Omme Lift to launch lightweight hybrid boom
By Sarah Ann McCay12 February 2014
Danish manufacturer Omme Lift is adding a new lightweight 42m hybrid tracked boom lift.
The new 4200 RBDJ comes with a seven-section telescopic boom, offering a working height of 42 m and an outreach of up to 15.2m, making it the manufacturer's largest machine.
Omme officially launches the 4200 RBDJ at the APEX 2014 exhibition in Amsterdam this June and expects to ship the first units from its factory in Denmark in the third quarter of this year.
The 4200 RBDJ comes with a 130° articulating jib. The boom can be raised and extended simultaneously, while auto-levelling outrigger deployment and retraction comes as standard.
The diesel/battery hybrid drive train means that the 4200 RBDJ can be used in outdoor and indoor environments. The 400Ah battery pack is automatically recharged whenever the diesel engine is deployed, which eliminates any ‘voltage drop’ issue.
Carsten Poulsen, area sales manager for Omme Lift, said, “This is a lightweight 42 m boom offering a true battery-diesel hybrid drive train. The battery power provides self-drive and fast lift operation without inconvenient and potentially hazardous connection to the mains. Moreover, power cuts or local voltage fluctuations do not have an influence on a battery lift performance.”
The boom is mounted on a two-gear crawler undercarriage designed to traverse hilly or uneven terrain.
