In production since 1997, more than 2,300 ATLAS vehicles have been fielded to the U.S. Army and Army Reserves to support combat operations. The ATLAS is built to reach into trucks or shipping containers, lift loads over obstacles, and pick up loads from both above and below grade. Loads of up to 10,000 pounds can be lifted as high as 17 feet. These rugged material handlers were made to transport your materials through uneven terrain such as snow, mud, sand, and water. The ATLAS supported our troops with active duty in operations such as Desert Storm and Desert Shield. The ATLAS telehandler was designed to fit the requirements of the U.S. Army, the U.S. Marine Corps, and the U.S. Air Force.
