KITCHENER, Ontario Oct. 27, 2017—Provincial Lift Truck Inc. announced the arrival of North America’s largest capacity rough terrain telehandler to their location in Kitchener, Ont. The telehandler is the first of its kind in Canada, purchased for use in the energy sector in Ontario. The truck will be put into operation late November 2017 for the purpose of moving sea containers at a nuclear facility. This deal signifies solid growth for Provincial Lift Truck Inc. and a first for material handling in Canada.

Provincial Lift Truck Inc. facilitated the purchase of the Xtreme XR7038 rough terrain telehandler from Howell Tractor & Equipment Co. located in Gary, Indiana. Talks for the deal began in early June 2017 and finished up this October. With needs growing in Ontario for specialty, high capacity equipment, this is a sign of strong growth both for the local forklift firm as well as Canadian mining, energy, oil and gas industries. Provincial Lift Truck Inc. has met the demand for such equipment both locally and across the province, providing much needed access to high capacity forklifts and telehandlers.
The Xtreme XR7038 has a rated capacity of 70,000 lbs. (31,750kg) at 48-in. (121.9 cm) load centre and can lift up to a height of 38-ft., 2-in. (11.63m). As an award-winning telehandler, it contains a 300 horsepower Tier-4 Cummins engine, Long Life Boom Rollers and foam filled rough terrain tires designed for tough applications. To meet the unique needs of the customer, Provincial Lift Truck Inc. has specially designed a scale system up to 70,000 lbs. capable of reading up to 10 different attachments. The unit will also be outfitted with a custom winch to be used as a crane and a custom jib, both also designed by Provincial Lift Truck Inc. With continued GDP growth powered by the energy sector in Canada, the demand for high capacity equipment such as the Xtreme XR7038 is expected to increase.
When asked to comment on what the unit’s arrival means for the industry, Chris Glaubitz, President of Provincial Lift Truck Inc. said, “The arrival of a truck like the Xtreme shows the beginning of new opportunities for companies like Provincial Lift Truck. It means that the market for high capacity trucks is evolving and there will be an even greater need in the future for Canada. That is a need we are ready to address.”
