IMT Telescopic Cranes Feature New Boom Design

IMT Telescopic Cranes Feature New Boom Design

Last month, Iowa Mold Tooling Co. Inc., (IMT), Garner, Iowa, introduced a new line of telescopic cranes at ConExpo-Con/Agg in Las Vegas, Nev. The new product line, which includes six models, are rated from 7,500 to 14,000 pounds. In addition, to support the cranes’ expanded reach and capacity capabilities, IMT has upgraded its Series I, II, and IV Dominator mechanics trucks and added a Dominator III body.

The trucks now have a stabilizer at the right front of the body that extends out and down to allow operators to perform lifts in the approved load area at full capacity of the crane load chart. An additional new feature is an energy absorbing boom stow.

The cranes feature a patent-pending Penta Boom design, rather than the former box boom style. The flat top eliminates stress concentrations and a half hex controls tracking at long reaches. Each model offers up to 30 feet of reach. Other features include

  • Ten degrees of negative boom angle, allowing the crane to be reached more easily from ground level.
  • A fully proportional pistol grip radio remote control with LED overload indicator lights on the handle.
  • A flip sheave boom tip for added lift height in tight quarters.
  • A planetary winch that allows for faster hoisting and lowering speeds and smoother overall operation.
  • A patent-pending boom hook stow that allows the boom hook to be stowed more easily and faster.

The Dominator I model is compatible with the 7,500-pound 7500 crane, while the Dominator II supports the 7500, 8600, 9500, and 10000 cranes. The Dominator III is designed for the 12,000-pound 12000 crane and the Dominator IV fits the 12000 and 14000 models.
