Jobsites demand superior performance, and that's what the RS Series Telescopic Handlers provide. Lifting up to 12,000 pounds (RS12-42) with lift heights up to 55 feet (RS10-55), these machines provide the extra working capacity without sacrificing the comfort and features expected in the RS Series Telescopic Handlers.

Features & Benefits


Boom tip lift hook option is now available as a factory-installed option or field installed option. Proven welded box-section boom design makes the boom stronger than competitive models.

Operator's Cabin

ROPS/FOPS canopy is standard equipment; ROPS/FOPS enclosed cab is optional. Virtually 360-degree visibility increases safety and operating accuracy. Side and rear glass is standard equipment, enhancing operator safety.


Three steering modes – 4-wheel, 2-wheel and crab – enhance maneuverability and are easily changed by the flip of a switch.

Remote Boom Control

Remote Boom Control can raise/lower and extend/retract the boom, as well as start/stop the engine from the work platform or outside the cab.


Engine shutdown protection feature allows 30-seconds of run time for moving the unit to a safe location for loading or repair. Dana three-speed power-shift transmission is easy to maintain.


Dual-function, pilot-assisted joystick is standard equipment. Optional tri-function, pilot-assisted joystick allows the operator to set variable tilt and auxiliary function speeds. Auto-leveling feature keeps loads level when raising/lowering the boom.


There is a tool for every job, and the RS6-42 can power them all. Dynattach® Quick-Attach system allows quick attachment changes with unsurpassed ease.
