28 February 2008
Two new 26 ton (23.6 tonne) capacity boom trucks have been unveiled by US telescopic truck-mounted equipment manufacturer Elliot Equipment.
The 2695 and 26105 models have a 95 foot (30 m) powered main boom, with a 105 foot (32 m) tip height and a 105 foot (32 m) boom giving a 115 foot (35 m) tip height, respectively. Both feature a range of jib lengths, platforms and accessories depending on customer requirements, along with the company's FrictionFree jib extension for easy deployment and storage and a load moment indicator, said Doug Twyford, Elliot VP sales and marketing.
“These 26 ton models demonstrate Elliott's commitment to developing a full line of material handling solutions. We have worked extensively with users of this equipment to give them the features and ability to do more with this product than with any other unit in its class,” added Twyford.
