The 750-pound capacity platform measures 8 x 3 feet, and a 10-foot, 180-degree rotating jib helps position the platform. It can be driven at full height at speeds between 2.5 to 0.1 mph. Stowed dimensions are 10 high, 8 feet 2 inches wide, and 42 feet 7 inches long. Weight is 54,000 pounds. The redesigned X-chassis extends and retracts. New platform controls consist of toggle switches and fully proportional jib and boom controls. The ground controls offer an updated function diagram layout and tactile membrane switches.
