Iowa Mold Tooling (IMT) has launched the new 42684 hydraulic loader crane. The range-topping model first appeared at the 2018 Gypsum Management Supply (GMS) Expo in Charlotte, North Carolina, USA.
John Field, IMT product manager, said, “Our newest hydraulic loader crane offers customers another option for precise handling and expert manoeuvrability of palletised materials in the building supply construction industries.”
The 42684 is rated with a maximum load moment of 305,580 foot-pounds. Lifting capacity is 10,500 pounds (4,763 kg). There is up to 84 feet (25.6 metres) of horizontal reach and a maximum vertical reach of 95 feet (29 m).
Hydraulic out-and-down stabilisers provide stability for loading and unloading palletized goods, IMT said. A high lift-to-weight ratio allows for maximum payload on the truck.
“At IMT we’re committed to helping our customers achieve improved productivity, profitability and efficiency with our products. The new 42684 provides the strength, reach and precision to quickly and easily load and unload materials,” said Field. “The 42684 offers the longest and highest lift capacity of any IMT loader crane currently in the market.”
Features of the new IMT 42684 loader include: radio remote control with InfoCenter, which hass a two-line monochrome LED display. The Progressive Crane Control (PCC) function is to ensure smooth crane movement and higher operator efficiency. Another feature is Priority Flow Control (PFC) which is to ensure maximum performance when operating multiple functions at the same time.
