach a 180 foot span without an operator in the cab. Also being equipped with a radio remote control allows our operator / supervisor to be on the scaffold controlling the production all while delivering all the needed materials.”
“With the attachments and the capabilities this machine offers us, we are very sure we will complete this and other jobs way ahead of schedule. Needless to say this will result in savings of labor, fuel and the cost of renting other machines. Preliminary numbers show us that we made an excellent decision to purchase a Magni,” said Calcaterra.
The Magni Combi-Touch system gives the operator the option to use a touch screen or a joystick to control the machine’s operations and functions on five screens. Watching the operation screen lets the operator clearly see where his load is at all times, all while displaying the boom height, the radius and the amount being lifted.
“Paramount Equipment LLC is providing cutting edge technology in the rotating telescopic market. They have been excellent in providing me with a machine of excellent quality, the newest technology, innovative design with quality components along with a machine that does more than its competition all for less money,” Calcaterra said. “We need to work smarter and complete our jobs in a safe and swift manor. I believe the Magni RTH 5-35 will not only help us to achieve that, but will help to exceed our expectations.”
