The new JLG 1075 telescopic crane is a 10,000 lb class telescopic handler designed to increase productivity with a lifting height of 75 feet that eliminates the need for more expensive cranes on the job site. Capable of carrying up to eight decks, the JLG 1075 also features a range of 60 feet forward and 30 feet of reach up and over for more accurate load positioning. Lifting capacity at full height is 6000 pounds and up to a maximum of 2100 pounds. A 160-horsepower Cummins engine powers the unit and delivers 22,500 pounds of drawbar pull. The right-side electronic mirror with dual cameras enhances safety by allowing operators to see more. From forklifts it borrows technology from the company’s loaders, tractors and excavators including a hydrostatic drive that eliminates wear on engine and brake components. According to the company, the strength and design of the FH100-160-1 forklifts make them good choices for industries where heavy loads are common, including shipping, logistics, shipping, port, manufacturing, construction, metallurgy, oil and gas, and recycling and waste: Compared to traditional torque converter systems, The hydrostatics in the FH100-160-1 reduce maintenance costs, fuel consumption and downtime. Wet-sealed multi-disc brakes provide protection from dust, dirt and debris, durability, fading, water resistance, and fast, reliable braking in high-cycle operations. New Tadano Tracked Crane Fills the Void in the Market The Tadano GTC-1600’s flexible track positioning system provides multiple different track widths. Designed to fill a gap in the telescopic boom crawler market, the Tadano GTC-1600 has a main boom length of more than 200 feet and the ability to operate on off-level slopes of up to four degrees. The six-section boom extends from 42.8 feet to 200.1 feet. The boom uses a single-cylinder telescopic and stapling system to automatically extend and retract all sections and can be locked into specific working positions. The boom complements the 33.8-foot-long, 59.1-foot bi-fold boom with offsets of up to 40 degrees. The boom can be up to 105 feet in length with two optional 23-foot mesh inserts, for a maximum tip height of 305 feet. An optional 11.8-foot heavy-lift boom with 20° offset and 40° tilt up in tight spaces is also available. Tadano’s Opti-Width Flexible Track Positioning System gives you multiple symmetric and asymmetric track width settings without the need to install track frames in fixed positions. The GTC-1600’s hydraulic system makes multifunctional operation smooth and seamless, allowing travel, lifting and telescopic boom at the same time. Grove is updating the TMS9000-2 truck crane for more power and a faster setup. 1000 pounds and gained 25 horsepower. Manitowoc With the addition of the new Cummins X12 Tier 4 Final engine, Grove’s TMS9000-2 truck crane gains an additional 25 horsepower and now produces 475 horsepower. Additionally, changes to the brace design and placement improve setup procedures, while a new rear access ladder option adds practicality for everyday use. The rear outrigger box has been raised by less than five inches to improve the departure angle to 18 degrees, while the front strut jacks have been raised by 3.5 inches to improve ground clearance. This also makes sliding pedestal mats under the pads easier. In addition, there is now an additional three inches of outrigger stroke, while the outrigger pad size has been increased from 20 to 24 inches. According to Manitowoc, the Grove TMS9000-2 has the lowest GVW in the 115-ton class, and the latest model has been reduced by 1,000 pounds to 80,311 pounds for the base configuration. The truck crane’s payload schemes remain unaffected, thanks to the Megaform’s six-section 36 x 169-foot boom and single telescopic cylinder with a fully hydraulic two-lock stabilization system. Manitowoc’s automated laser welding process leaves only one welding line on the boom, instead of the previous three, to produce a higher quality, stronger and lighter design.
