Badger Equipment and Associated Training Services (ATS) have teamed up to demonstrate the new Badger CD4415 rough terrain crane to crane operators.
A factory-new Badger CD4415 rough terrain crane has been on the ground at the ATS operator school in Sun Prairie, Wisconsin since September.
ATS students have been using the new Badger CD4415 to complete their practical exams for NCCCO certification.
The Badger CD4415 rough terrain crane is just over 11 feet (3.35 metres) tall with a 15 US ton (13.6 tonne) rating at a 10 foot (3 m) working radius. Maximum boom length is 62.5 feet (19 m) and maximum tip height is 85.5 feet (21.6 m). The crane features four-wheel drive and four-wheel steering, multiple boom configurations, an ergonomically engineered two-door cab with joystick controls and removable outriggers.
“Part of the reason I think the CD4415 is so appealing and intuitive for our new operators is because of the high tech controls and displays. The CD4415 is operated with joysticks, like a video game,” explained ATS owner and president John Klabacka.
“We’re very happy to get some exposure and grow the relationship. In our industry we understand the need to have qualified operators, so we’re glad to support what ATS is doing,” added Badger director of sales T.A. Lee.
