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.
