It is rated at eight metres and features a 33 metre four section main boom, topped by an 11 metre, three section, telescopic offsettable jib and a two metre extension for a maximum tip height of 46 metres. It can handle one tonne at 26 metres and 250kg at 39 metres.

Thanet’s new Böcker AK 46/6000

Features include variable outrigger spread with automatic levelling and wireless remote controls with a colour information display. It has been mounted on a 26 tonne MAN chassis with rear axle steering.
Operations director Jack Stickings said: “Bockers are very popular with our customers due to their versatility and speedy set up. And the 46/6000 brings added advantages of great working height and heavier lift capability, complementing our existing fleet. It looks fantastic in our new livery and is part of our ongoing expansion programme which continues throughout 2022.”
