The new cab provides safe, convenient access to the crane controls throughout the range of rotation, which reduces slip/trip/fall hazard exposure on the job site. The top and front surfaces are shatter resistant to protect the operator.

Designed with input from crane operators, Altec’s Load Moment and Area Protection System (LMAP), will, Altec says, take safety and productivity to the next level with a simple and intuitive user interface.

Altec’s newest offering, the AC45-127S telescopic boom crane, offers best-in-class safety and operator convenience.

The AC45-127S is built with features that set a new benchmark in job site safety, Altec says. These include the lower winch control, front entry cab and engine start/stop at the tail shelf, all of which minimize slip/trip/fall hazard exposure. The tilt cab feature improves visibility while reducing operator neck strain and associated fatigue.

A service-driven design simplifies preventative maintenance and reduces downtime. The LMI reel is mounted at the boom heel and protected by a metal cover, while the A2B cable is routed through the boom for better reliability.

Other Altec equipment to be showcased include the AC18-70B and AC23-95B cranes, and HD35A pressure digger.
