Layton Holsinger, founder and president of the Davidson, North Carolina-based company, says: "National Crane makes the ideal boom truck for tree work which is why I’ve owned four or five of them over the years.

"When you grab a heavy load with the NBT55, you almost don’t realize it. You can extend the boom out to its maximum hydraulic reach and the machine always operates precisely, making it perfect for tree removal."

The NBT55 features a 55 USt capacity and 39m boom. It is one of the first boom trucks on the market to offer fully integrated machine control and a Rated Capacity Limiter (RCL). Its outrigger beam position sensing system aids in load chart selection.
