QMC Introduces New Boom Truck


QMC, Fountain Valley, Calif., introduces the new 7053R boom truck designed to provide heavy-lift performance while preserving payload capability. The 7053R will carry 12,500 pounds of payload with a lift axle, according to the company. With the addition of a two-axle trailer, total payload jumps to 24,000 pounds with a nondivisible load as high as 18,000 pounds on the trailer, all while meeting federal bridge law restrictions. Originally designed for the oilfield service industry, the crane is suited for applications requiring heavy lifts with moderate boom lengths.

It can be equipped with hydraulically-driven air compressors, welder/generator sets, and oxy/acetylene cutting equipment to make it a complete field service rig. Optional remote control, designed to reduce rig up time and operator fatigue, is available.

Each QMC crane is engineered to minimize chassis requirements, eliminating the need for a double frame and the extra cost, weight, and corrosion problems associated with them. The company’s staff will work directly with the truck manufacturer to ensure that the crane/truck combination is optimized, according to the company. All load calculations are based on the machine’s unique combination to ensure that the final load chart is maximized. Many combinations of wheelbase and number of axles are possible, states QMC.
