By Lindsey Anderson02 February 2010
MEC Aerial Work Platforms has unveiled a new 46-ft (14 m) boom.
The Titan Boom 40-S combines the capacity of a telehandler, deck of a scissor lift and reach and rotation of a boom, the company says. The unit features a 4,000-pound capacity, 22-foot, 90-inch deck and working height of 46 feet. The Titan Boom 40-S will make its debut on the second annual MEC Road Show, debuting in Orlando on Feb. 8.
The Titan can hold up to four workers plus tools and is designed to have sliding guardrails that allow for loads to be placed in loading zones on the platform deck. Once the guardrails are closed, the boom can then be raised.
The unit features three steering modes - two wheel, four wheel and crab steer, and has an automatic platform leveling system, smooth proportional controls and its platform can rotate 180 degrees. It has a 3,000-pound material load with up to four workers and tools to make for a total combined load of 4,000 pounds.
Powered by Kubota turbo diesel engine, the Titan Boom 40-S has 12 lanyard attachments and on-board diagnostics.
