Two new Nationals planned for Icuee
01 May 2008
Two new boom trucks will be added to National Crane's product line at this month's ICUEE exhibition in Louisville, Kentucky.
The 30 ton capacity 13100A (pictured), is the latest addition to the 1300A series and the provisional specification shows a maximum tip height of 162 feet.
The crane is fitted with the newly designed Visioncab, which, the manufacturer says, provides far greater visibility. Other features of the new cab include swing controls located in the armrests and the option of open seat controls as an alternative.
The other new National on show will be the 690E–U ENVI, a “clean” crane that runs on biodegradeable diesel and uses vegetable oil in the hydraulic system. National says the crane will be particularly useful to those who work in environmentally sensitive locations.
Lifting capacity is 20 tons and the crane has a 90 foot, four section boom and a 45 foot two section jib. Maximum tip height is 144 feet. As with other National boom trucks, the 690E–U ENVI has H–style outriggers with full and mid span settings.
