Altec launches AC45-127S, 45 ton crane
Altec has launched a new 45 ton boom truck/truck crane, the AC45-127S with 38.5 metre five section boom and 16.6 metre telescopic jib.
Mounted on a three axle truck it features up to two suspended axles to allow permit free road travel in all states. The superstructure cab has a front entry and hydraulic tilt function for improved visibility. Options include a two man work platform, remote controls and an auxiliary winch.
Market manager Matt Trefz said: “Altec has a customer-focused product development process, when we began the 45 ton project, customers told us they needed more capacity beyond a 25-foot load radius, a ‘solid’ feel at a 100-foot load radius, and road transport without weight permits. Altec’s engineering team was able to deliver a 45-ton boom truck with a stronger chart, better feel and attractive payload compared to alternative products.”
