The Series 1300H boom truck, introduced by National Crane, is the model which can be mounted on a three-axle truck and the only stand-up control crane with pilot-operated hydraulics, the manufacturer said. The new Easy Reach control console moves itself back and forth through the operator stations, reducing operator work time, and the adjustable operating height is designed for comfortable operation. The four-section boom comes in 21 m, 30.5 m and 33.5 m lengths, with a maximum tip height of 49 m using the 33.5 m boom and 13.4 m jib.
