Altec Industries Unveils New Crane Features
Altec Industries Inc. will exhibit multiple new crane options at ConExpo 2014. Ranging from 18 to 45 tons (16 to 41 t), each crane is a display of Altec's dedication to provide value to customers on crane safety, productivity and operator convenience. Altec is located in Booth #1827 in the Gold Lot.
New Cab Design
Altec was the first boom truck crane manufacturer to offer a tilt cab feature, which debuted at ConExpo 2011. In 2014, Altec will unveil a new crane cab that improves safety and operator convenience.
The new cab provides safe, convenient access to the crane controls throughout the range of rotation, which reduces slip/trip/fall hazard exposure on the job site. The top and front surfaces are shatter-resistant to protect the operator.
Designed with input from crane operators, Altec's load moment and area protection system (LMAP), has taken safety and productivity to the next level with a simple and intuitive user interface. A large, color display provides more information during operation.
Altec's newest equipment offering, the AC45-127S telescopic boom crane is built with features that include the lower winch control, front entry cab and engine start/stop at the tail shelf, all which minimize slip/trip/fall hazard exposure. The tilt cab feature improves visibility while reducing operator neck strain and associated fatigue.
A service-driven design simplifies preventive maintenance and reduces downtime. The LMI reel is mounted at the boom heel and protected by a metal cover, while the A2B cable is routed through the boom for better reliability.
Other Altec equipment to be showcased includes the AC18-70B and AC23-95B cranes, and HD35A pressure digger.
