Altec and Iveco introduce the mobile crane

The new mobile crane from Altec and Iveco is now available for trial in the UK.

In last month’s BAUMA show in Germany, Altec Worldwide unveiled a new mobile crane. The unit is built on an Iveco Trakker AD340T41K 8x4 rigid chassis supplied by Hendy Van and Truck and is the first mobile crane to be fused to a regular truck. The telescopic crane simply offers potential buyers a more affordable option.

The crane features a 38m boom, which reaches 42m and can withhold a mass of 36 tonnes. An additional 16.5m jib is also on offer and an optional manned platform can be used to enable two operators to work at a maximum of 58.5m.

Although the crane is mounted to the truck, the weight is lifted using the hydraulic legs, so the crane’s sub-base takes all the weight as oppose to the truck. The truck will also be able to travel smoothly at maximum power due to the Trakker’s 12.8 litre Euro 5 cursor 13 engine.
