A new line of telescopic service cranes ranges in capacity from 7,500 to 14,000 pounds with all-hydraulic extensions ranging from 21 to 30 feet, depending on the model. Articulation ranges from -10 to +80 degrees. An on-demand speed control boosts engine rpm only when the crane is in use, and it returns the engine to idle after 5 seconds of inactivity. The cranes come with the CDTplus remote control system that controls and monitors the cranes in real time. Two-color LCD screen and sensory indicators are built into the control to alert the operator with live feedback such as actual load, current reach, remaining reach, and when approaching maximum capacity. A Boost Mode permits the crane to operate at 118 percent of its normal operating capacity for a short period of time. The optional E-Link equipment control system is mounted in the cab and allows the operator to control and monitor the equipment on the service truck.
