Shake colors imitate natural wood

DaVinci Roofscapes® has introduced its Nature Crafted Collection of three composite shake shingle colors. Designed to imitate the appearance of natural woods, the Nature Crafted Collection colors are Aged Cedar, a burnt red cedar tone; Mossy Cedar, a damp green color; and Black Oak, which imitates the look of dark, aged cedar. Nature Crafted Collection colors are available in wavy or straight grains on all DaVinci Roofscapes single-width and multiwidth shake composite roof tiles, which reportedly will not split, crack, curl or fade.

Telehandler extends 55 feet

Xtreme Manufacturing™ has made available its Xtreme XR1055 rough terrain telehandler. With a load capacity of 10,000 pounds, the telehandler reportedly can reach heights up to 55 feet and has a maximum 40-foot forward reach. Designed to withstand tough work-site conditions, the Xtreme XR1055 telehandler features a 74-horsepower high-torque 3.8-liter Cummins engine and a heavy-duty steel frame, chassis and boom. The compact, four-section boom can be used to navigate loads around tight work sites, and users are said to have 360-degree visibility from the cab to enable safe handling of loads.
