Bauman adds National boom truck
By Sarah Ann McCay16 September 2013
Bauman Crane has added a National Crane NBT45 boom truck to its fleet in the USA.
The Pennsylvania-based rental firm has expanded its services to include tree care work and will use the 45 US ton (40.8 tonne) capacity boom truck primarily for this type of work. The new service will supplement its taxi crane business.
“Having 43.3 meters (142 feet) of boom on a truck that’s mounted on a commercial carrier allows for faster work that will be beneficial in our projects, such as installing air conditioners and tree removal,” commented David Kemmerer, Bauman Crane owner. No travel permits are required for the crane so transportation is made much simpler.
The crane has an outrigger span of 7.52 m (24.7 ft) that can be positioned at zero, 50 and 100 percent extension. The crane also offers continuous rotation and has a load moment indicator, a work area definition system and overload protection.
Bauman Crane’s fleet now includes eight National Crane 1500 series cranes, two National Crane 1400 series cranes, a National Crane 1800 series crane and, the newest addition, the National Crane NBT45.
Stephenson Equipment, an official dealer in Manitowoc cranes, Grove cranes, National Crane boom trucks and Potain tower cranes, based in Pennsylvania, handled the NBT45 sale.
