Altec to Unveil New Boom Truck at ICUEE

Altec, Birmingham, Ala., will be unveiling the AC23-95B boom truck at the 2009 International Construction and Utility Equipment Exposition (ICUEE). The new crane will have a 23.5-ton maximum capacity, 95-foot boom, and an optional 44-foot two-piece jib, which measures 26 feet when retracted. The maximum working radius is 90 feet and the maximum tip height is 148 when equipped with the optional two-piece jib.

Walk-through control consoles provide convenient access directly from the control station. Standard three position out-and-down outriggers offer superior setup flexibility. Optional features include an 800-pound capacity personnel platform, a platform test lift package, and radio remote controls. To maximize usable bed space, recessed load block, and ball storage is available.

The AC23-95B has a minimum recommended gross vehicle weight rating of 50,000 pounds with a gross axle weight rating for the front of 16,000 pounds and 34,000 pounds in the rear. Typical installations will afford 6,000 pounds of payload directly over the rear axles, while conforming to Federal Bridge Gross Weight Formula.
