Almac will launch a new 46ft Jibbi 1670Evo tracked self-propelled/self-levelling telescopic boom lift next week
The new telescopic boom lift will be launched at a series of ‘events’ to be held on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday next week at Almac’s manufacturing facility in Viadana, Italy, and will be broadcast on the company’s social media platforms.
The Jibbi 1670 EVO features a three section telescopic boom topped by an articulated jib to offer a working height of 16 metres and an outreach of between 6.7 metres with the 250kg maximum platform capacity, 7.7 metres with 140kg, while the maximum outreach is 8.5 metres with up to 80kg in the platform, depending on the track width selected - 1.35, 1.9 or 2.35 metres - and the superstructure slew position. The platform can also be driven at working heights of up nine metres.
The boom includes a new variable undercarriage track width allowing the operator to extend the width of the machine from 1.35 to 1.9, 2.2 or 2.45 metres to provide a range of configurations for applications ranging from narrow aisle work to providing maximum 360 degree stability on side slopes.
As with the three Jibbi 1250 models in the company’s JT boom lift range, the 1670Evo incorporates automatic dynamic ‘Pro-Active’ levelling, allowing the machine to drive at height on slopes or undulating ground of up to 40 percent, with 15 degrees of side to side and 15 degrees of longitudinal levelling. The overall weight of the machine is 3,850kg, with a maximum ground bearing pressure of 3.1kN/m2/316kg per square metre (0.5psi).
A new radio remote control panel incorporating the ‘MyAlmac Control Panel’ telematics system continuously monitors the machine's service status, while offering the possibility for owners to remotely interact with the machine and modify the machine’s operating parameters. Power comes from a three cylinder Yanmar diesel.
Overall travel width is 1.35 metres, with a stowed height of 1.99 metres and an overall length of 5.17 metre, which can be reduced to 4.4 metres by removing the quick disconnect platform. The standard 1.4 metre wide basket also can be replaced with a larger 1.8 metre platform option - both of which offer 140 degrees of platform rotation. An ultrasonic secondary guarding system combined with an upper and lower ‘anti-crush barrier function’ comes as standard, while options include the 200 Series winch kit to convert the platform into a small tracked crane.
The three live events including demonstrations and presentations will be broadcast at 13:30 on June 9th, 16:30 on the 10th and 8:30 on the 11th, Central European Time.
