Zoomlion’s ZT68J at the Fire Services Training Centre in Shanghai

With the 67.5m working height ZT68J, Zoomlion launched the world’s largest telescopic boom lift at Bauma China in 2020, providing access up to 20 stories.

Right now, the model is being used to paint the outside wall of the Fire Services Training Centre in Shanghai, China. The 17-storey building is around 56m high, requiring a super-high boom.

As the manufacturer says, the horizontal outreach up to 31m and an unrestricted platform capacity of 300kg are making easy work of the paint job, along with the model’s quick and precise positioning and telescopic jib with a -55° to +70° arc.

Moreover, the lift’s single cylinder allows synchronised extension of the four-section boom. In addition, the unit has 40% gradeability and four-wheel drive.
