To help customers lift and service jumbo-sized components like big dozer blades, loader buckets and precast concrete, IMT has come out with two new truck-mounted articulating cranes that offer nearly double the capacity of previous lines. The 52/380 series has a maximum lifting capacity of 26,000 pounds at 14 feet 6 inches and the 72/516 series will hoist 35,500 pounds up to 14 feet 4 inches. Both cranes are designed for two to eight hydraulic extensions, and with eight extensions can reach 67.6 feet horizontally and 77 feet vertically with 360-degree continuous rotation. Wireless radio controls come standard and both cranes can be equipped with optional hydraulic jibs.
