US manufacturer Iowa Mold Tooling (IMT) has introduced two new models to its line up of truck mounted articulating cranes.

The 40/275 crane provides a lifting capacity of 8.6 tonnes while the 50/345 model offers 10.3 tonnes. The 40/275 and 50/345 can have up to eight hydraulic extensions for maximum horizontal reaches of 21.3 m and 21.4 m, respectively.

Both models feature ultra-high tensile steel that means lower weight, high lift capacity at long reach and increased payload.

The 40/275 and 50/345 cranes feature a dual power plus link arm system (DL), suited for long reaches and lifting in high positions with equipment such as a fly jib and winch.

All IMT articulating crane models have an RCL (rated capacity limiter) 5300 safety system, which monitors the crane’s load moment, operation and function. If the unit becomes overloaded, the system warns the operator and interrupts the distribution of oil for crane functions.
