A Manitex 30100C boom truck, provided by Nevada dealer, Nixon-Egli Equipment Co., will be the official test crane for all operators taking the NCCCO's telescopic-boom—fixed-cab practical exams on site at ConExpo-Con/Agg, March 7-11 in Las Vegas. Event attendees can also watch live practical exam demonstrations in NCCCO’s Lift Safety Zone, booth G4301 in the Gold Lot.

The testing is part of the National Commission for the Certification of Crane Operators “Visit ConExpo—Leave Certified” program that offers new candidates and existing certificants the opportunity to take a wide variety of ANSI-accredited and OSHA-compliant CCO written, practical, and re-certification exams and receive their results right on site.

On all five days of the show, CCO practical exams will be offered for mobile and articulating crane operators. On March 8 and 9, practical exams will be offered for the Signalperson and Rigger Level I programs.

“We are thrilled to have the Manitex 30100C boom truck as part of NCCCO’s practical exam offerings at ConExpo. Having new machines from one of the leading equipment manufacturers ensures our candidates are testing on the most current equipment in the industry,” said Joel Oliva, NCCCO director of operations and program development.  

The Manitex 30100C has 30-ton maximum capacity and four-section, 100-ft. proportional boom. It is an ideal material handler for pump work, construction, or oil-field operations.

The crane being used at ConExpo is mounted on a Peterbilt 348 chassis, is backed by Manitex’s comprehensive UPTime customer support, and is for sale at Nixon-Egli Equipment.

“The Manitex 30100C was designed for the kind of versatility that operators must demonstrate in their tests,” said Randy Robertson, director of sales at Manitex. “We are proud to introduce this crane to testing operators and allow them to demonstrate all that it can do.”
