Posi-Plus debuted its new Line Champ 600 at ICUEE

Canadian manufacturer Posi-Plus Technologies took the wraps off its biggest Line Champ model at the 2009 International Construction and Utility Equipment Exposition (ICUEE). The 600-50-A offers a huge material handling capacity, coming in at 2,000 pounds and is the company's first articulated model.

Normand Bigras, vice president of sales and marketing for Posi-Plus, said material handling machines are in high demand for the company, accounting for 80-85 percent of sales. "They have a high capacity, are strong and durable and last up to 25 years."

The 600-50-A has an 8-degree slope certification, a 36.5-foot side reach, 400-pound single bucket capacity and an 84-inch jib with a 60-inch hydraulic extension. "It works well in low and high temps," Bigras said, noting the machine will perform up to par in -40 degrees to 100 degrees Fahrenheit.

The unit also features a fully proportional feather touch control, a 250-degree continually rotating jib, 55-foot platform height with a 60-foot working height and a 24-inch platform lift.

"We did a survey (with customers) to create this new unit," Bigras said. "(Customers) wanted big capacity."
