Crane King Cog

Here's one for 'Crane King Cog'...I learn that Altec Worldwide has come up with a new type of mobile crane which it displayed to great effect on its stand at last month's BAUMA Show in Munich, Germany. What's more the demonstrator, built on an Iveco Trakker AD340T41K 8x4 rigid chassis is now available to crane operators throughout the UK for trials. And how can you get your hands on one (and see some rather nice shots of it too)? Well naturally click on here where Biglorryblog will provide all the details you need...

And what's so special about it? Well it's one of the first telescopic construction cranes to be mounted onto a regular heavy truck, offering operators a more affordable and flexible option than purchasing a dedicated crane chassis---which I imagine don't come cheap either...

The demonstrator incorporates a 38m long boom which offers an operating height of up to 42m, combined with a maximum lifting capacity of 36 tonnes. Operators can also specify an additional jib which increases the lift height by a further 16.5m. An optional manned platform can also transform the crane into a versatile access machine allowing two people to work at heights of up to 58.5m."
