The new booms, offer a working height of 20.6 metres and a maximum outreach of 12.3 metres with a 1.83 metre jib offering 130 degrees of articulation and an unrestricted platform capacity of 300kg. They use the well proven AC electric wheel motor drive system from the manufacturer’s 60ft Z-60 DC and FE articulated boom lifts. Four wheel drive plus electronic traction management and active oscillating axles provide 45 percent gradeability. The S-60 DC weighs 7,983kg while the FE version weighs 8,051kg.

Global product director Sean Larin said: “Although these booms have only been in the market since May, the S-60 FE and S-60 DC have already garnered industry accolades for their ability to offer performance, versatility and a reduce environmental footprint.”

“These booms can work outdoors in rugged terrain at the beginning of a project, and then move indoors for the finishing work, meeting multiple end user needs with a single machine, saving the time, money and hassle of transporting new machines to a jobsite in the middle of a project. For that reason, rental companies can expect a high utilisation rate and strong returns on their investment.”
