Iowa Mold Tooling Co. Inc. (IMT), an Oshkosh Corporation company added 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 ft./lbs. (22.3 tm). It has a maximum lift capacity of 5,700 lbs. (2,585 kg), up to 62 ft. 3 in. (19 m) of horizontal reach and a maximum vertical reach of 71 ft. 4 in. (21.8 m). The loader is capable of lifting 2,400 lbs. (1,089 kg) at its maximum horizontal reach.

A 22-ft. (6.7 m) 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, according to the manufacturer.

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.
