Elliott introduces 32-ton boom truck with swing cab
18 April 2008
Elliott Equipment starts the New Year with two new boom truck models, the 32-ton capacity 32117 and the long reach 18125.
With a 117-foot long, four- section boom, the 32117 incorporates several exclusive features designed to increase operator productivity, including the largest swing cab in its class for maximum legroom and operator comfort. Elliott has incorporated extensive use of glass in the cab for better sight lines and a new “thumb throttle” engine speed control (patent pending), which eliminates the foot throttle and allows the operator to keep both feet securely on the operator platform and control the speed of the load.
Additionally, the 32117 has a 127 foot tip height as well as electric over hydraulic controls for enhanced control over the load. The high mounting of the boom pivot pin was designed to provide additional “power out of the hole” for better lifting. The unit features a 12 month parts and labor warranty and a five year limited structural warranty.
The long reach 18125 features a 125 foot, five-section telescopic boom, giving it a 137 foot tip height. Standard features and benefits of this new model include a 125-foot boom that allows the unit to reach 137 feet without the use of a jib.
In its standard rear-mounted configuration, the machine has a 36'8” overall length and mounts on a 54,000 pound tandem axle chassis, so no permitting is required. The 18125 can be equipped with a gravity leveled work platform with proportional radio remote controls. This feature can transform the unit into an aerial device.
Elliott has announced it will introduce more new models to the market in the coming months.
