Aichi USA Launches Track-Mounted Boom Lifts

Aichi USA, Glen Burnie, Md., officially launched its 40-foot ISR40 and ISR40J, 60-foot ISR60 and ISR60J, and 70-foot ISR70 and ISR70J track-mounted boom lifts at The Rental Show.

The smallest of the Aichi boom lifts are the 39'8” tall ISR40 and ISR40J, which feature platform capacities of 550 pounds, 180-degree platform rotation, and 360-degree turntable rotation. Gradeability for the ISR40 and ISR40J is 58 percent, and these boom lifts also have zero turning radius. Ground pressure is rated at 9.39 psi for the 16,413-pound ISR40 and 10.53 psi for the 18,166-pound ISR40J.

The ISR40 measures 7'7”x20'10”x6'7” when stowed, while the ISR40J has the same height and width but is about 5 feet longer. Stowed drive speed for both models is 2 mph. Power is supplied by a 28-hp Isuzu engine.

Aichi's ISR60 and ISR60J track-mounted boom lifts feature maximum platform heights of 59'1” and platform capacities of 500 pounds. Platform rotation is 180 degrees, and turntable rotation is 360 degrees.

When stowed, the ISR60 measures 8'1”x30'1”x7'9”, and the ISR60J is 8'1”x32'11”x7'9”. Both units offer 55 percent gradeability and zero turning radius. Ground pressure is rated at 11 psi on the 28,200-pound ISR60 and 12 psi on the 28,400-pound ISR60J. Powered by a 60-hp Isuzu engine, the maximum travel speed is 1.5 mph with the units in a stowed position.

When stowed, the ISR70 measures 8'1”x33'4”x7'9”, and the ISR70J shares the same width and height but is about 5 feet longer. Rated ground pressure is 13 psi on the 32,700-pound ISR70 and 14 psi on the 33,500-pound ISR70J. Maximum travel speed when stowed is 1.5 mph. A 60-hp Isuzu engine powers these boom lifts.

Designed for stability and maneuverability, General Manager Alan Dotts said the Aichi track-mounted booms lifts will work everywhere a rubber tire machine will go, plus 25 percent further. These machines work in sand, dirt, and gravel and offer low ground-pressure. For example, the Aichi ISR60 features a rated ground-contact-pressure of 11 psi, while other 60-foot rough-terrain boom lifts have close to 70 psi.

Dotts also reported that deliveries of Aichi's track-mounted boom lifts started earlier this year. In January, Ideal Crane of Wisconsin received two ISR40s and an ISR40J.
