Exhibiting at the Bauma China exhibition in Shanghai, Hunan-based Sinoboom told Access International that it will soon begin production of a 15 m working height, articulated boom truck mounted platform, a 15 m articulated self-propelled boom and a 10 m scissor lift. The company has previously focused on telescopic, self-propelled machines with working heights up to around 40 m.
Sinoboom said the first models to be CE-marked would be the telescopic booms, followed by the rest of the range.
The manufacturer said its machines are designed and built to the European EN280 standard and also the Chinese JG/T5101 standard (which Sinoboom said is based on ANSI standards) and using hydraulic components from the US and Europe.
