Elliott and Utility One Source Unveil E190 Aerial Device | Construction News


In response to industry requests for a taller, more efficient, higher capacity work platform, Elliott Equipment Company and Utility One Source have developed the 190-ft E190 E-Line lift in an exclusive partnership to serve the utility market.

Now the tallest truck-mounted telescopic aerial made in North America, Elliott’s new 190-ft. E190 E-Line was unveiled at this year’s ICUEE Expo.

“This is an extremely significant product for us,” explains Jim Glazer, president of Elliott Equipment, “It offers an industry-leading working height without a jib and also adds new features to the E-Line series (isolating jib and isolating platform yoke). We listened closely to leaders in the industry when developing this machine.”

As with all Elliott HiReach and E-Line products, the E190 conforms to ANSI A92.2 standards for vehicle-mounted rotating aerial devices. As a result, this machine and others in the E-Line are exempt from OSHA’s trial lift and proof test requirements, thereby increasing efficiency without sacrificing safety or compliance with federal regulations.

The innovative E190 reaches 184-ft. platform height on its full-powered boom and can reach 196 ft. of platform height with its fiberglass jib extension.

All functions are monitored by a work-envelope-management system that senses lift cylinder pressures, boom length, and boom angle, and that has a hydraulic lockout safety feature. Its work-area-definition system lets the operator to set jobsite parameters around obstacles or hazards.

The Elliott E190’s key features and options include:

190-ft. working height (184-ft. platform height) on full-powered boom
202-ft. working height (196-ft. platform height) on electrically isolating jib extension
‘EZ-Crib’ outriggers that provide 30 in. of additional vertical travel to reduce cribbing and setup time
36" x 72" platform with 1,200-lb. capacity and hydraulic dampening yoke
Hydraulic tool circuit with 10,000-psi intensifier in the work platform increasing usable platform capacity
Wireless proportional controls with hard-wired backup
30,000-lb. material-handling capacity
Non-metallic load line saves weight, increases safety, and improves ease of use.
Optional electric isolating platform yoke          
Optional heated and air conditioned lower control cab

The Elliott E190 model is available for immediate rental and retail from Utility One Source and is backed by a lifetime structural warranty.
