Chinese manufacturer Sinoboom is to launch an all new 46ft telescopic boom lift, the TB14J Plus in Europe and the TB460J Plus in North America.
The new model is in many respects a classic 46ft telescopic boom lift with articulating jib, offering a maximum working height of 16.1 metres, with a maximum platform capacity of 454kg. Maximum outreach is 10.9 metres with the unrestricted capacity of 250kg, while 10 metres is possible with 340kg in the platform and 9.1 metres with the 450kg. Platform rotation is 160 degrees.
The new lift is unusual for a 46 in that it features a three section telescopic boom, rather than the usual two sections, this makes it up to two or three metres shorter when stowed – 7.99 metres with jib out or 5.88 metres with jib tucked under, although this raises the overall stowed height from 2.49 to 2.8 metres. Slew is 360 degrees continuous, the overall weight is 7,300kg.
The shorter overall length allows two units to fit into a 40ft shipping container – overall width is 2.3 metres – or on a standard flat bed truck. Power comes from a relatively small Kubota Stage V/Tier 4 diesel. A Yanmar is available for markets where emission restrictions are less onerous.
TB14J Plus features four wheel drive and oscillating axle providing a 40 percent gradeability. A seven inch display screen shows real time machine status, performance and usage data, along rapid fault diagnosis.
The first units are expected to ship before year end.
