Korean manufacturer Junjin CSM is targeting the construction and rental sectors with a new 42 m telescopic boom platform. The boom was shown at the Conex exhibition in Seoul, South Korea, at the end of September.

Junjin has historically focussed on the ship building industry with its range of boom and scissor lifts, but the new JT 420 has been designed with construction applications in mind.

According to overseas sales director YS Moon, the new machine is part of a strategy to diversify into new markets. "We want to go to the construction and rental markets because we've been very focussed on ship building," he said, adding that up to 95% of the company's platform sales have historically been sold to shipyards.

The new machine features a hydraulically adjustable undercarriage that expands to widen the platform's footprint. The diesel powered lift also has a sleeker and more curved design than Junjin's other models.

As well as smaller straight boom lifts, the company has added 18 m to 25 m knuckle boom lifts in recent years along with a range of diesel and electric scissor lifts.

It also manufactures two models of insulated truck-mounted booms for work on live electric lines.
