Altec Launches 45-Ton Telescopic Boom Crane | Construction News

Altec Industries Inc. has released its new AC45-127S telescopic boom crane.

“Altec has a customer-focused product development process,” says Matt Trefz, market manager for Altec Cranes. “When we began the 45-ton project, customers told us they needed more capacity beyond a 25-ft. load radius, a ‘solid’ feel at a 100-ft. load radius, and road transport without weight permits. Altec’s engineering team was able to deliver a 45-ton boom truck with a stronger chart, better feel and attractive payload compared to alternative products.”

The AC45-127S is built with lower winch control, front entry cab, and engine start/stop at the tail shelf  that minimizes slip/trip/fall hazard exposure. The tilt cab featureis designed to improve visibility and reduce operator neck strain and associated fatigue.

The design means to simplify preventative maintenance and reduce downtime. The LMI reel is mounted at the boom heel and protected by a metal cover while the A2B cable is routed through the boom.

Features Include:

  • 45-ton maximum capacity
  • 127-ft., 5-section boom
  • 55-ft. telescopic jib
  • Improved cycle times
