Tadano's TM-1882 boom truck was on display at ICUEE with its “low profile” rear mounted unit on a short wheelbase Sterling. The unit sits 8 to 9 inches lower than a regular 1882. The non-insulated machine has 110 feet of power boom.
The four-year old model has a six section boom, which means no overhang over the cab, said Bryan Dammann, boom truck sales manager for North America. The benefit of the low profile allows the unit to fit under bridge clearances in certain areas, and the TM-1882 is NY certified. As standard with Tadano machines, it has out-and-down riggers.
The units are manufactured in Japan. Baskets are available and are provided by Diversified.
