SMALL IN SIZE, BIG IN PERFORMANCE
The new LM Series compact telehandlers work well in tight spaces and enable you to get the job done in hard-to-reach areas. The 75-hp LM5.25 and 101-hp LM6.28 measure just 70.8 and 79.2 inches wide respectively. With a turn radius as small as 11.2 feet, these compact handlers can operate in tight spaces. Heights of just 78 and 79.2 inches enable either machine to work in low buildings such as poultry houses. But do not think compact dimensions mean limited capacity. The LM5.25 and LM6.28 have maximum capacities of 5,512 and 6,172 pounds, and maximum lift heights of 18.9 and 20.8 feet respectively. This combination of maneuverability and performance makes these telehandlers more versatile than a tractor with a loader, and more efficient than a larger skid steer loader, ideally suited for mixed farming.
The 75-horsepower LM5.25 should not be taken lightly since it combines a narrow working width of 70.8 inches with a lift capacity of 5,512 lbs. (2,500 kg) and a lift height of 18.9 feet. The LM6.28 incorporates more stability and power with a working width of 79.2 inches and a 101-hp engine. With a 20.8-foot boom and a lift capacity of 6,172 pounds, the LM6.28 is able to handle all your jobs in those confined spaces.
HYDROSTATIC DRIVE SIMPLICITY
Compact telehandlers are ideally suited for handling materials and for duties that include numerous direction changes. The LM5.25 features a single-speed hydrostatic transmission, while the LM6.28 has a dual-speed transmission, both with an inching pedal. Use the single drive pedal to speed or slow the machine, with less need to operate the brakes. The inching pedal helps increase your precision and is ideal for applications such as stacking bales and handling.
HIGH PERFORMANCE FOR COMPACT MODELS
The LM5.25 has a 21.1-gpm hydraulic pump to power it through the tasks at hand. The LM6.28 delivers up to an impressive 29.0 gpm of hydraulic flow to meet the most demanding applications.
Among the most compact in its class, the LM5.25 is the ideal choice for operating in low buildings with narrow access. The LM5.25 has a low overall height of 76.1 inches with the standard 12.5x16.5 industrial tires and a slightly higher overall height of 78.3 inches with the larger 12x18 ag bar tires. The overall height of the LM6.28 is 80.3 inches with the standard 20-inch ag tires, or just 1.6 inches higher with the optional 24-inch ag tires. This makes these compact telehandlers low enough to get into low-clearance barns and buildings that a standard tractor with a loader or a skid steer loader may not be able to access. You can work in the field on barnyard without worry thanks to ample ground clearance — 10.6 to 12.2 inches for the LM5.25 and 13.8 to 15.4 inches for the LM6.28.
COMPACT STEERING MODES
Steering performance further boosts the appeal of these models. You can select two-wheel, four-wheel and crab-steer modes to ensure that you can get the job done no matter what terrain or environment you encounter. Four-wheel mode delivers a short turn radius of only 11 feet for the LM5.25 and 13 feet for the wider LM6.28, allowing you to turn around in tight spaces.
