Integration of Hydraulics into Dodge and Sterling Chassis

Staff | September 28, 2010

Iowa Mold Tooling Co. Inc. (IMT) has successfully integrated a hydraulic crane and air compressor into the new Dodge Ram 3500, 4500 and 5500 chassis, as well as the Sterling Bullet chassis.

IMT has been selling Dominator DSC20 and Dominator I service bodies with electric telescopic cranes mounted on these Class 4 and 5 chassis since their introduction in 2007 and now offers hydraulic crane and air compressor options.

Electric cranes are best for customers whose lifting needs are fairly light and whose duty cycles are intermittent. However, customers who need to lift more than 6,000 pounds or who use the crane more than once or twice a day will need a hydraulic telescopic crane.
